Lewis joined Nova 100 in Melbourne in 2006, and jumped across to the Adelaide breakfast show in 2012.

He said he was looking forward to spending more time with his family back in Melbourne.

“I’ve been blessed to have been with Nova for 13 years. I’ve worked with some beautiful people who have become life-long friends,” he said. “I’ve had the opportunity to become supreme at my job and I’ve become more handsome with age.

“Now, I look forward to spending more time with my family back in Melbourne and sleeping in. I also look forward to seeing what the next exciting chapter will be in my career. I think I’ll be a rockstar for a while. Watch this space. Love you. Dylan.”

Paul Jackson, group program director for Nova Entertainment, thanked Lewis.

“Dylan has had a great career with the Nova Network over the past 13 years. We would like to thank him for his passion and contribution during this time with the network and wish him well for the future.”
