Zan Rowe’s Career
Rowe is presently the host of Double J’s Friday Mornings show, which includes the podcast, TV series Take 5, and the mainstay feature. Her interest in radio started around 1996 when she volunteered as a DJ at Melbourne’s SRA FM. Two years later, when the station was given an official full-time license, she joined the executive team of SYN FM.
Zan landed her dream job after switching from SYN FM to 3RRR FM. She was assigned the duties of hosting the Monday drive-time show Transit Lounge from 2002 to 2004. She also worked as the producer of talks and breakfast shows.
As time went by, she started working late hours as well, anchoring early morning shifts on Triple J in 2005, while also completing her degree in Media Studies and DJing around town. These evenings, fuelled by a cup of coffee, would be the beginning of an amazing journey.
Zan started working at Triple J in 2006. She hosted Weekend Lunch at first, then swiftly moved into the Triple J Mornings position, where she worked until 2017. Here, Zan has woven herself into the framework of the country’s youth network, bringing music to the lives of several Australian generations and establishing herself as the co-host of Take 5.
In 2017, Zan launched the Bang On podcast, a weekly wrap of “music, art, life, and stuff,” with longtime colleague and friend Myf Warhurst. Since then, the podcast has amassed millions of downloads, sold-out live events, and a devoted following of “Bang Fam.”
In 2018, Zan made a big move to Triple J’s “big sister” station Double J, where she hosted a new morning show and organized Ice Cube’s first-ever Take 5 live concert at the Sydney Opera House. Take 5 has since accompanied hometown hero Briggs to Shepparton and traveled to Hobart for Dark Mofo with Warren Ellis.
