After more than two decades on air, David Koch decided to leave the Sunrise couch.
The breakfast host announced he was leaving just after 8am last Monday in between segments, just a bit of news from him.
The new host of the program was announced just after 8 am on Monday.
He has filled in for Koch multiple times in the past few weeks and has been on the network for two years.
When he was confirmed for the role, the departing Sunrise host said to him, "Nice job."
He said, "You said to me this week, 'You're the perfect fit and you're gonna have the time of your life' and that meant a lot, Kochie."
Koch said that he thought his replacement would be a good one.
You've achieved something, mate. He said that the show is in great hands.
Everyone plays an important role in the show. You will be great.
Koch surprised fans of the morning show when he announced last week that he would be stepping down after 21 years.
I started here before social media. He said that was how old he was.
I'm incredibly proud of what we've achieved over the last 21 years, and I have loved every single minute of it. I have been able to experience many great adventures and meet many different people. The world's best job is it.
Chris Brown defected from Network Ten on a million-dollar deal and was one of the main candidates for the role.
Dr Brown is expected to arrive at the network in July but no position has been announced for him.
Koch didn't comment on either man's chances when he was asked about his replacement during an interview with Nova.
He said that his replacement would be younger and better looking and joked that the two radio hosts wouldn't be in the running.
Koch has been the longest-serving breakfast host in Australian history, having hosted for over 50 years.
He said the move would allow him to focus on his family and business interests, but he didn't rule out a return to Sunrise.
He said last week that he would be a guest rather than host on the days of the board meetings.
Koch and his wife are the owners of Pinstripe Media.
He is the executive chairman of AusBiz.
He is a patron of the Koch Centre For Youth and chairman of the PortAdelaide Football Club.
