Richard Kingsmill announces departure from triple j

Richard Kingsmill announced on Monday December 11 that he will be stepping away from the youth station after a 30-year career. Kingsmill has been with triple j since 1988.

The group music director was one of the architects behind triple j’s Unearthed program
Kingsmill says he’ll still contribute towards the Australian music scene

In 2003, as triple j Music Director, he again increased the opportunities for local artists.

“After all this time, the single thing I’m proudest of was seeing triple j increase its Australian music content from 30 per cent to 60 per cent,” he said.

And for years, all I ever heard from the commercial radio sector was Australian music was bad for ratings. Well, we did what we did, and more than doubled our audience reach in the process.”

triple j saw its five capital city audiences grow from 980,000 in 2006, to surpass 2 million in 2017, and reach its current record of 2.3 million in 2022.
