We’re saying goodbye to Lunch with Myf on Double J

Primary tabs

When we launched at the end of April in 2014, there was only person we could imagine helming the new station.

Myf Warhurst.

For the last three and half years, she has not only been the face of Double J, she’s also been the heart, head and soul.

She embodies all that Double J is: she's passionate and knowledgable about music, curious, adventurous, smart, hilarious and damn fine company.

Sadly, we will be saying goodbye to Lunch with Myf at the end of 2017 on Double J.

Myf is a brilliant presenter, interviewer and a total legend to work with; always up for being challenged, for relishing the old and discovering the new.

She’s a true music fan and we will bloody miss her.

But, she’s not going far. She’ll still be with Double J doing Bang On in 2018 with Zan Rowe and will still be with the ABC in 2018. And she promises she come back to bug us (as if she ever could) whenever she can.

"It is with a heavy heart that I am leaving my full time gig at Double J," she says.

"It was such an honour to be part of Double J from the very beginning, with the added bonus of being able to share some of the most lovingly and intelligently curated music you’ll hear anywhere in the world.

"Along the way I got to work with an extraordinary team whose vision made the station what it is, and be a part of a vibrant organisation that has grown with its audience.

"Double J quickly became my new musical family and it will always have a special place in my heart. So like an old Aunty, I guarantee I’ll be back to annoy everyone at future family functions."

Join her all next week for her final week of Lunch on Double J.

For now, here are a few of the very many highlights we've had with Myf over the past few years. 

She's conducted incredible interviews with some of the biggest names in music and pop culture today, from St. Vincent to Björk to Quentin Tarantino to Mavis Staples and so, so, so many more.

There was that time she paid the ultimate tribute to the legendary David Bowie by having 'Life On Mars' ring throughout the streets of Sydney (literally).

She paid a different kind of tribute to Iva Davies and Icehouse on the 30th anniversary of their Man Of Colours album.

And we will always be indebted to her for helping us through those incredibly tough days when we lost legends like Bowie, Prince, Chris Cornell and Leonard Cohen.

She always went above and beyond for us. She even strapped on the rollerskates a couple of years ago. 

 

And played the leading role in perhaps the worst joke we've ever been a part of. 

 

And she marched with all the swagger of a young Richard Ashcroft when it came time for us to celebrate the 90s on Double J earlier this year.
