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.

The cult film Trainspotting has been given a sequel 21 years on, and it premiered in Sydney last week. Danny Boyle directed the original and T2 Trainspotting, the sequel, and he chatted with 2SER's own Kevin Suarez direct from the red carpet about what it took to bring it back to the big screen two decades later.
Each week 2SER's own Michael Jones swings by to help you decide what new movies are worth watching - and what's worth giving a miss. T2 Trainspotting is a sequel with a lot to live up to. A sea of cult fans of the original have nervously anticipated the film since its announcement. So what is the verdict of the cinematic reunion? Does director Danny Boyle do the 1996 film justice?
