2Day FM will launch a new breakfast show in 2021 with Dave Hughes, Ed Kavalee and Erin Molan to take on one of the most difficult tasks in Sydney radio, bringing 2Day back from the ratings doldrums.
Dave Hughes said: “My inbox is already full of DM’s from Sydney real estate agents. Look, I can’t buy all of them but I’ll have a crack! Until then I will be staying in Kyle Sandilands’ pool house. In all seriousness, I have a ball working with Ed and I’m super pumped to be working with Erin. This is going to be a blast. From 10am every day you will find me at the Bondi outdoor gym busting shirtless workouts until my manboobs get rock hard!”
Ed Kavalee added: “I’m fired up to continue working with Hughesy and excited about teaming up with Erin. We have a show ready to roll that I know will deliver the fun Sydney needs in 2021.”
Erin Molan said: “To be trusted with this role is a huge honour and I can’t wait to embark on this new adventure with two of Australia’s comedy greats. Anyone who has listened to me on radio or watched me on TV over the past few years would be surprised that I’ve been brought into the fold as the ‘sensible one’. I was equally as amused and made sure to sign very quickly before anyone discovers I’m anything but…”
SCA Chief Content Officer, Dave Cameron, said: “We’re lucky to have a brilliantly hilarious and established show sitting in our fold that Sydney already knows and loves and is ready to hit the ground running in 2021. Hughesy had the number one drive show in Sydney for many years and collectively the crew are all trusted, strong performers in our target market.
“In bringing back a headline breakfast show again to 2Day, it was critical for us to deliver the combination of established chemistry, familiarity, existing high passion for our talent, deep breakfast radio experience and, most importantly, a show focussed completely on Sydney every morning. The 2DayFM Morning Crew with Hughesy, Ed and Erin will bring a clever wit with a show that’s already at the top of its game. We can’t wait to make strong inroads and get 2Day pumping again.”
Head of the Hit Network, Gemma Fordham, added: “Hughesy and Ed have a chemistry and shorthand that can’t be faked, and our listeners connect to their candour about their lives, kids, relationships and pop culture. Erin is an impressive broadcaster who possesses the rare mix of fun and clout. We will continue to build on a roster of regular guests to bring the 2DayFM Morning Crew to life and we know Sydney will be excited by this show in 2021 – a genuinely funny show to start the day, alongside our emotive ‘feel great’ music format.”
The team will begin on Monday 18th January with an hour of Hughesy, Ed and Erin’s show will be broadcast nationally across the Hit Network at 6pm.
