Southern Cross Austereo’s Hit Network has announced that Rebecca Morse and Andrew Costello will become its new breakfast radio hosts in Adelaide from 2019.
The Bec and Cosi show will take to hit107 airwaves on 21 January 2019. It replaces Amos, Cat & Angus, which finishes up tomorrow.
Presenting Network Ten’s Adelaide news bulletin for over a decade now, Morse has forged her way as both as an award-winning journalist and presenter, and is familiar with radio, having worked at SAFM back in 2012.
Morse is also no stranger to radio, having earned his reputation on SAFM and Triple M. The Adelaidean is currently in his sixth season of hosting SA’s only travel show, South Aussie with Cosi, on Channel 9.
Morse and Costello will be joined by Hayden “Haydo” Naughton, who will jump ship from Triple M Adelaide to anchor the show.
Hit Network’s head of content, Gemma Fordham, said: “It’s with great excitement that we welcome both Bec and Cosi back to radio.
“Together, they bring many years of experience and are truly passionate about Adelaide and Adelaideans. Having heard the show off air, I can guarantee it’s a show people will love listening to – it’s fun, cheeky, relatable and really puts a smile on your face.
“The chemistry between Bec and Cosi is infectious and we look forward to the show starting in January.”
