Woody and Tubes replace Brian Carlton on Triple M Hobart Breakfast

Esther “Woody” Nichols and Andy “Tubes” Taylor are the new breakfast hosts on Hobart’s 107.3 Triple M.

Triple M Breakfast with Woody & Tubes will pair this Tasmanian born duo for the first time, promising “a true Hobart flavour and passion.”

Esther “Woody” Nichols is familiar to Hobart audiences from her role in one of Hobart radio’s most successful radio duos, The Paul and Woody Show from 2013 -2017 on Hit100.9.

Having majored in journalism and international relations, Woody started her career producing the radio show Charles Wooley Across Australia which was broadcast nationally from Hobart studios for two years in the mid-2000’s. The journey for Woody later led to a workday music shift, followed by breakfast radio before nearly being eaten by a Hyena in the wilds of Africa.

Returning to the Hobartian airwaves, Woody says: “Getting back into the studio will be a great distraction for my current and severe Hobart e-scooter addiction! As a sixth generation Tassie gal, I’m beyond excited to have the opportunity to help create a show truly about Hobart, with Hobart, and for Hobart.”

The path to breakfast radio is vastly different for Andy “Tubes” Taylor who is taking on his first fulltime radio gig.

Tubes is a high profile Hobart personality, who, amongst other things, is sales manager for a jam and sauce company which he part owns, and once stood for local government.

He  has previously been heard on ABC Hobart and commentating on streaming services for the Sheffield Shield, Women’s National Cricket League and Marsh Cup for the Tasmanian Tigers.

“I’m excited to be paired with Woody to start Hobart’s day, we live in the best place in the world and I can’t think of anywhere better to raise my young family,” says Tubes.

Triple M Hobart Content Director Phil Bradley says: “Triple M Breakfast with Woody & Tubes will not only deliver a fun way to greet the day in Hobart, but promises to spotlight the best of what Hobart has to offer, from small businesses to local entertainment, sport and the arts.

“Woody & Tubes will tackle the biggest issues of the day, speak to Hobart’s politicians about what matters most to locals and undoubtedly give Hobart the latest community news, best events, music, laughs and giveaways available nowhere else.”

They begin on air 6-9am from Tuesday March 15, after the Tasmanian public holiday. They replace former presenter Brian Carlton.
