New Zealand Media and Entertainment (NZME) will pair former KIIS 101.1 radio presenter Polly ‘PJ’ Harding and Kiwi television personality Matty McLean for a new Drive show on The Hits in 2024.
Harding hosted ZM’s drive show with Jason Hawkins, before both moving to Melbourne to cohost the KIIS’s breakfast show until June 2021. McLean is a television presenter best known for his role as co-host on TVNZ’s Breakfast.
Harding says she’s stoked to be back with NZME, where her radio career began with an internship at ZM back in 2011:
“I feel a bit like I’m returning home! And I’m really looking forward to joining Matty and The Hits team in the new year. It’s an awesome station that plays great music and I can’t wait to be back on New Zealand’s airwaves on The Hits.”
“Finally this face-for-radio is where it belongs! I’m so excited to be joining The Hits in 2024 with PJ. She’s an absolute radio legend and has been a great friend of mine for years – we’ve even filled in together on air in the past. So, to get the chance to hang out with one of the funniest, unfiltered people in broadcasting every day is a dream come true. This is going to be fun. Bring on 2024!”
Megan Papas was also announced to be joining Jono & Ben on The Hits breakfast show in 2024 last week.
