The 2015 Drive Battle Just Got Interesting

Staff Writer

After 12 years in the chair on Nova100 breakfast, Hughesy and Kate called in quits back in November last year. 

But will 2015 see them re-unite on drive with a new network?




Hughesy and Kate are set to go up against Hamish & Andy in drive for 2015 with ARN according to,au..

They are set to appear on Kiis Sydney and the rest of the network for the drive home. Unlike SCA, where Hamish & Andy won’t surface until mid-year, Hughesy and Kate will kick off the New Year for the group in January.

If true, this is another coup for ARN; which can only fuel the rumours that MIX in Melbourne will transform to the KIIS brand for the New Year.

When we last spoke to ARN Group Content Director Duncan Campbell on Melbourne he said: "…Melbourne is a different market.  That’s all I'll say. And Mix 101.1 is stronger than Mix 1065 was, but at the end of the day we are looking at all options down there in terms of what we can do to improve our performance for next year."   

No word yet on what will happen with Rosso, who currently holds down the drive shift for ARN.

Chances are, Hughesy and Kate is just one of a few changes in play for ARN Melbourne and Sydney.
