Marto, Margaux and Dan return for breakfast in 2023

Dan Anstey is back to stay in Brisbane, after joining Greg ‘Marto’ Martin and Margaux Parker in May last year from 90.9 Sea FM.

The qualified electrical engineer said he “couldn’t have been happier” to go home to Brisbane. 

“I spent some of the best years of my life in Brisbane,” said Dan.

“Mainly in the beer garden of the RE watching the mighty Lions, Broncos and Maroons, when I probably should have been studying!”

“I honestly couldn’t have been happier to be returning home after a decade, with my wife and two kids in tow. Standing atop Kangaroo Point to show them the sprawling beauty of the great brown snake was truly a life goal achieved.”

Before returning to Brisbane with his family, Anstey co-hosted Sea FM 90.9’s Breakfast on the Gold Coast with Bianca Dye and Ben Hannant for six years. Prior, Dan held on-air roles with The Fox in Melbourne and made regular appearances on national TV.

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

“Back in April and May, 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,” he said.

“Dan’s dynamic, funny and a wonderful human being. He’s already worked on some of the Australia’s most successful radio shows, and from the moment he walked into the Brisbane studio with Marto and Margaux, it was the perfect fit.” 

Anstey, his wife Clare and their two young children Halle and Augie now live in Tenerife while they look to buy. 

He said the highlight of the past few months at Triple M Brisbane was the ‘Plugga Cup’, the world’s richest open-toe foot race. “So, watch out for this event in 2023, we’re going to supercharge it. Possibly literally.”

Brisbane can wake up to Marto, Margaux and Dan on Triple M every weekday morning from 5.30am.
