The Project's Steve Price makes shock career announcement: 'Won't be back'

The Project host and radio presenter Steve Price has announced his radio show has been axed and won't be back in 2023.

The national radio show, Australia Today, was part of Southern Cross Austereo and broadcasted regionally by Triple M as well as nationally on the Listnr app.

In a column published on Friday by the Herald Sun, Steve said it had been a "rollercoaster radio ride" that lasted for 35 years and ended Friday.

"And not for any other reason than time’s up. No scandal here," he wrote.

The presenter reflected on his time on radio, adding 2021 and 2022 had been some of the most memorable years.

"Just think floods, Ukraine war, the Queen dying and Covid – but economics intervened, and we won’t be back," he said.

"Thirty-five years is a long time to have survived the cutthroat world of talkback radio and, mostly, I have enjoyed every minute of it. Mostly but not always," he added, referencing when he was dumped from Sydney's 2UE breakfast show in 2004.


Over his three-decades-long radio career, Steve has hosted programs on 3AW, 2UE, MTR, 2GB and SCA on Triple M's regional network.

He finished his column by announcing he would still be writing his columns for the Herald Sun and will continue to appear as a regular panellist on The Project.

The announcement comes after a number of his co-hosts on the news program stepped down, making way for new talent to join the show next year.

Lisa Wilkinson, Peter Helliar and Carrie Bickmore all finished up at the show in recent months, with Studio 10 host Sarah Harris announced as next year's replacement for Carrie.

Waleed Aly will still be a regular fixture on the show.
