As previously announced, Sally & Erica will head up triple JBreakfast in 2020. Taking over their slot on Weekend Arvos will be Bryce Mills (far right in photo).
Triple J’s 2020 presenter line-up will start their new programs in January.
Commenting on her new role, Smith said: “I’m so unbelievably excited to spend each weekday flexing my music muscle and diving a little deeper into the tunes you’re hearing on triple J, plus the stories from the artists behind them. Mornings is a music lover’s haven, and it’s an honour to follow in the footsteps of two of my broadcast heroes Linda Marigliano and Zan Rowe.”
Woodhead, who started performing stand-up at 16 years old before scoring writing and acting gigs on ABC’sBlack Comedy, Get Krack!n and upcoming ABC/NITV Indigenous children’s show Thalu, said: “I’m looking forward to joining the triple j fam, spinning the best tunes and playing ‘Treaty’ by Yothu Yindi at every possible opportunity.”
Dias added: “When I was a teenager, I’d write cheesy lines in my diary about how obsessed I was with triple j and wanting to be on the station. I’ve grown up with Hack. It’s guided me through life, taught me what I should know about the world, and in many ways made me the person I am today. So, you can imagine how proud and excited I am to be taking over the only show in Australia which always puts young people at the front and centre of every conversation.”
