Hamish & Andy have Déjà vu, Emma Freedman re-signs, Jules Lund goes Digital
Southern Cross Austereo has announced a number of changes this arvo around some key Hit Network talent and shows.
First up Hamish & Andy have added another hour to their day, well sort of. Between 6 and7 pm, ‘Déjà vu Hour’ has Hamish and Andy covering off segments listeners may have missed earlier in the show.
That means Scoopla is gone. The show has wrapped up with Jules Lund now moving in to a strategic role. Dave Cameron, Head of National Content and Development said: “Jules Lund is a thought leader in the digital marketing space and moves in to a strategic role that allows SCA to capitalise on these strengths. From consulting to the countries largest media agencies to directing branded content, Jules will help ensure SCA is future ready with innovation at its core.”
Next, Emma Freeman has secured a new long term agreement with the company. Joining the group just over 12 months doing Scoopla with Jules Lund, Emma went on to cover news with Hamish & Andy and this year joined Angus O’Loughlin on nights.
Her new deal will see her host new night show across the Hit Network nationally with Angus. Angus and Emma will also host the national Take 40 Australia on Saturday afternoons across the country.
Emma said: “Radio has proven to be an outlet I love and enjoy throwing myself in to every day. Diving further in and having the chance to have some fun with our audience in the evenings is something I am really looking forward to. Anything can happen – bring it on!”
Further on the changes, Dave Cameron said: “Having Hamish & Andy show content on air across the whole 4-7pm drive period, followed by the brilliant new national night time combination of Angus and Emma sets up an exciting 2016 for the Hit network nationally”.
