Meshel Laurie hosts ABC Melbourne Summer Breakfast
ABC Melbourne has taken an out-of-the-box approach to its Summer Breakfast programming, with Meshel Laurie kicking off her stint on the show this morning.
Rather than the tried and tested approach of using the likes of finding an internal Breakfast replacement, ABC Melbourne has tapped up the commercial radio host for the slot.
“This is a dream come true for me,” said Meshel in her first break this morning.
“Here I am, Meshel Laurie, on ABC Melbourne Breakfast. Just filling in for a couple of weeks.”
A comedian, author and TV personality, Laurie broke through into radio with Meshel, Ash, Kip & Luttsy in 2005 on Nova 106.9.
She then had stints on Nova 100 and national Drive as part of the Meshel, Tim & Marty show (replaced by Kate Ritchie in 2014).
Laurie most recently hosted the Matt & Meshel Breakfast show on KIIS 101.1. The show was axed in 2017.
She's a comedian, a Buddhist Author, True Crime Podcaster…and Breakfast host?! The multi-talented @Meshel_Laurie is in the chair for @abcmelbourne Summer Breakfast, and on your airwaves right now ☀ pic.twitter.com/DD4iGIxvgY
