Zan Rowe finishes up at Triple J after 13 years, moves to Double J

Triple J mornings host Zan Rowe has announced she will finish up on the station at the end of the year, to take up a new role at online digital station Double J.

Rowe will join Double J from Monday to Friday in 2018, offering up music recommendations, interviews and her Take 5 segment.

She will also become ABC’s music correspondent, which will see her interview artists on ABC News Breakfast and ‘The Mix’. ABC’s ‘Screen Time’ will also welcome Rowe as a panelist and her podcast with Myf Warhurst, Bang On, will continue in 2018.

Rowe first started presenting on Triple J in 2004 on the mid-dawn shift, before taking over weekend lunch in 2005. In 2007, she took up the mornings slot from Mel Bampton.

She said it was time for her new dream job at the digital radio station.

“Thirteen years ago, I found my dream job at Triple j and for the past 10 years I’ve been privileged to be the custodian of the Triple j Mornings show,” Rowe said.

“Triple J is an incredible, national community and the bond that lives between our audience and presenters is a rare gift. I’m so honoured to have been given the chance to discover and share my favourite music with you guys.

“As I close the door on this chapter, I open the next, and wander down the hallway to our sister station to kick off a brand new Mornings show. It’s time for a new dream job and I can’t wait to discover and share the best new music with you on Double J.”

Triple J will announce her replacement on Wednesday, as well as other new voices for Double J.
