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. Working at triple j has been effing amazing for two reasons – 1. The incredible people that work there and the awesome artists and guests that give their time and make it easy for us presenters and producers. And 2. The legendary listeners who make getting on air an absolute pleasure every time. For everyone who has sent in a text or come up and say gday on the street, I really appreciate it. I loved every second of it, and I’ll miss ya, but I’ll be seeing you soon.. Much love xx
Dylan was a regular guest and sports presenter on Breakfast with Ben and Liam, and on Weekend Arvos.
