The appointment follows the announcement last month that Tom Ballard and Alex Dyson, currently presenters of the weekend breakfast show, would move to the weekday shift, replacing The Doctor, Robbie Buck and Marieke Hardy.

Buck is moving to the ABC’s 702 in Sydney, while Hardy is leaving the radio station.

The drive time show airs from 3pm to 5.30pm weekdays. The Doctor will replace Scott Dooley who is leaving the station.

Hardy said that she would instead focus on her writing and is currently developing a six-part series with ABC1. She will also be working with Andrew Denton’s team on the second 30 Seconds TV series and continue with ABC1’s First Tuesday Book Club.

The incoming breakfast hosts 19-year-old Ballard and and 21-year-old Dyson are believed to be one of the youngest breakfast teams in the country.
