Media personality Sami Lukis is set to return to radio, taking up a role in the Illawarra.
From Monday, May 3 Lukis joins the Wave FM 96.5 Breakfast Show with Straney & Damien Leith while Jade Tonta continues on maternity leave.
Lukis takes over from Meshel Laurie, who was previously filling for Tonta.
"It's been quite a few years between radio shows (and 4am wakeup calls), so I'm nervous and excited to be joining the team next week," Lukis said in a statement.
"I've hosted Carols in Kiama and Business Awards in the Illawarra many times over the years, but this will be my first time hosting a radio show in the 'Gong.
"I'm looking forward to spending more time in such a gorgeous part of the world - but mostly, I'm looking forward to having Damien sing to me every morning."
