Having grown up with a generation of young Australians on the airwaves, Alex Dyson is most well-known for his role as one half of two of the country's most successful breakfast radio duo’s – Tom & Alex, and later Matt & Alex on Australia’s beloved triple j. Alex took over the coveted national breakfast role at just 21 years of age, and for the next 7 years woke up in the early hours to entertain the over 1 million listeners weekly that tuned in by the end of his tenure, which began with childhood friend and comedian Tom Ballard in 2010 and finished with comedian Matt Okine at the end of 2016. In that time Alex was nominated for 2 ARIA Awards, winning one for Best Comedy Release, he racked up millions of views on YouTube with comedy sketches and Like a Version videos, and interviewed everyone from Arnold Schwarzenegger to then Prime Minister Julia Gillard, as well as countless local and international musical artists and every day Australians.

In 2016 Alex hosted Chris Lilley’s highly anticipated MR G SINGALONG at the Sydney Opera House, whilst his love of sport has seen him commentate for the International Women’s T20 live coverage on ABCtv, and live AFL matches for the NEAFL competition. Alex’s keen interest and talent for writing enabled him to maintain a long-running advice column in the monthly GIRLFRIEND publication, as well as land him a role in the prestigious Melbourne University Law Revue whose alumni include Magda Szubanski and the Working Dog Productions crew.
