Jay-Jay Harvey will host More FM's Drive show with Jason Gunn, starting in April, MediaWorks has announced.

Current More FM Drive host Lana Searle is moving to the More FM Breakfast show with Si and Gary.

In late 2017, Jay-Jay left The Edge after working at the station for 23 years, saying she had the station "in her blood" in an emotional final broadcast.

"This is a huge move for me and I couldn't be more excited," Jay-Jay says.

"It was bittersweet to say goodbye to The Edge after such a long time, but it makes it easier knowing that I'll be sitting next to Jase, a true broadcasting legend."

After several years of working on The Edge Breakfast, Jay-Jay added she's also looking forward to "no more early morning wake-ups".

Jason has already prepared a warm welcome for his new co-host, while bidding farewell to Lana.

"I found a true friend in Lana and had the time of my life working with her," he says.

"I've really been lucky to work with some very talented people throughout my career, and that continues as I can't wait for Jay-Jay to join me in the afternoon. I can guarantee there will be much laughter had by all."

MediaWorks made the announcement at a customer and media event held in Auckland on Thursday afternoon, where a new corporate brand identity for the company was also unveiled.

In November, National MP Steven Joyce made headlines by saying Jay-Jay was moving to The Breeze - which has turned out to be incorrect.
