Staff barged into the studio in the final moments of the brekky show to give some love to Aaron.
In addition to hosting breakfast over the years with the likes of Dan, Jarrod, Helen and Erin, Aaron was a key figure in the programming side of the radio station, helping to create the Hope sound you hear across the day.
Aaron's been feeling the love from you and other Hope listeners...
Thank you for the last 10yrs! Our family will miss you in the mornings. Best wishes for what's yet to come! Hugs! Mich Mascorella
I miss you already! But so glad to see you listening to God's voice and taking that leap of faith! Bless Ya Buddy! Sarah Reedy
We will miss you Aaron ... I listen to you guys every morning on the way to work it won't be the same without you. You & Dan have put many smiles on my face. God bless you Maryan Yonan
I've been a Hope listener for 20+ years and you've been a very real part of my morning routine, Aaron. I'm a little sad to have been away on holidays during your final week at the station and missed all the "last" moments. Believing for great things ahead for you and your family. Great big, virtual, germ-free hug!!!! Michelle Costelloe
After 10 years hosting breakfast on Sydney's Hope 103.2 Aaron felt it was time to hang up the headphones. Our loss will be the gain of MTS (Ministry Training Strategy) as he takes up the position of Development Officer.
Some of Moments of Aaron Wright
Pablo the piranha became an unexpected mascot of the brekky team, it did make the other two look good.
Then honorary doctorates were introduced to the breakfast show, Education institutions were up in arms that Aaron & Dan were giving away these highly prized awards for free.
Aaron was always up for costumes and singing the occasional parody song.
Aaron pretended to be interested in sport, I think he knew who he was standing next to here...
Aaron tried various diets and fitness programs on-air with his co-hosts but in 2015 he was determined to get into shape. And he did, losing weight and kicking butt in the City 2 Surf. We were all very proud!
