Former Triple J presenter Myf Warhurst will be the first presenter to host a show as the ABC rebrands digital station Dig to Double J on April 30.

ABC Radio announced in October, it would rebrand its digital music station Dig Music as Double J to align it with sister station Triple J and win over music listeners in their 30s and 40s who used to listen to Triple J but have since grown out of the station.

Warhurst, who presented a show on Triple J and was a team captain on ABC1 show Spicks and Specks, will host a daily music show from 11am to 3pm on weekdays  on Double J.

She will reveal the full lineup of programs, presenters, on air and digital content of the new Double J website when she goes on air at midday on Wednesday, April 30.

Kate Dundas, director of ABC Radio, said: “One of the best things any of us working in the media can do is to deliver something that audiences genuinely want. We recognise people want to stay connected to music and discover new artists as they go through life – that’s the simple aim of Double J.”

Warhurst added: “It’s a brand new platform where music lovers, like me, can discover new music and enjoy some old faves as well. I can’t wait to be a part of that.”
