Mel Greig returns to radio with 96.5 Wave FM

Australian radio presenter Mel Greig has secured her first full time radio job since leaving 2Day FM in Sydney.

She’ll be hosting breakfast on 96.5 Wave FM in Wollongong from January, along with co-host Travis Winks.

Mel posted a photo of a microphone on Instagram, saying: “Pumped to share that I’ll be returning to radio in 2016. I’ll be calling the beautiful Illawarra home and I’ll be joining the 96.5 Wave FM family.”

Station Manager Tony Williams: We are delighted to announce that Mel Greig will be joining the Wave FM Breakfast Show with Travis Winks in 2016. Over the past few weeks we have spent time with Mel and have really had a chance to learn more about her and how much she has to offer. Her warmth, enthusiasm and experience are going to be great attributes to the Wave family. We love Mel’s genuine excitement and passion for radio and the anticipation for the move to Illawarra.

“Mel is already heavily involved in her community surroundings and is an avid charity ambassador, we can’t wait to see her get involved in the Illawarra community too. Mel will make the move to Wollongong in early January and she is very excited about the move.”

The presenter was a guest at last year’s Radio Festival where she shared her experienced since the hoax call incident.

Mel Greig added: I’m thrilled to be joining the team at Wave FM and I’m so grateful to be given the opportunity to return to what I love. Dean Kesby the Content Director was one of my first bosses in radio and I can’t wait to work with him again, the Wave family have been incredibly supportive and welcoming. To have the ability to use your voice to inspire others or to help people by sharing your own experiences is a rewarding and incredible job to have. I can’t wait to start on air and to start exploring the South Coast and discovering everything it has to offer. I’m pretty sure this big goofy smile that I currently have on my face will be firmly planted for months to come.”
