3PM heats up with new KIIS afternoon line-up

It's a sizable day of news from ARN, and it appears they've left the biggest till last!

ARN has announced that Meshel Laurie, who co-hosted The 3PM Pick Up with Monty in 2016, will exit the afternoon show, to focus on KIIS101.1’s Matt & Meshel breakfast program and other media commitments.

ARN also announced an all new 3PM Pick Up in 2017, with high-profile personalities Rebecca Judd and Yumi Stynes to host alongside Katie ‘Monty’ Dimond on the national 3–4pm show on the KIIS Network this year.

The news comes just days after SCA announced a rival show with The Project's Carrie Bickmore and comedian Tommy Little, also a regular on the Network Ten TV show.

ARN’s national content director Duncan Campbell said the 3PM Pick Up is an hour of fun stories and hot topics of the day, brought to you by intelligent, interesting women who have a fantastic sense of humour.

“ARN was the first-to-market with a show in this unique 3pm time-slot and position back in 2011, creating an entertaining afternoon show that helps our listeners keep in touch with the real conversations that women are having every day around the country," he said.

“Our new 2017 hosts Monty, Rebecca and Yumi are a mix of media professionals, bloggers, business owners, and Mums who have a serious social media footprint that has turned them into personalities with real influence among their engaged audience.”

Katie ‘Monty’ Dimond joined the KIIS Network in 2014 as a co-host on The 3PM Pick Up and also has a huge following on her women’s lifestyle website Show + Tell, the “home of conversations that connect women”.

“I’m so pumped to work with Yumi and Bec this year. I love these girls and what they do and think our 3pm audience will have a real hoot listening. I suspect it will be like eavesdropping on some juicy conversations. It’s fair to say the three of us don’t have many boundaries”, said Monty.

A household name before establishing her popular blog Rebecca Judd Loves, mum-of-four Rebecca Judd will make her radio debut as part of the new line-up.

Rebecca is also Channel 9 television presenter, model, speech pathologist, wife, mother and blogger.

“I’m so excited about joining the girl gang on The 3PMPick Up. This will be my first foray into radio; I haven’t done anything like this before!," Rebecca said.

No stranger to TV and radio, Yumi Stynes will return to the KIIS Network after hosting ARN’s Breakfast Show in Sydney way back when the station was known at Mix 106.5 FM.

"I have four kids and a rock n roll heart and, like so many other parents, I'm knee-deep in lunches, homework and schoolyard politics.  I still love to laugh though, and feel so privileged to be able to share the humour, the pain and humanity of life on The 3PM Pick Up.  I know the audience because I am literally the woman we’re talking to,” Yumi Said.

Throughout the year, Monty, Rebecca and Yumi will be joined by other celebrity interviewees that audiences will love. Monty will be joined by co-host Rebecca Judd every Monday and by co-host Yumi Stynes each Tuesday to Friday.
