Dan Anstey leaves Sea FM to join Marto and Margaux for Breakfast on Triple M Brisbane


“Six spectacular years” – that’s how 90.9 Sea FM Breakfast host Dan Anstey describes his time living in, working on, and loving the Gold Coast.

This morning on air, Anstey announced he’s waving the Gold Coast farewell and moving back home to Brisbane with his young family, to join Triple M Brisbane as anchor on Breakfast with Marto and Margaux from this Monday.

Anstey says said he was proudly taking his beloved ‘I❤GC’ personalised plates with him and his ibis tattoo (he’ll leave this as to which part is actually true) as constant reminders of the special place that Sea FM and the Gold Coast has in his heart.

“I arrived on the GC in 2016 with a packed lunch and a girlfriend. I’m leaving with a wife, two kids, and personalised plates that forever will remind me of the six spectacular years I’ve had here, and of sharing the breakfast studio with Bianca and Ben, two of the best in the business.”

Anstey has been co-hosting Sea FM 90.9’s Breakfast on the Gold Coast with Bianca Dye and Ben Hannant for six years and prior to that held on-air roles with The Fox in Melbourne and is a regular TV and event host, but today announced he will move back to his beloved Brisbane and call the Triple M studio his new home from 5.30am weekday mornings.

Triple M Brisbane Content Director, Jamie Angel says Anstey joining Breakfast was a no brainer.

“We searched the whole country to find the perfect Triple M Brisbane Breakfast anchor and it turned out he was sitting just down the road on the Goldie the whole time.”

“Dan’s dynamic, funny and a wonderful human being. He’s already worked on some of the Australia’s most successful radio shows, and we can’t wait for him to join the Triple M Brisbane family and settle in with Marto and Margaux for Breakfast.”

Sea FM Content Director Kim Czosnek says the Gold Coast had embraced Dan Anstey as one of their own from the moment he arrived.

“For a qualified electrical engineer, Dan makes a pretty fantastic radio host and we have been honoured to have him wake up the Gold Coast on Sea FM for six years. While we are saddened to see him leave, we know that his seat will not remain empty for very long. It is, after all, the hottest radio gig in the country… according to everyone at Sea FM that is!”

Czosnek says an announcement will be made soon on Anstey’s replacement.

Brisbanes absolute gain! Danstey is one of a kind. So intelligent and hilarious at the same time. A true talent!

I think it might be natural for JK to slot in wouldn’t it? As Dan’s replacement on the GC? Seeing he returned from anchoring Hughesy and Ed and lives on the Goldy!

Digby from MMM weekends would be an outstanding choice

The show was so competitive and really shook the ratings up. Congratulations to Dan but a shame for SCA Gold Coast.

JK is the best option.

Hopefully Sea gives someone from the pipeline a crack. It’s been the same people getting the same jobs forever.
