Radio

In 1999 McManus was a regular host on Triple J radio. He had a segment on the breakfast show (starring Wil Anderson and Adam Spencer) on Friday mornings, "Know Your Millennium", a quiz show that looked into the past. In 2000 he filled in on 2MMM's Andrew Denton Breakfast Show with co-host Amanda Keller and Mike Fitzpatrick. In 2002 the Austereo radio network commissioned Roving Enterprises to create a weekly radio program. Starring McManus alongside regular "Rove" colleagues Peter Helliar and Corinne Grant, the show was originally called "Saturday Morning Rove". Broadcast from Fox FM every Saturday from 10am to midday, it was pre-recorded the day before to allow the performers to have a full weekend of other media commitments. In 2004 the program moved to Friday mornings allowing live phone callers, and was re-titled "Rove Live Radio". It was discontinued at the end of 2004. McManus has been a guest co-host on the Triple M radio program "Get This". In 2006, McManus and Helliar filled in for Merrick and Rosso while they were holidays. In the first week of their three week stint Meshel Laurie of Nova 106.9 co-hosted the show as well.
