It’s set to be a rather bittersweet few days on triple j this week, with the announcement that as Veronica Milsom prepares to return to the airwaves, Alex Dyson is set to bid us goodbye once again.
You might recall how late last year, triple j announced there was set to be a bit of a shake-up in regards to presenters for a few months with triple j Drive co-host Veronica Milsom heading off on maternity leave. Well, now things are set to return to how they once were, with the first of these changes occurring this Friday.
As triple j notes, Veronica Milson is set to return to her rightful place alongside Lewis Hobba on July 23rd, after a few months away from the game. “I can’t wait to be back at triple j,” explained Milsom. “For me, the sooner I exchange baby spew rags for tune rags the better.”
Of course, with Veronica back on deck, this means that her Drive replacement Gen Fricker will be heading back to her old spot at Lunch, keeping listeners company from 12pm to 3pm each weekday.
“I’m very grateful to have had the opportunity to meet the intellectual tone and high level of discussion of the triple j Drive show,” Fricker explained. “Unfortunately, I didn’t take up that opportunity and will now live with the fact I spent the last nine months dumbing down the nation and spreading misinformation about Lewis. I regret nothing.”
