Triple J breakfast confirms Bryce Mills and Ebony Boadu

Triple J has confirmed its new breakfast lineup, announcing that Bryce Mills and Ebony Boadu will take the reins from 2021.

Bryce and Ebony will replace the recently departed Sally and Erica, who left Triple J suddenly this month, after spending less than a year in the high-profile, national breakfast slot.

Bryce and Ebony are the new faces of Triple J breakfast

26-year-old Mills has been the host of weekend arvos in 2020, and is currently hosting the Triple J summer breakfast show.

He got his start in radio on community radio station 2SER, and his meteoric rise at Triple J started in 2018 answering the phone on the front desk.

He is also a stand-up comedian, having sold-out shows at festivals including Sydney Comedy and Sydney Fringe. Mills also hosts a weekly podcast God Is Dead

Boadu, meanwhile, moves from her spot as the host of Saturday night program House Party, where she has spent the past two years.

The 25-year-old broke through hosting music shows on FBi Sydney, as well as MTV and SBS.

The pair have spent several stints filling in for Sally and Erica on breakfast in 2020 as well, and are already familiar to listeners ahead of joining the breakfast show.

Mills said the gig is a dream come true, and he was “…in high school when I decided that I wanted to one day host Triple J Breakfast…”

“It was pretty arrogant of me to make that declaration during math class with absolutely no idea how I’d get to Triple J, but here we are!

“I can’t tell you how proud and excited I am to start this new role and get to know Triple J listeners on an even deeper level.”

Boadu said she is keen to wake up with Triple J listeners each day.

“Over the past two years I’ve had the most incredible time spending my Saturday nights DJing and partying with people all over the country!

“I’ve been so humbled and grateful for that opportunity alone, but to now be able to wake up with Triple J listeners and hang out every single day in my dream workplace is still something I’m trying to fully process.”

Sally and Erica departed Triple J suddenly this month

The Triple J breakfast slot has acted as a launchpad for talented young Australian broadcasters for years now.

Before Sally and Erica’s year-long stint in the slot, it was occupied by Ben Harvey and Liam Stapleton who went on to secure a gig at Nova Adelaide (and are currently hosting Nova summer breakfast across the east coast of Australia).

They followed Matt Okine and Alex Dyson, who host the popular SCA podcast All Day Breakfast among other high-profile media projects.

Others to have used the platform to move onto big things in Aussie media include Tom Ballard, Robbie Buck, Tom Dooley, Myf Warhurst, Wil Anderson, Adam Spencer, Helen Razer and many more, while Merrick and Rosso became one of commercial radio’s most successful breakfast shows on Nova after their days on Triple J drive.

In its breakfast announcement, Triple J said other than to reveal Mills and Boadu’s replacements on weekend afternoons and House Party, there will be “no other major line-up changes to major programs” coming for next year.
