Charlie Pickering Lands One Day A Week Brekkie Gig On ABC Radio

Comedian Charlie Pickering has nabbed a gig doing ABC’s Melbourne Breakfast radio on Fridays.

10’s former Project host, Pickering, will replace fellow comedian and mate Sammy J but only on Fridays.

Don’t panic, though! Sammy J will continue to do the Monday-Thursday breakfast shift.


The ABC reported that Sammy J said: “I’ve been doing a number of jobs, and I want to keep doing them all. This is a way of doing everything that I love doing.”

While Pickering said: “I grew up listening to 774 … to me, that’s the sound of Melbourne.  I’m really glad that I can throw my voice into the ring.”

ABC Radio’s Melbourne manager Dina Rosendorff tweeted her delight at the news and wrote: “Couldn’t be more pleased to welcome ⁦@charliepick  to our ⁦@abcmelbourne family.”

Pickering continues to host The Weekly on ABC and is heading back to network 10 next year on Would I Lie To You?
