Weatherman Sam Wallace has quit TV to launch a new breakfast radio show with Toni Street.
The much-loved duo will unite with Sarah Gandy as the new hosting trio of The Hits radio station's Auckland breakfast show.
The show is set to launch in February.
Street is best know to Kiwis as the host of TVNZ's Seven Sharp, opposite Mike Hosking, while Wallace has been a leading figure of TVNZ's Breakfast show since 2012.
"We are thrilled to announce that Sarah, Sam and Toni will host our new Auckland breakfast show on The Hits," NZME group entertainment director Dean Buchanan said.
"We knew we were on to something good when we started 'Toni and Sam' on Saturday mornings on The Hits earlier this year. Adding to their skills is our very own morning star Sarah Gandy, who has formed a great bond with Toni and Sam."
Wallace said the early starts wouldn't be a problem in his pending switch from TV to radio.
He said he was excited to be reunited with his former Breakfast co-host Street and was also good friends with Gandy.
"They're both such awesome and talented women and I'm stoked I'll get to start my day with them both and The Hits listeners," he said.
Street said she couldn't wait to take on the challenge of daily radio, while maintaining her role with TVNZ, co-hosting Seven Sharp. Her Seven Sharp co-host, Hosking, also hosts Newstalk ZB's breakfast radio show.
"If Hosking can do it, how hard can it be?" she joked.
"As a mother-of-two, my family are always my priority but I have their full support on this and I can't wait for the adventure ahead."
For Gandy, it's a dream job, made better by working with two close friends.
"Toni is my kindred spirit and Sam is the (older) younger brother I never asked for. We can't wait to start our day with Aucklanders and make that commute to work more fun."
Meanwhile, veteran and award-winning radio hosts Polly Gillespie and Grant Kereama - who currently host The Hits' morning show around the country as well as in Auckland - are looking at exciting new opportunities within NZME, which is also the publisher of the Herald.
