After nine years as Breakfast presenter for 666 ABC Canberra and more than 20 years with the ABC, Ross Solly is leaving the station at the end of the broadcast year.
Ross has been a popular and trustworthy voice on breakfast radio, his deep connection with the ACT community and intelligent wit has kept him at the forefront of breakfast radio in the Capital.
Ross is leaving to accompany his partner Samantha Hawley and their young family to Bangkok as a result of Samantha’s recent appointment as ABC News South East Asia correspondent. She’ll take up her new position in the New Year.
It’s been thrilling and a real privilege to host 666 Breakfast,” said Ross.
“I think over nine years I’ve proven myself to be one of this community’s most adept early morning risers. I’m proud that in those nine years I’ve not once slept in, so I’m looking forward to that change,” he joked.
