He stated that today’s last episode with Eddie McGuire and Luke Darcy would also be his farewell to the show, and he will focus his work on A Current Affair.
Costello had been involved with Triple M for most of the past five years.
“It seems the right time to finish up with Eddie and Darce, who have both been amazing supporters. I’m so proud of the way we’ve brought a hard-news edge to FM Breakfast. But the Hot Breakfast Family - the audience - have been the stars and I will miss them dearly,” he said in a Radioinfo interview.

Kim Bauer to exit 2HDBy Jonas Lopez in Media News on Thursday, 26th November 2020 at 3:45pm
Kim Bauer is finishing her stint at 2HD in Newcastle.
Radioinfo reported that she would make her last airing on her breakfast show with Richard King on 27 November to return to her family in WA.
Bauer is one of Newcastle’s enduring voices, having been in the community for almost 35 years. She first joined in 1979 as announcer and music director for 2NX (now HIT 106.9) and worked on NEWFM’s licence application.
She would work in NEWFM from 1991 to 1999 and from 2012 to 2017, with a co-hosting at NXFM breakfast in between.
Carrie and Tommy takes on full Hit Network Drive gigBy Jonas Lopez in Media News on Thursday, 26th November 2020 at 1:57pm
The Hit Network is tapping the duo of Carrie Bickmore and Tommy Little for the full national Drive show.
Southern Cross Austereo said Hughesy and Ed’s departure for 2DAY FM in Sydney left Hit without programs in the 5PM-7PM block. As such, Carrie and Tommy’s 3PM-5PM show will instead finish at 6PM, with highlights from The Morning Crew airing from 6PM to 7PM.
Despite Carrie and Tommy’s new assignment, Ten confirmed that the duo’s commitments on The Project will continue in 2021.
“We are thrilled Carrie and Tommy are our national drive show for 2021. When you listen to Carrie and Tommy the most obvious and appealing thing is their genuine affection for each other. They are friends who enjoy opening up their mics to deliver a show that is full of life and charm, with just the right amount of provoking each other for the entertainment of others,” said HIT Network chief Gemma Fordham.
“We know our audience love the show and want more, the

Comedian Nick Cody is co-hosting the FOX FM Fifi, Fev and Byron Breakfast show in Melbourne.
Show co-host Byron Cooke said Cody will replace him when he steps down from the show on 27 November after five years on the team. He will spend more time with his family and run his podcast.
Cody is heading down from Brisbane, having left Triple M Brisbane’s breakfast show.
“I’m so pumped to be joining Fifi and Fev in 2021. Fifi is an absolute legend and let’s be honest, there is only one bloke that can keep up with one of the best full forwards of all time and that is me – 1999’s Werribee Under 12’s 3rd best and faires,” said Cody.
“It’s insane that they’ve let a kid from Hoppers Crossing join the breakfast show on the biggest radio station in the country. 2020 was a hectic year for Melburnians but we are on our way back to the life we love.”
