    chatterbox ( this incorporates your two essential criteria: incessant talk + talking boring trivia)

    'windbag' is less relevant :a person who talks at length but says little of value.

    'gasbag': a person who talks too much, typically about unimportant things.

    Note re 'blabbermouth' : there is the implied reference to 'talking too much' because they have obviously said 'too much' and revealed some information that should not have done. A person who talks carelessly, often telling secrets to other people.

    Wow, that's surprised me.

    Perhaps, talkative (but I think this word is plain and does not contain negative meaning)...

    that's a good one... But I think it is suitable for formal context such as academic writing.
