triple j farewells Karla Ranby & welcomes new Weekend Lunch host Tyrone Pynor

After eight years at the station, triple j Weekend Lunch presenter Karla Ranby will be hosting her last show this weekend.  
Jumping into the hot seat is 22-year-old Tyrone Pynor, who says, “It is insanely surreal that I get to regularly hang out and talk about something I love so much, music. This little brown boy from Western Sydney never would’ve seen himself on a national stage like triple j, but since I’m here I plan on stepping into this role with strength, love and power for my other young POC dreamers.”   
Karla isn’t going far, stepping into an exciting new role as Diversity and Inclusion Lead across the ABC’s music networks, and will continue to produce and program triple j’s new First Nations show Blak Out.   
She says, “It’s been the honour of a lifetime to be a triple j presenter and I’m seriously going to miss being on-air speaking to the biggest legends in the country every weekend. But I’m just as excited to be a listener again, and to cheer on my mate who’s taking over! As a proud Gamilaroi girl from Moree, I’ve always tried to use my position for good, and in my new role I plan to work as hard as I can to keep carving out spaces and opportunities for staff and musicians from diverse backgrounds to have the success that they deserve.”  
In her new role, Karla will lead Diversity & Inclusion strategy, partnerships, content and campaigns across triple j, Double J, triple j Unearthed, ABC ClassicCountry and Jazz.
