Hughesy & Kate into Perth along with Kyle & Jackie O
Hughesy & Kate will make their debut on 96fm for the drive home from June 22.
With ARN acquiring 96fm from Fairfax earlier this year, the move sees Hughesy & Kate on every KIIS network station across the country as they gun to be the number one brand in the 25-54 market.
“I am very pleased that our audiences in Perth will now be able to drive home with the much-loved Hughesy & Kate, one of radio’s all-time great partnerships who have established themselves as the country’s most popular Drive show”, said Duncan Campbell ARN Group Content Director.
“In addition, including the Kyle & Jackie O Hour as part of our line-up is a key part of our strategy in delivering great shows, the best on-air talent and compelling content for our listeners.”
About the launch of their national drive show into Perth, Hughesy said: “I lived in Scarborough for two years. My comedy career started in Northbridge. I love Perth and can’t wait to be on-air with my mate Kate.”
“West is best! Can’t wait to make Perth suffer like the rest of the country”, Kate added.
Hughesy & Kate start on June 22 from 4pm, with Kyle and & Jackie O set to appear weeknights from 6pm.
ARN’s Chief Executive Officer Ciaran Davis, said: “The addition of Hughesy & Kate into the station’s line up marks an important and positive step for 96FM’s positioning in the market. Its integration, along with the Kyle & Jackie O Hour, into the KIIS Network provides the perfect foundation for ARN to offer a truly unique national offering across all five metro markets. With the largest listener reach and easy to implement communication solutions, the KIIS Network offers more opportunities than ever for advertisers and agencies.”
