He has had an extensive radio career, that has included hosting roles in Perth and Sydney radio as well as time spent living and working in the United States on radio in Boston.
ARN’s Chief Content Officer, Duncan Campbell says, “Brisbane audiences love Kip, and he loves Brisbane; it’s a perfect combination. He brings great energy and enthusiasm, perfect for starting the day, and we are excited that he will be part of the new energised breakfast show on KIIS 97.3.”
Kip says, “I’m stoked to be working with Robin and Terry, I’ve been loving my time away from radio but the opportunity to work with these two was too good to pass up, even if I have to start waking up before the sun again!
“I haven’t looked forward to getting into the studio like this in years! Robin and Terry are such a great mix of funny and relatable, 2022 is going to be epic!”
Robin Bailey says, “New Year, new show and a new guy to hang out with on air, it is the start to a perfect year. I’m pretty sure this year is going to be the best so far with lots of fun, surprises and things you will never forget. I can’t wait to get back behind the mic as I know everyone is just going to love Kip!”
Terry Hansen added, “I’ve watched Kip’s work from afar for many, many years and think he’s a great brekky radio guy. I can’t say more without revealing my man crush! I’m delighted he’s on our team now.”
