Nikolai Beilharz and Stacey Lee revealed as new ABC Radio Adelaide breakfast team
Nikolai Beilharz and Stacey Lee have been announced as the new breakfast line-up for ABC Radio Adelaide.
Both broadcasters are well-known to ABC audiences across South Australia with Beilharz having presented numerous regional programs over the past 15 years, including the SA edition of The Country Hour as well as appearing as a regular guest on Overnights; and Lee is a former SA political journalist and a regular contributor to ABC Radio Adelaide’s agenda-setting Spin Cycle.
ABC Adelaide Local Manager Graeme Bennett said the pairing would add a contemporary edge to a program that audiences have always trusted.
“We know that Adelaide expects us to do the job we’re here for and to do it in a way that reflects our town. Nikolai and Stacey will add positive energy and passion to what we do. They’re experienced and strongly committed to the ABC way and the place we live in.”
The pair replace Ali Clarke who quit the program unexpectedly at the end of the last year.
Regulars David Bevan, Sonya Feldhoff, Jules Schiller, Peter Goers, and Deb Tribe also return in 2022.
The station’s roving reporter for the past 11 years, Spence Denny will not be back after announcing his retirement after 33 years with the ABC.
“I told my manager I wanted to retire about 8 weeks ago… It has nothing to do with Ali’s resignation…”
The new breakfast team will start on-air on Friday 21 January.
