Trioli confirmed as Faine’s replacement

ABC News Breakfast presenter Virginia Trioli has been confirmed as Jon Faine’s replacement as host of the Mornings program on ABC Radio Melbourne, reports ABC News.

Trioli has hosted television program ABC News Breakfast since 2008, but worked in radio from 2000 to 2005, when she hosted the ABC Melbourne drive time slot. She has filled in for Faine before, as well as for Tony Jones on ABC TV’s Q&A.

Faine, who has hosted the weekday Mornings program for 23 years, announced his retirement in January. He will retire at the end of 2019.

‘Radio is in my soul and I’m pinching myself that this once-in-a-career opportunity has come my way. Melbourne—we’re going to make great radio together,’ said Trioli.
