After bringing the Happy Hour with Lucy & Nikki podcast, hosted by Lucy Jackson and Nikki Westcott, to LiSTNR in January, the Hit Network have also given them a Saturday night gig, alongside Nic Kelly. Kelly’s new role sees him host The Hot Hits from 5-7pm, Lucy & Nikki follow, from 7-9pm.
Kelly’s program will be dedicated to new music and artists. He said:
“It has been a lifelong goal of mine to create a music-focused national radio show. Music is a never-ending search for something that connects to you, it’s a universal language.
Australian music is so rich, diverse and exciting and I can’t wait to chat with incredible homegrown artists and spotlight their new music each week alongside the big international hits that matter.”
This is Jackson and Westcott’s first radio gig and they plan to discuss all the things that would usually be locked-up in your friends’ group chat alongside a killer playlist.
Head of Hit Metro Content, Amanda Lee, said:
“We are excited to announce two new shows to the stellar line up across the Hit Network, which will elevate Australia’s Saturday nights to the ultimate party.
Nic Kelly’s music knowledge is second to none and he has an uncanny ability to uncover the next big hits. Listeners will want to tune in to his The Hot Hits show to stay on top of all the biggest music news. Meanwhile, Lucy and Nikki have established a huge audience for their podcast, and they are now set to light up the airwaves with their hilarious chat. Also famous for their love of music festivals, listeners can expect to hear their killer playlist to fire up the night!”
Kelly sneakily launched last Saturday. You can check out the two new programs from 5pm Saturday February 10 across the Hit Network and LiSTNR.
