Family Feud host Grant Denyer will join Em Rusciano and Ed Kavalee on Sydney’s 2Day FM breakfast show in 2018, SCA’s Hit Network has announced.
Rusciano had her last show for the year last Friday (December 1) with outgoing co-host Harley Breen. Kavalee was named as Breen’s replacement at the start of November.
Hit Network’s Head of Content Gemma Fordham said: “I am thrilled Grant will be joining the Sydney breakfast show. He is one of the country’s most energetic personalities and was a dynamo on breakfast TV and reshaped the landscape. When it comes to entertaining Aussies his instincts are spot on and I know he is the perfect addition to brighten up Sydney’s morning alongside Em and Ed.”
Em Rusciano said: “I’m delighted to have the blonde bombshell, glamorous bogan and Australia’s best friend, Grant Denyer, join our show”
Ed Kavalee said: “Grant is a fantastic talent and broadcaster. He’s one of the biggest names in Australian showbiz (that’s not a short joke). We have a brand new microphone and booster seat ready to go (that was a short joke).”
On joining the show, Grant Denyer said: “I’m told breakfast radio is even more dangerous than race car driving and I fractured my bum and almost died doing that this year… So, what could go wrong! I won’t need the booster seat Ed because it’s in my contract I get to sit on your knee. PS. I’ve already got dibs on driving our Mardi Gras float. Their lap times are ridiculous “
2DayFM breakfast with Em, Grant and Ed will be on air from January 15.
