After last week announcing his intention to depart FIVEaa, Jeremy Cordeaux told listeners on Thursday afternoon that he would be staying.

Jeremy revealed he will take over FIVEaa’s nights program, 8pm-12am, currently hosted by Alan Hickey who will step back as he battles cancer.

“It is with sadness that I give you that news about Alan,” Jeremy said. “And it is with delight that I say I have agreed to go back to doing nights. I really do love talking to you…”

Jeremy read out on air a statement from Alan:

“I take great strength from the support of my family, listeners and colleagues. Cancer is more prevalent than we care to admit, and I have spoken to my many listeners through the year who are fighting their very own battles.

“I find their strength, determination, positivity to be a great inspiration as I begin my own battle back to good health. I look forward to beating this illness, getting back on air and having lots of fun with our wonderful and supportive FIVEaa listeners.”

“Alan, our love and best wishes are with you,” Jeremy said.

Hear Alan on air tonight, from 8pm.

Jeremy’s radio career, from office boy to station owner -- and everything in between -- has spanned more than 50 years. He was inducted in to the Australian Radio Hall of Fame in 2015.
