Harley Breen announces he’s quitting Em Rusciano’s 2DayFM radio show

The star resigned on air this morning.

Em Rusciano’s radio show received a massive blow this morning after co-host Harley Breen resigned live on air this morning. 

Breen made the announcement during their show on Tuesday morning, explaining that he’ll be finishing up radio at the end of the year.

‘I’m heading back to the fiscally responsible job of being a touring stand up – very smart,’ he joked. ‘It’s by no means an easy decision, but it’s absolutely the right one.’

I love a lot of things that I’ve been fortunate enough to have in my life: my fiancee, my boys, and stand up. So I’ve made the choice to give those things my full attention going into the future,’ he continued.

Rusciano broke down as she thanked him for joining her.

‘I’m very sad you’re leaving. We’re great mates,’ she told him tearfully. ‘Obviously everyone will be shocked, but I’m still here.’
