Superstar Dylan Alcott will join the Hit Network’s national weekend breakfast show alongside Angus O’Loughlin and returning Hit weekend breakfast host Tanya Hennessy.
Dylan Alcott is a Paralympic gold and silver medallists and world champion across tennis and basketball. He founded his own charity to help young Aussies, who are struggling to come to terms with their disability, fulfil their potential and realise dreams. He runs a business, is a TV Presenter, best-selling author, social advocate and broadcaster.
Dylan said, “I am really excited to be joining the SCA and Hit Network family. I am incredibly passionate about being able to use the medium of radio to reach out to and have fun with a broad range of Australians. It’s a personal and engaging medium and I love it! I see this move to the Hit Network as a great opportunity to work with two outstanding talents in Tanya and Angus and can’t wait to get on air with the team following my 2019 Australian Open tennis campaign.”
The Hit Network is excited to welcome back Tanya Hennessy to weekend breakfast in 2019. Tanya is loved for her hilarious and relatable content on YouTube and Facebook with over 1 million followers and last year took out Best Entertainment Presenter at the ACRA’s. She also released her first book Am I Doing this Right?, an encyclopedia of life lessons that Tanya has learned so that you don't have to, and added best-selling author to her repertoire.
Angus O’Loughlin joins weekend breakfast after almost two year’s co-hosting hit107 breakfast in Adelaide. Prior to this, Angus was entertaining the Hit Network’s national night’s audience for four years. Angus is a down-right radio nerd and is not afraid to reveal awfully personal things about his life, has a full celebrity phone book and fresh take on music and entertainment. Angus will continue to host the Trending 20 music count down with Ash London on Saturday nights.
The Hit Network’s Head of Content, Gemma Fordham, said, “I’ve been keen to get Dylan in the Hit family for some time now – finally he said yes! Dylan is a sensational broadcaster and all-round brilliant guy. I’m really excited about this show and I believe Australia will love waking up with Dylan, Tanya and Angus every weekend.”
Weekend breakfast with Dylan, Tanya and Angus 7am – 9am on The Hit Network.
