Matthew Johns is back

By Nathan Taylor

Well it looks like it anyways. Matthew Johns who was everyone's favourite Johns brother until earlier this year when his television career went into meltdown after the infamous Cronulla Sharks sex scandal emerged is due to resurrect his media career but this time in radio.

It has been widely reported recently that Johns was to co-host the new Triple M breakfast show following the axing of Ugly Phil and Sami Lukas a few weeks back.

It's believed he will be joined by cricket legend Michael Slater who's also becoming a rising sports media star on radio and television.

It's likely the show wont launch until next January, but in the meantime Triple M have signed up Gus Worland (Aussie Goes Bolly, Barmy, Calypso Fox 8 series host), Mark Geyer and Stuart MacGill to fill the breakfast slot for the rest of the year.

I can't wait until Matty comes back, alot of people were really upset about his suspension from commentary commitments on Channel 9 and as star of The Footy Show, so it will be great to see him back in this way and hopefully he can make it back onto our screens in time for the 2010 NRL season.

Matty's a great talent and his contributions to Rugby League shouldn't be wasted.
