Nick Cody joins FOX FM BreakfastBy Jonas Lopez in Media News on Thursday, 26th November 2020 at 1:45pm
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.”
