Danny Lakey joins Maz on Hit Breakfast in 2022

Hit NSW Breakfast will welcome Danny Lakey to the Morning show with Maz Compton in 2022.

Danny is coming in to replace Daniel ‘Gawndy’ Gawned after Gawndy announced he would be leaving the show at the end of the year.

Hit NSW Breakfast with Maz & Lakey will go to air from January 17, 2022 and see Lakey swap his night shifts on Triple M weekdays for early rises.

Lakey got his start with the Hit Network at the Gold Coasts 90.9 Sea FM before doing the national tour.

Moving from 92.9 Perth to Star 106.3 Townsville in the early days, before Breakfast shows in Gladstone, Sydney and Melbourne – covering just about every shift with Hit.

Since adjusting his body clock to the 7-10pm slot at Triple M, Lakey will need to set two alarms for mornings next year.

“After a dream run of not needing to wake up until 10am, it’s time to put on my breakfast radio pants on again,” said Lakey.

“I’m so excited to get stuck into 2022 with Maz, the whole Hit NSW Breakfast team and most importantly, the listeners. Finally, there will be no more sneaking around the Triple M office pretending that I don’t cry to Adele songs in my spare time… bring on next year!”

Maz will be keeping the tradition of co-hosting with Dan’s running despite losing Gawndy.

“In keeping with my contractual obligation to only ever work with co-hosts named Dan, I am over the moon to team up with Danny Lakey for breakfast in 2022.

“Lakey is wild and wonderful, I can’t wait to wake up all of NSW with such a character. He brings to breakfast radio a wealth of experience and, I have no doubt, some insane ideas. Bring on 2022!”

SCA Head of Content – Regional, Blair Woodcock is excited to welcome Danny back to the Hit Network. “He’s funny, super creative and unpredictable. Danny has done some brilliant work on Triple M Nights, and we are thrilled to have him promoted to the Breakfast show for Hit NSW.  To have him on the air every morning with Maz is going to be amazing.”

“There is a very talented team behind this show who will create something fresh and electrifying for all of regional NSW to wake up to. Personally, I can’t wait for the fun and laughs to start in mid-January!”

Listen to Maz & Lakey on Hit NSW Breakfast from January 17 2022.

Well done Lakey! A super creative bloke, it’ll be nice to see his hard work in the breakfast slot. What a great duo.

Night radio VS breakfast radio covering a state. I know which I’d pick.

A great talent now moves on from a great show. The man has his reasons, and for that, huge respect to him.
Back in the day of the ol’ transistor radio, when a DJ goes, that was it.
I’ll be up at 5.45 am warming up the Listnr App.
