“Ben & Liam crack me up,” said Ollie Wards, Triple J’s content director said in a statement. “They’re 23 and 20 but come to the radio with thousands of hours on air together and crazy amounts of fun ideas. They’ll be part of a broad new team, including an expanded News role with Brooke Boney, our voice of youth current affairs in the mornings.”

“Considering just two years ago I was listening to Triple J from a tractor on a dairy farm, I’m super stoked to have the opportunity to host Triple J Breakfast with my mate Liam,” Harvey said. “Even if he does wear the skinniest drain pipe jeans I’ve ever seen.”

“We’re both so unbelievably pumped to be joining Triple J,” added Stapleton.”It’s a radio station like no other. In Year Two I was cast as a rock in the Easter play so I really didn’t expect to be doing a national breakfast show at twenty.”
