I can't wait to take on breakfast radio but 6am starts will be a nightmare - Daniella Moyles

Daniella Moyles says she's not looking forward to early starts as she prepares to take over the breakfast show on Spin 1038.

Daniella currently presents The Zoo Crew with Cormac Moore every weekday at 6.45pm but they will now be moving to a much earlier slot.

"From June 22 I'm starting on the breakfast show - it's all happened so quickly," she told the Herald.

"We started about 15 months ago doing the graveyard shift on iRadio where we were on until midnight. And then we moved to Spin and we did afternoon drive from 6.45 to 8.45pm which was lovely because you had your whole day before going to work but now we'll be on from 6.45 to 9.45am.

"The format will be different from our current slot," she added.

While it's an exciting change, Daniella (27) says she's dreading getting up so early.

"I did it for two weeks before and I felt like I was so out of sorts, you have your breakfast at six in the morning but you're still staying up until nine," she said.

"I presume I'll get into a routine eventually but I did find it very jarring before.

"I'm a total night owl, I'd stay up until like one in the morning, I wouldn't even notice the time passing.

"I'm going to have to re-train myself - it's going to be a whole ordeal," she added.

Meanwhile, her boyfriend Dara Quilty presents an afternoon slot on 98fm so the pair will be on opposing time slots.

"Dara is on from four until seven in the afternoons so I don't know how it's going to work - we're going to be on totally different time schedules," she said.

Elsewhere, Daniella has been doing lots of travel writing and says her dream is to front a travel show.

"I love it, I've always had a love for it and I've done a good few travel pieces recently," she said.

"A travel show is the dream but I think it's really difficult for travel to translate onto TV because everything is so accessible online.

"So by the time it's on TV everyone knows it already and travel shows are a bit dated and kind of boring really.

"I would want to do something new, something that people can't get at the moment," she said.

"Like a point-of-view type show where the viewer can really feel like they're there - that would be incredible," the broadcaster added.
