He is the Triple M host who has been a panellist on several programs including The Project, Dirty Laundry Live and Have You Been Paying Attention?
But on Monday, Marty Sheargold revealed the one reality TV show he’d never agree to sign up for.

‘It feels like end of career stuff, that stuff. It doesn’t feel like building a career. You’re either starting or ending, it shouldn’t be in the middle of your career,’ Sheargold said.
During the interview, he also revealed he has banned reality stars from appearing on The Marty Sheargold Show, saying they are just ‘filler’ content.
He said: ‘I’ll never do that. That to me is filler and lazy.’

Sheargold said some breakfast radio hosts devote lengthy segments to interviewing reality TV stars simply because they’re desperate for content.
He said the result is usually ‘awful’ radio and insulting to the listener.
Sheargold has probably made the right decision by avoiding reality stars, as his audience at Triple M skews towards Gen-Xers and boomers who tend not to watch shows like The Bachelor and Married At First Sight.

But this wasn’t the case during his previous role as a host on Nova FM’s Kate, Tim and Marty drive show, where he would routinely chat to Bachelor and MAFS contestants.
Reality stars regularly appear on metro and regional breakfast radio shows as part of their contractual publicity duties.
Sheargold broadcast his final show for Nova in September, and was replaced on the drive show by comedian Joel Creasey, 30.
