Linda Marigliano to replace Zane Rowe on Mornings.
Ben Harvey, Liam Stapleton and Brooke Boney will return to triple j Breakfast in 2018.
Gen Fricker will continue hanging out with Lewis Hobba on Drive until Veronica Milsom returns from maternity leave later in the year. This leaves an opening prime for the return of the Ratdog, Alex Dyson, as he fills in for Gen on Lunch for the first part of 2018.
Good Nights presenter Linda Marigliano steps up to Mornings, replacing Zan Rowe. In her new role Linda will have even more chances to exercise her encyclopaedic music knowledge every weekday, and hang out with everyone’s favourite science expert, Doctor Karl, each Thursday.
Linda Marigliano says “It’s been such a blast presenting new music in the evenings, getting those hot jams out there and winding those windows dowwnn!
“I feel so privileged to have had the opportunity to create this Good Nights beast six years ago, and oh boy it’s been a party every night.
But I love to shake things up, and I am honoured to follow on from my dear friend and legend Zan Rowe, bringing my true music nerd to triple j Mornings.”
In Linda’s place, Ballarat born and bred Bridget Hustwaite takes over Good Nights. Bridget has had a massive year regularly filling in on Lunch and Home & Hosed we’re proud to add her to our permanent weekday programming in 2018.
Dom Alessio is leaving Home & Hosed for an exciting new opportunity, to be announced next week. After regular spots presenting on triple j and triple j Unearthed in 2017, Declan Byrne steps up as the new host of Home & Hosed.
Karla Ranby will present Weekend Lunch, as Gemma Pike takes over presenting and producing The J Files on Double J.
Dylan Alcott will remain a triple j Breakfast regular, however he’ll leave Weekend Arvos at the end of the year to focus on his sporting career. Sally & Erica will step up to host Weekend Arvos in Dylan’s place.
Hannah Reilly will be leaving The Hook Up to focus on her other projects.
triple j’s 2017 regular programming will finish up on Sun 17 Dec, with the new 2018 line up beginning on Mon 8 Jan. In the meantime, Alex Dyson, Bridget Hustwaite, Ciaran Lyons and Sally & Erica will keep you company on your summer road trips as triple j’s official summer programming team.
