Primary tabs

We are so excited to welcome Zan Rowe and her incredible music expertise to the Double J stable.

Zan Rowe is joining the Double J airwaves from Monday to Friday in 2018, bringing with her everything you love about triple j Mornings.

You'll hear her sought-after music recommendations, impeccable interview technique and the much loved Take 5 segment, where we heard about Brian Eno’s luminous songs, songs that brought David Byrne and St Vincent together and the songs that changed the life of Laura Jane Grace.

Here's what Zan had to say about her time at triple j:

“Thirteen years ago, I found my dream job at triple j and for the past ten years I've been privileged to be the custodian of the triple j Mornings show. triple j is an incredible, national community and the bond that lives between our audience and presenters is a rare gift. I’m so honoured to have been given the chance to discover and share my favourite music with you guys.

"As I close the door on this chapter, I open the next, and wander down the hallway to our sister station to kick off a brand new Mornings show. It’s time for a new dream job, and I can’t wait to discover and share the best new music with you on Double J.”

Zan brings us a stellar track record as a champion for new music: From hearing Bon Iver for the first time at SxSW in 2008 and getting his only interview at the festival in 2011, to covering Bush Bands Business in 2014 and meeting Eleanor 'Nalyirri' Dixon who went on to form 2017’s Double J Artist of the Year Nominee Kardajala Kirridarra.

She'll continue to BANG ON with Myf Warhurst each week, on their Double J podcast about music, art, life and stuff.

Zan will also be bringing you even more music news as the ABC Music Correspondent, including artist interviews and conversations on ABC News Breakfast and The Mix, and will flex her love of film and television as a panelist on ABC TV’s Screen Time.

Hear Zan Rowe on Double J, weekdays from 9am to midday, in 2018.
