A new era has dawned in Hopeland, with the arrival of Laura Bennett to the Hope 103.2 Breakfast team.

Laura has moved from The Switch, Hope 103.2’s night time music show, where she graced the microphone for the past four years.

It’s no easy call moving from the night-owl environs of 7pm to midnight, into the sunny realms of the 6am to 9am breakfast shift. But Laura’s joined long-time breakfast host Dan Widdowson with her trademark enthusiasm.

For those keen to know more about who Dan and Laura really are when they’re not on the radio, we filmed them chatting while driving to McDonalds for a coffee.

The video reveals how Dan came to faith, what TV shows he worked on — and why he’s not very happy with Jamie Durie.
