Dan & Maz will continue to wake up Australia on the weekends across the Hit Network, and Angus & Ash will join forces for the Vevo20 Countdown on Saturday nights. They will take a look at the biggest 20 songs currently trending on Vevo and what’s coming next.
Sunday nights will provide pure entertainment gold, with Fifi Box kicking off with an hour of BOXED IN, followed by The Em Rusciano Radio Show, and then Australia’s newest God of Love Osher Günsberg providing two hours of dedications, messages from the heart, and stories behind the songs with Osher’s Love Line.
