Sami Lukis is the new voice on Mix106.5 drive as Becks quits Ant & Becks show

Sami Lukis

Anthony "Becks" Toohey

ARN has announced late this evening that the former co-host of Triple M breakfast show The Grill Sami Lukis is to share the drive time slot on Sydney’s Mix106.5 and Melbourne’s Mix101.1 with Ant Simpson.

Lukis replaces Anthony “Becks” Toohey, who has just quit as co-host after a two-year stint on the Ant and Becks drive show.

According to a statement from ARN, “Becks has made this decision in order to pursue opportunities overseas.”

ARN national content director Duncan Campbell said in a press release:

We are excited to welcome Sami Lukis to Mix and look forward to her working with Ant on drive in Sydney and Melbourne. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Becks for the work he has put in since he began with Mix in 2010 and wish him every success in his future career endeavours.

The new act will be named The Ant & Sami Lukis show. It goes to air on Monday 16 April.

  8. I loved listening to Ant and Becks and will miss the combination. I don’t mind Sammy but she seems a little awkward. Hopefully that will disappear with time. I do love that they are both single and focus a fair bit on the dating world for 20- 30 somethings. Good luck to them.

  14. Loved Ant and Becks combo. Don’t listen to station in the morning anymore due to ladies show being annoying. When Sami and Ant play clips, I again change stations. Please keep your show separate from morning show or will change completely. Good Luck
