Watch KIIS 101.1’s Jase and PJ in first Aussie video stunt

Former Assistant Editor

Breakfast on KIIS 101.1 in 2018 will see a couple of former kiwi radio hosts take the reigns, and now we’ve caught the first snippet of video content from Jason ‘Jase’ Hawkins and Polly ‘PJ’ Harding’.

The much loved former ZM duo were a ratings favourite in Auckland, and they were up to their old tricks recently, taking a gag they’ve previously used in New Zealand to the streets of Melbourne.

The stunt was pretty simple. Dress up in hard hats and hi-vis vests to see how many people they could convince to wait behind some cones for no reason.

Jase used what appeared to be a tried and tested technique of telling oncoming pedestrians to wait as there was a movie being shot just up the road.

On the other hand, PJ struggled to come up with an excuse to stop people breezing on by.

Radio Today first caught wind of the duo’s move to Australia back in July, with the news of Jase & PJ’s arrival on Melbourne confirmed a short while after.

You can catch Jase & PJ on KIIS 101.1 Melbourne breakfast in 2018.

Ranked 4th in Auckland and 6th over in NZ? – Some would argue the word favourite?
A good show. A bit like the word “nice” –

Hopefully they can beat 4th in Melbourne – and be a Favourite show there – Good luck in Aussie!

Here they come! They’ll be out, they’ll be active, they’ll have a great point of difference with creative must listen content.

Bloody excited to watch this show next year.

@Kris – NZ market is very different. So many stations there they all work on demographic. #1 Drive, 18-39 (ZM’s target) nationally in their last survey.

Certainly a favourite for those they were targeting. They work hard… it pays off.

I know what you re saying. I understand the station demo break down in NZ.
But they aren’t the favorite in that demo in Auckland either?

Im sure they work hard. Many shows work hard and hope that the PR spin of their station/company says that they are a favourite too. Even if its not fact.

I wish the best in Melbourne. They will need it. They will work hard, radio people that look for them will be impressed, will the audience care they are working hard – we will see?
