Southern Cross Austereo has announced that Dylan Alcott will join the Hit Network’s national weekend breakfast show alongside Angus O’Loughlin and returning weekend breakfast host Tanya Hennessy.

Alcott is a Paralympic gold and silver medallist, and world champion across tennis and basketball. He also co-hosts ABC TV program The Set, and was formerly a host on Triple J.

O’Loughlin joins the Hit Network’s national weekend breakfast line-up after almost two year’s co-hosting hit107 breakfast in Adelaide.

Prior to this, O’Loughlin was entertaining the Hit Network’s national evening audience for four years. He will continue to host the Trending 20 music countdown with Ash London on Saturday nights.

The Hit Network’s head of content, Gemma Fordham, said: “I’ve been keen to get Dylan in the Hit family for some time now – finally, he said yes!

“Dylan is a sensational broadcaster and all-round brilliant guy. I’m really excited about this show and I believe Australia will love waking up with Dylan, Tanya and Angus every weekend.”

Commenting on his new role, Alcott said: “I am really excited to be joining the SCA and Hit Network family. I am incredibly passionate about being able to use the medium of radio to reach out to and have fun with a broad range of Australians.

“It’s a personal and engaging medium and I love it. I see this move to the Hit Network as a great opportunity to work with two outstanding talents in Tanya and Angus and can’t wait to get on air with the team following my 2019 Australian Open tennis campaign.”
