Ryan Jon and Tanya Hennessy will host Sydney’s Saturday breakfast, commencing Saturday January 28, in addition to co-hosting their weekday breakfast show on Canberra’s hit104.7.
A regular contributor to news.com.au, Tanya started life as an actor, dabbled in comedy, and now works in breakfast radio. She recently campaigned for adults to be able to order children’s meals in cafes and pubs, loves comedy, sitting down and grated cheese.
Ryan played volleyball for Australia and had a season with a US college before completing an honours degree in finance and going on to advise Australia’s richest people on their finances. Seriously!
After breaking all his bones and burning his white collar, Ryan a keen podcaster and video maker wrote and produced a short film that premiered 2011 Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
He’s since done breakfast radio for several years and is pumped to be working with his old mate Tanya six days a week.
Melbourne – Will and Woody

The bromance that brews between funny guy Woody and self-proclaimed genius Will is filled with laughs, energy and every kind of crazy!
