On his dual role for the ABC Dan said: “These are two incredible opportunities and I appreciate the chance to join the experienced ABC Canberra team,” he said. “I can’t wait to explore the stories which are affecting 666 ABC Canberra listeners as they are starting the day, and talk through the matters that are most important to them.
“I’m also looking forward to joining Canberrans at the other end of the day – presenting the news of the day in the ACT, around the nation, and across the globe.”
From 16 January, Laura Tchilinguirian will take over as presenter of the 666 Afternoons program, following the announcement of Alex Sloan’s retirement.
