triple j presenter reshuffle as Veronica Milson returns, Alex Dyson departs
triple j‘s anticipated mid-year presenter reshuffle will take place next month, with Afternoons presenter Veronica Milsom returning from maternity leave.
Milsom rejoins Drive partner Lewis Hobba, in a reshuffle that sees Gen Fricker leave the slot and return to Lunch.
The latest edition of musical chairs at the station will see much-loved former Breakfast host Alex Dyson depart the station, ending his first stint at radio since wrapping up Breakfast with Matt Okine at the end of 2016.
“If I’d known that Gen joining the show would result in 9 months of non-stop savagery and lies about my character I would have flat-out refused to work with her,” said Lewis.
“But I’m so glad I didn’t because we’ve had so much fun on and off air and I’m excited that she’s going to keep popping by as a regular guest after 3pm to keep being a very funny pain in my arse”.
“I’m very grateful to have had the opportunity to meet the intellectual tone and high level of discussion of the triple j Drive show,” added Gen.
“Unfortunately, I didn’t take up that opportunity and will now live with the fact I spent the last nine months dumbing down the nation and spreading misinformation about Lewis. I regret nothing.”
Veronica and Lewis on Drive, and Gen Fricker on Lunch, will kick off on Monday July 23.
