For a qualified electrical engineer, Dan Anstey makes a pretty fantastic radio host, which is excellent news as he is set to join Triple M Brisbane as anchor on Breakfast with Marto and Margaux from this Monday, May 30.
Anstey has been co-hosting Sea FM 90.9’s Breakfast on the Gold Coast with Bianca Dye and Ben Hannant for six years and prior to that held on-air roles with The Fox in Melbourne and is a regular TV and event host, but today announced he will move back to his beloved Brisbane and call the Triple M studio his new home from 5.30am weekday mornings.
Triple M Brisbane content director, Jamie Angel said Anstey joining Breakfast was a no brainer.
“We searched the whole country to find the perfect Triple M Brisbane Breakfast anchor and it turned out he was sitting just down the road on the Goldie the whole time,” he said. “Dan’s dynamic, funny and a wonderful human being. He’s already worked on some of the Australia’s most successful radio shows, and we can’t wait for him to join the Triple M Brisbane family and settle in with Marto and Margaux for Breakfast.”
Anstey said after six spectacular years on Gold Coast breakfast radio, he was thrilled to be returning home to Brisbane.
“I spent some of the best years of my life in Brisbane. Mainly in the beer garden of the RE watching the mighty Lions, Broncos and Maroons, when I probably should have been studying! I honestly couldn’t be happier to be returning home after a decade, with my wife and two kids in tow. Standing atop Kangaroo Point to show them the sprawling beauty of the great brown snake will truly be a life goal achieved,” he said.
Anstey, his wife Clare and their two young children Halle and Augie will move to Brisbane, with Dan in the Triple M studio on Monday 30 May with Marto and Margaux.
