Triple J confirms Hottest 100 will no longer air on Australia Day

The campaign to get Triple J to change the date of its Hottest 100 out of respect for Indigenous Australians has been successful.

The radio station revealed on Monday it will no longer count down the top songs of the year on Australia Day. Instead, the Hottest 100 will shift to January 27.

The broadcaster said it made the decision to change the date of the Hottest 100 after 60 per cent of surveyed listeners flagged their support. Thirty-nine per cent said they didn't want to change the date, while one per cent had no opinion.

"You told us how much you love the countdown and most of you are up for a new day," Triple J said in a statement.

"We all agreed that the Hottest 100 shouldn't be part of a debate about the day it's on. The only debate should be about the songs."
