Sally & Erica have announced they'll be leaving triple j after four huge years at the station, and we're so sad to see them go.
They've spent the last year hosting triple j breakfast, taking over from Ben & Liam who finished up at the end of last year, and have captured the hearts of Australia (including ours).
They've hosted a range of shows at triple j, including Weekend Arvos, as well as filling in on triple j Drive, Good Nights, the Hip Hop Show and Summer Arvos.
They're leaving to pursue other projects (they're also hip-hop duo Coda Conduct), and we can't wait to see what they get up to next. They've been the personal connection we needed in 2020, and we couldn't be more grateful.
Speaking about her time with triple j, Sally says, “I'm so incredibly grateful to have spent the last four years as part of Australia's biggest family of music lovers. It's been a wild ride - from a one-off guest slot with Matt & Alex to taking the reins of Breakfast ourselves.
"I've had so many pinch-myself moments, but the most amazing part of my time at triple j has been the audience. triple j listeners never fail to make me cackle, warm my heart and inspire me. I've loved waking up with you every morning - thank you for everything. I can't wait to show you what's next!”
Erica agreed completely, saying, “The weird thing about listening to triple j is that it makes you feel like you have tens of thousands of friends. That’s exactly how I’ve felt for the last four years, being lucky enough to hear from you.
"Whether it’s just a song request on the text line, a call in to say hey, a story about your weekend or a dumb thing you did as a kid, I’ve loved every minute of the crazy, passionate energy that comes from the triple j audience. Thank you for everything. It’s time for me to hang up the headphones for now and focus on other things (a little later in the day than 6am). I’ll catch you very soon!”
For the rest of the year, triple j Breakfast will be in safe hands, with Bryce Mills set to fill Sally & Erica's seat. Triple j haven't announced who'll be taking over from them in 2021 just yet, but stay tuned.
