He's spent the last 20 years reporting on technology and videogames, but that's all behind him now as he takes over the brekky reins.
You might know him already from his regular segments on a Thursday morning called I Can't Believe It's (Not) News. Or maybe you've heard him presenting Sunday Breakfast on 2SER for the past year.
Or maybe he's brand new to you -- don't worry, you'll get to know him. You can find him on Twitter (@dr_nic) or follow him on Facebook if you're after a dash of snark and a lot of photos of his cat (https://www.facebook.com/nic.healey).
In the meantime, you can hear him each morning from 6am as he quietly (or not so quietly) adjusts to the early morning starts.
Tune into 2SER Breakfast, from 6am, Monday-Friday on 107.3 FM for the latest news, diverse, local stories that you won't get anywhere else.
All our previous stories can be found below. Also check out our regular segments:

Oscar season has crept up on us again, and this year we've got two frontrunners for Best Picture that could not be more different! Will the Academy confront the backlash they've received for the white washed ceremonies of the previous two years and award the politically charged drama "Moonlight" with the gleaming golden man, or will the light-hearted escapist musical that is "La La Land" clean up? Nic was joined in the studio this morning by producer Ellie to chat politics and Hollywood.
