Sally & Erica leave triple j

Sally & Erica will wrap up on triple j Breakfast to pursue other opportunities after four years with the station.

Sally & Erica began hosting overnight shifts on triple j in 2017, and it wasn’t long before they earned a spot hosting Weekend Arvos in 2018, while also doing fill-in shifts on triple j Drive, Good Nights, the Hip Hop Show and Summer Arvos.
When Ben & Liam left the station to return to Adelaide, Sally & Erica made the move into breakfast and the audience instantly warmed to their unique authenticity, sharing hilarious stories while also working through challenging issues affecting young people.  
Over the last year, they have brought us a rap-medley honouring the hottest female-led songs of the decade for International Women’s Day, went viral on TikTok to a famous Scomo speech, got deep with Kevin Parker when Tame Impala placed #1 in the Hottest 100 of the Decade and spruced up your disgusting cars with a triple j air freshener.

Sally says of her time at triple j “I’m so incredibly grateful to have spent the last four years as part of Australia’s biggest family of music lovers. It’s been a wild ride – from a one-off guest slot with Matt & Alex to taking the reins of Breakfast ourselves. I’ve had so many pinch-myself moments, but the most amazing part of my time at triple j has been the audience. triple j listeners never fail to make me cackle, warm my heart and inspire me. I’ve loved waking up with you every morning – thank you for everything. I can’t wait to show you what’s next!”

Erica adds “The weird thing about listening to triple j is that it makes you feel like you have tens of thousands of friends. That’s exactly how I’ve felt for the last four years, being lucky enough to hear from you. Whether it’s just a song request on the text line, a call in to say hey, a story about your weekend or a dumb thing you did as a kid, I’ve loved every minute of the crazy, passionate energy that comes from the triple j audience. Thank you for everything. It’s time for me to hang up the headphones for now and focus on other things (a little later in the day than 6am). I’ll catch you very soon

Hosting triple j Breakfast for the remainder of this year will be Bryce Mills, who has been presenting Weekend Arvos since the start of 2020.

Stay tuned to hear who will take over triple j Breakfast in 2021.
