Former Assistant Editor

triple j presenter Dylan Alcott is taking a break from radio in 2019.

Dylan is preparing to compete at the Paralympics in Tokyo, 2020, and told triple listeners on Wednesday that he’ll be taking some time off to hone his preparation.

“After what has been an awesome two years, it’s with a heavy heart to announce that I won’t be returning to triple j on a regular basis in 2019,” he confirmed on Instagram.

Dylan has previously represented Australia at the Paralympics in wheelchair basketball and wheelchair tennis.

He won a gold medal in basketball at the age of 17, and won gold medals in the Men’s Quad Singles and Doubles tennis in 2016.

He’s won the Australian Open wheelchair tennis title for the last four years running and the US Open twice.

Dylan was a regular guest and sports presenter on Breakfast with Ben and Liam, and on Weekend Arvos.

He has been with the public broadcaster since 2017 and recently began hosting new ABC Music TV show The Set.
