RIP Ernie. From Teenage Mailbag to 3AW and everything in between, what a great entertainer. You will be missed.
Just loved listening to you (I think I bought the average listener age down a couple of decades ☺️).
I will never forget your kindness of giving me our first ever BBQ after a on-air chat.

Rip Ernie . Great asset for 3AW. Loved in on afternoons and most of all Friday lunch condolences to his family. Another great Aussie gone.
RIP Ernie. Thankyou for the many years of entertainment on TV and radio. The world needs more of your kind of fun. No agendas, just laughs at every turn, and able to span the age groups. I will always remember you with a smile on my face, and that’s a rare gift to give people. Sincerest condolences to Glenys and his family.
Vale to the great man, a Little Battler who gave so much entertainment to generations of listeners & viewers. I think Ernie, I think Denise & also his great friend Denis. Condolences to Glenys, his family & the entertainment community. Alzheimer’s is insidious & to watch loved ones deteriorate is enormously painful. Thanks Ernie for all the smiles you gave & left us with.
