Grant Denyer to join Em Rusciano's 2Day FM breakfast show

Channel 10 personality Grant Denyer is joining Em Rusciano's 2DAY FM breakfast show.

The appointment means the comedian will have not one, but two new co-hosts in the new year. Last month it was revealed Ed Kavalee was replacing Harley Breen after he announced on-air he was quitting breakfast radio.

Denyer currently hosts Ten's Family Feud and was this year nominated for a Gold Logie. In March the father of two broke his coccyx in a near-fatal car crash.

In a statement, Denyer said he was thrilled to be joining 2DAY FM's 2018 lineup.

"I'm told breakfast radio is even more dangerous than race car driving and I fractured my bum and almost died doing that this year... so, what could go wrong?"

The former journalist then poked fun at his height, saying: "I won't need the booster seat Ed because it's in my contract I get to sit on your knee."

The Hit Network's head of content Gemma Fordham described Denyer has one of Australia's most energetic personalities.

"[He] was a dynamo on breakfast TV and reshaped the landscape," she said. "When it comes to entertaining Aussies, his instincts are spot on. I know he is the perfect addition to brighten up Sydney's morning alongside Em and Ed."

Rusciano described Denyer as a "blond bombshell" and "glamorous bogan".

2DAY FM's breakfast shows have been short-lived ever since Kyle and Jackie O jumped ship to rival station KIIS FM, taking a large chunk of listeners with them. However, Rusciano's program managed to survive for a second year despite pulling just 3.3 per cent of Sydney breakfast radio listeners in the most recent survey.
