Hughesy goes off the air

Staff Writer

Dave 'Hughesy' Hughes has quit his role as co-host of The Project on Network TEN. Hughesy, who last week ended his highly successful run on Nova 100's Breakfast show after over a decade, will focus on his stand-up career.

Hughesy commented;

"I've been banging on about doing a proper national stand-up tour for years and if I don't do it now before my kids start school, I never will. I will still pop up on the show from the road on a weekly basis whether they like it or not."

Replacing Hughesy on The Project will be Pete Helliar, who commences in his new role in January.

Helliar said: "I've had the pleasure of filling in for Hughesy in 2013 and now, after getting over the disappointment of missing out on the So You Think You Can Dance Australia hosting gig, I'm incredibly proud to be joining Carrie and Charlie on The Project in 2014"

"I look forward to covering everything from Royal Commissions to Justin Bieber's latest stripper/graffiti/pet-monkey adventures, often in the same show, sometimes in the same story."
