Myf Warhurst is leaving Double J, as new presenters join the station
Following Zan Rowe’s move from triple j Mornings to Double J, Myf Warhurst has announced her departure from Double J Lunch.
Warhurst will move into a role at ABC Radio, and will continue to host her Double J podcast Bang On with Zan Rowe.
“It’s with a heavy heart that I’m leaving Double J Lunch”, Myf announced. “It was such an honour to be part of Double J right from the very beginning, with the bonus of being able to share some of the most lovingly and intelligently curated music you’ll hear anywhere in the world.
“Along the way I got to work with an extraordinary team whose vision made the station what it is, who quickly became my new musical family.
“So, like an old Aunty, I guarantee I’ll be back to annoy everyone at future family functions.”
The station also announced Tim Rogers will host a weekly radio show, Gemma Pike will host J Files and Hau Latukefu is taking over Sky High.
New shows are listed below:
2018 on Double J
LIQUID LUNCH with TIM ROGERS, 2-3 pm Fridays
Australia’s favourite raconteur Tim Rogers brings his curiosity about art, music and ideas together in a weekly show, giving you the chance to get inside the mind of one of the country’s most inspiring musicians. Given Rogers’ adept talent as a writer and actor, and his broad, in-depth knowledge of music, Liquid Lunch is the perfect way to unwind from an uptight week with loose conversation and unbeatable music.
SKY HIGH with HAU LATUKEFU, 5-8pm Fridays
Hau Latukefu takes over Sky High from Lance Ferguson in 2018, bringing his incredible programming skills, charisma, energy and music knowledge to your Friday nights. Expect music that makes you move – from hip hop, to soul, funk to groove, with everything in between.
ARVOS with TIM SHIEL, 3-7pm Monday – Thursday
Tim Shiel brings a sense of curiosity, wonder and fun to the radio. He’s one of the most loved music minds in the business – endlessly creative and always making lean-in radio you don’t want to miss a minute of. In addition to this exciting daily expansion of his role, Tim will continue to host his electronic music program Something More, on triple j, 11pm Sundays.
WEEKENDS with CAZ TRAN, 9am – 2pm Saturdays
Caz Tran is your weekend companion, bringing you music and in-depth stories, including her incredibly popular Classic Albums segment, where Caz looks back at a seminal record. Plus you can catch Double J’s Live at the Wireless encore, hearing the best live music from right now, as well as delving into over 40 years’ worth of our live music archives.
J FILES with GEMMA PIKE, Thursdays 8pm
Gemma Pike has spent the last seven years at triple j, building up her reputation as a trusted presenter, producer, music programmer and specialist. There’s not much Gemma doesn’t know about music and she brings that depth of knowledge to the J Files, our music history program and podcast, in 2018.
Also returning in 2018 are Karen Leng (2-3pm Mon-Thurs), Henry Wagons on The Tower of Song (8pm Mon), Stu Buchanan on Fat Planet (8pm Tues) and Richard Kingsmill on The Funhouse (6pm Sat, repeated 3pm Fri).
