Narelda Jacobs has clapped back at radio host Darryl Brohman after he told co-host Erin Molan to put on a bra.

"This is a bittersweet move for me," she continued, "over my time at 10 Perth I’ve been privileged to see just how strong the community spirit is in the West."

"I'm so excited. Look at this beautiful city," she said pointing to the Perth landscape behind her.

"I'm a proud Western Australian, but I'm also a proud Australian ... Home is where the heart is. My heart follows me everywhere I go and I've got you guys as my family now.

"I'm just going to love life, whatever it holds."

Jacobs will officially join the 'Studio 10' team on Monday, January 13 in 2020 alongside Sarah Harris, Angela Bishop, Kerri-Anne Kennerley, Joe Hildebrand, Natarsha Belling and Denise Drysdale.
