Sunday night Byron Cooke will launch a new all Australian music show across the Hit Network.
Hit AU will air at 10pm and will be the Hit Network’s home for hot Australian music – new and old school – and the go-to show for discovering upcoming Australian artists.
A different co-host will join Byron each week, with a chance to get to know Australian music personalities a little better and their music on-air and via social media. Hit AU’s FANSNAP will be a new weekly segment that will let fans ask artists questions directly via Snapchat.
Byron Cooke, also anchor on Fox FM’s Fifi & Dave breakfast show said: “to know I’ll be able to give artists their first commercial radio airplay across the country is a massive honour for me and I know just how huge it will be for these artists as well”.
Samantha Jade will join Byron as co-host this Sunday night for Hit AU’s first show. Melbourne based pop-rock group , Masketta Fall, will be first up for FANSNAP.
Next month Byron will also be the MC the Worldwide Radio Summit in Hollywood – a gathering of hundreds of international radio and music executives discussing creative interaction, understanding, networking and commercial interests within a global market.
