ARN launching Life Uncut Radio Show on KIIS from 2022
Saturdays on the KIIS Network are about to get a shake up with the introduction of Brittany Hockley and Laura Byrne’s radio debut with the Life Uncut Radio Show.
Now identified as the ‘sixth work-day’, with more people on the roads, attending sporting events and shopping than ever before, KIIS audiences will be supplied with new content offerings on Saturdays.
It is the first show to be launched as part of ARN’s Podcast to Broadcast Strategy, transforming their highly successful podcast into a radio show.
Brittany Hockley says, “I am beyond excited for the launch of Life Uncut Radio Show! There is nothing we love more than a solid yarn, sharing embarrassing stories, chatting to inspirational people and bringing the lols.”
“We are so proud of what we have created and to be able to take it to a whole new level with a national radio show, allowing us to connect with a whole new bunch of awesome humans,” says Hockley.
The Life Uncut with Britany Hockley and Laura Byrne podcast has seen consistent success, maintaining a strong position on the Australian Podcast Ranker every month in the year of 2021.
Laura Byrne says of the news, “The big secret is out, Life Uncut does radio! For the past two years Britt and I have been behind the mics in our bedrooms and now we’ll be in your ears every Saturday morning with KIIS.
“It’s going to be a lot of fun, and we can’t wait to have a laugh and share some wild stories with KIIS listeners. It will be everything you’ve come to love and know about Life Uncut, but a little bit more professional,” says Byrne.
With 1,228,700 monthly downloads and top 10 spots in the Australian Podcast Ranker every month except February, it’s expected that the Life Uncut Saturday shows on the KIIS network will draw attention.
On the announcement, ARN’s Chief Content Officer, Duncan Campbell said, “I’ve always said that Podcasts would be a potential source of new radio talent. Our Podcast to Broadcast Strategy allows us to explore that potential by placing key Podcast talent on radio with their own show. Life Uncut launches our Podcast to Broadcast Strategy and reinforces ARN’s commitment to creating quality connections with our audience as we continue to define audio.”
“Brittany and Laura are made for radio and the show will provide the audience with conversations and interviews that navigate friendships and relationships in a way that’s entertaining and engaging. We’ll be announcing more shows as part of our 2022 Saturday line up in the coming weeks.”
Voted ‘Listeners Choice’ at the 2020 Australian Podcast Awards, Life Uncut is the #3 most listened to podcast in Australia with 18m downloads since it launched in 2019.
The show promises listeners an unfiltered chat navigating friendships, relationships and the dating world while simultaneously providing belly laughs, empowering conversations, inspiring interviews and more.
More shows are set to be announced in the near future as part of the KIIS Network Saturday line up.
