The replacement team for Matt & Alex on Triple J’s breakfast program has been announced: South Australian’s Ben Harvey and Liam Stapleton. The boys currently host the breakfast show at Fresh FM in Adelaide.
Triple J have also announced journalist Brooke Boney as its new voice of current affairs. There will also be regular weekly guests, Australian Paralympian of the Year Dylan Alcott and Triple J weekend arvos co-host Gen Fricker.
“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.”
