Grant Denyer will join Em Rusciano and Ed Kavalee on 2Day FM Breakfast in 2018
2Day FM’s new 2018 breakfast show is complete, with the network revealing today that Grant Denyer is set to join Em Rusciano and Ed Kavalee next year.
This latest revelation comes just over a month after Kavalee was announced to replace Rusicano’s 2017 co-host Harley Breen.
Family Feud host Denyer will undoubtedly add some unpredictability and energy to what is already shaping up as one of the country’s most anticipated radio shows for the coming year.
“I am thrilled Grant will be joining the Sydney breakfast show,” said Hit Network head of content Gemma Fordham. “He is one of the country’s most energetic personalities and was a dynamo on breakfast TV and reshaped the landscape.
“When it comes to entertaining Aussies his instincts are spot on and I know he is the perfect addition to brighten up Sydney’s morning alongside Em and Ed.”
“I’m told breakfast radio is even more dangerous than race car driving and I fractured my bum and almost died doing that this year….so, what could go wrong!!!” said Denyer.
2Day FM lost the Kyle and Jackie O breakfast show at the end of 2013, it’s since had a number of attempts to regain its market position. First with Merrick Watts, Jules Lund and Sophie Monk (with and without Mel B). SCA then tried with Dan and Maz in 2015, but were dumped for Rove and Sam who abruptly ended their stint in 2016.
“I’m delighted to have the blonde bombshell, glamorous bogan and Australia’s best friend, Grant Denyer, join our show,” said Rusciano.
“Grant is a fantastic talent and broadcaster. He’s one of the biggest names in Australian showbiz (that’s not a short joke),” added Kavalee. “We have a brand-new microphone and booster seat ready to go (that was a short joke).”
2Day FM breakfast with Em Rusciano, Ed Kavalee and Grant Denyer will kick off on January 15.
