2Day FM has a new workday announcer

Staff Writer

Jaben Ryan will replace Ellie Angel-Mobbs as 2Day FM’s afternoon announcer slash operations, from Thursday 6 April.

Jaben’s new gig is a return of sorts; he began his career on the SCA-owned Hit Network at Sea FM driving the street team cars on the Central Coast.

Since then, he’s worked in many markets, including Darwin and Geelong. In 2011 he joined Nova, working in Adelaide, Sydney and Melbourne, covering workday shifts, network music shows and also filled in on drive.

Last week it was confirmed that Ellie would step down from her 2Day FM workday gig after eight consecutive years, but she’s not leaving the station altogether.

Ellie told Radio Today that she is still working at 2Day FM in a new content assistant and producer role. She will also cover a weekend shift on-air in addition to her new duties.

Ellie’s eight years means she holds the record for the longest-serving workday announcer at the Sydney station.

Longest-serving workday announcer at 2Day? I think Ron E Sparks and/or Keith Williams might have something to say about that.

Great work to Jaben. What is Nova’s loss is Hits gain. Will kills them.

Ron E & Keith were on drive shifts during their time at 2Day not just workday. They would win the reigns of longest standing announcers with the station. Great work by them! Ellie has only been onair between 9am-4pm in workday. A mighty achievement considering all the changes the station has been thru all of the years.

So this has 5.6 million views does it? I know Jaben is popular but gee whiz.
