Nicole da Silva is hanging up her microphone and saying goodbye to 5FM.

The fun and fearless on-air DJ hosts The Weekend Playdate every Saturday and Sunday from 14:00 -17:00, and through the years we've shared in her relationship drama, travels and life's generally awkward moments.  

Looking back on her career at the station, she wrote in an Instagram post: "It's been an incredible journey since 2010 doing my first show midnight - 3am and with the changes over the years, finally landing weekend breakfast. [sic]" 

She added: "5 was the only station I ever dreamed of being a part of and I've had that privilege for over a decade, but it's time to move on. [sic]"


Nicole promised to share some of the "countless memories and moments" she experienced at the station before her final broadcast next week. 

She accompanied the announcement with a photo of her most recent headshot, alongside the first photo that appeared on the 5FM website - and she hasn't changed a bit!
