The Hit Network will continue to be home to Australia’s biggest and most-loved radio shows, music and stars in 2019 with all your favourites and more set to return across all 42 FM stations.
After filling in for the last few months, to the delight of Sydneysiders, the talented and adored Ash London formally joins 2DayFM breakfast with Grant Denyer and Ed Kavalee in 2019. With her unrivalled knowledge and passion for the music industry, Ash will also continue to host her nightly national music show – Ash London Live weeknights 6:30pm-8pm.
The Hit Network’s unrivalled national drive time line-up dances on in 2019 with Carrie & Tommy, from 3pm - 4:30pm, and Hughesy & Kate, 4:30pm – 6:30pm, returning. Carrie & Tommy are the most-listened to FM Drive show in their time-slot and Hughesy & Kate are Australia’s #1 tune-in for women 18-54. Collectively they have over 2.5 million and growing listeners around the country.*
Danny Lakey, new to The Hit Network in 2018 with his outstanding national overnight show, will host late nights, 8pm-11pm, in 2019. Danny is a star on the rise and brings his own, unique vibe to late night audiences around the country.
The riotous Those Two Girls will return to the early morning breakfast slot from 5am-6am. The Brisbane based Lise Carlaw and Sarah Wills have become popular for their open, honest and entertaining conversations around everyday life.
The laugher and fun doesn’t stop there with Collective Noun moving to a slightly later time slot, 11pm-1am. Mid-dawns will be announced in the new year.
Gemma Fordham, Head of the Hit Network said, “We are so thrilled Ash has agreed to join our 2DayFM breakfast team full-time next year. She is the real deal, connects authentically with audiences and brings a fun, fresh and frank take on the day. The chemistry she has with Grant and Ed will only continue to flourish and we are excited about what is ahead for them!
“2DayFM breakfast is committed to playing more music when you wake up because we know that’s what our audience wants and that’s the 2DayFM difference.”
“In all dayparts the Hit Network has never been stronger and continues to grow with the best of the best leading our shows across the country. Audiences love our line-up of talent and our ever-evolving music strategy that sets us apart from the pack. We will kick off the year with a brand-new breakfast show for Adelaide with local icons and darlings Andrew ‘Cosi’ Costello and Rebecca ‘Bec’ Morse which we know will resonate with South Australians. We can’t wait for another cracking year in 2019!”
