2Day FM has a new workday announcer
Jaben Ryan will replace Ellie Angel-Mobbs as 2Day FM’s afternoon announcer slash operations, from Thursday 6 April.
Jaben’s new gig is a return of sorts; he began his career on the SCA-owned Hit Network at Sea FM driving the street team cars on the Central Coast.
Since then, he’s worked in many markets, including Darwin and Geelong. In 2011 he joined Nova, working in Adelaide, Sydney and Melbourne, covering workday shifts, network music shows and also filled in on drive.
Last week it was confirmed that Ellie would step down from her 2Day FM workday gig after eight consecutive years, but she’s not leaving the station altogether.
Ellie told Radio Today that she is still working at 2Day FM in a new content assistant and producer role. She will also cover a weekend shift on-air in addition to her new duties.
Ellie’s eight years means she holds the record for the longest-serving workday announcer at the Sydney station.
