Dan Bourchier will be leaving the breakfast shift later this month, after a shake-up of presenters on ABC Radio Canberra was announced for 2020.
Bourchier has been juggling presenting the breakfast shift for radio while reading the weekday TV news for the ABC since January 2017.
The new breakfast presenter in 2020 will be current Sunday Brunch presenter Lish Fejer.
ANU politics lecturer and one-time independent candidate for Ginninderra Dr Kim Huynh will present Sunday Brunch in 2020, replacing Fejer.
Adrienne Francis will present Saturday Breakfast, replacing Greg Bayliss, who leaves the ABC after a decade behind the mic.
Adam Shirley stays in Mornings, Paula Kruger in Afternoons and Anna Vidot in Drive.
The most recent radio ratings for Canberra, released in October, placed Kristen Henry and Nigel Johnson on MIX 106.3 as the leading breakfast team, followed by Bourchier.
ABC Radio Canberra was the fourth most-listened-to radio station in Canberra, trailing behind MIX 106.3, Hit 104.7 and Triple J.
Bourchier said family commitments were part of the reason he felt it was "time for a change".
"I'm tremendously grateful to the listeners on ABC Radio Canberra Breakfast for embracing me, welcoming me in, sharing their stories and helping to write new stories with me. It's been an honour," he said.
Bourchier will continue to present the ABC TV 7pm news bulletin from Sunday to Thursday, alongside Craig Allen on Friday and Saturday.
"I'm not going far," he said, "and will have plenty more to say in the weeks ahead about what I'll be up to in 2020, based here in Canberra."
Adam Shirley will continue to present Mornings, and will join Lish Fejer from 8.30am.
Paula Kruger returns to Afternoons from 12.30pm to 3.30pm (one hour extra) and Anna Vidot returns to present the Drive program, from 3.30pm to 6.30pm (30 minutes extra).
This change comes after Myf Warhurst announced last week that she will not be returning to host her music and culture show, meaning ABC Radio Canberra will be local for longer each weekday.
After more than 10 years on air, Greg Bayliss will step away from Saturday Breakfast, which will be presented in 2020 by Adrienne Francis, who has worked as a radio, television and digital journalist for ABC Canberra since 2010.
"After more than a decade, it will be nice to be a participant in the myriad activities that happen on Saturday mornings across the ACT and in surrounding towns and communities," Bayliss said.
"I have made some wonderful friendships in the community, and enjoyed the privilege of meeting so many young people (and just about everyone is young relative to me!) who are so committed, confident and making a difference in our community."
Saturday Breakfast with Adrienne Francis will include the gardening talkback segment with Willo from 8.30am each Saturday, followed by local Grandstand with Hannah Walmsley.
Kim Huynh will present Sunday Brunch, having spent the past few years presenting and reporting for ABC Radio Canberra.
ABC Radio presenter Sarah Macdonald will host Evenings across NSW and the ACT, taking over from Chris Bath, who has made the decision to spend more time with her family after three years as the host of the high-rating Evenings program.
"I've had a ball hosting Evenings and working with my little team and the listeners who make the show truly hum," Bath said.
"It was a very difficult decision to leave, but I need to find a job with hours more conducive to having my family recognise me! I know the Evenings family will be in great hands with Sarah Macdonald."
ABC Canberra editor Michelle Ainsworth was thrilled to announce the 2020 lineup.
"And delighted to welcome Lish to the Breakfast program, along with Adrienne on Saturday Breakfast and Kim to Sunday Brunch," she said.
"The breadth of their combined experience and backgrounds will make for compelling listening for local audiences throughout the day and week.
"Extended time slots for Afternoons and Drive mean that we'll be broadcasting local for longer each weekday, allowing the station to provide audiences with more local updates, stories, traffic and news throughout the afternoon and end-of-day commute."
