Angus, Emma and Ash: New Gigs
The Hit Network’s hit30 guys Angus O’Loughlin and Emma Freedman will finish this week.
Angus will return to Adelaide to join hit107’s breakfast show with Cat & Amos, while Emma will remain in Sydney to join The Grill Team on Triple M.
Angus had short run in 2013 at then SAFM on Breakfast before taking on network nights for the last four years.
“I’m beyond stoked to be returning to Adelaide! Friends, AFL, Coopers Pale Ale, Hahndorf and hit107. I can’t wait to get behind the mic every morning for breakfast with Cat & Amos,” Angus said. “Growing up I secretly listened to night radio in my bedroom and idolised the format. When I was given the chance to get behind that microphone in Sydney, I had to leave home, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity. One thousand celebrity interviews later and a thousand dinner dates missed (ha!), I’m very ready to swap nights for breaky and One Direction for Rory Sloane.”
Emma’s move will see her join Triple M’s Grill Team in Sydney. After already filling in on the show at different times and been a roving Grill Team reporter during the Rio Olympics
“I’m really excited to permanently join the show,” Emma said. “Breakfast radio is a place I’ve always wanted to work, and this is an incredible opportunity with a great team who have been super welcoming. Sport and laughs – I’m pumped for it!”
Triple M Sydney Content Director Jamie Angel said, “Emma liked us and we love having her, so we have invited her to hang out for longer and be a regular part of the show.”
To cover off Hit Network nights, they will launch a national music based show Ash London Live. It will replace the Hit 30 format 8-11pm. Ash returns after doing the shazam Top 20 with Angus a year or two back.
Head of Content for the Hit Network, Gemma Fordham, said “Ash London Live will be a must listen to radio show for music fans in Australia, it will be everywhere – curating and breaking the best music on earth. The show will be relatable, conversational and entertaining! Ash is simply brilliant and I couldn’t be more delighted that she’ll be enhancing the Hit network line up.”
On her new show Ash London said, “Together with my incredible team I’m excited to bring a new kind of show to nights. Passionate music chat, unleashing and curating the best tunes in the world, and having a stack of fun while we do it.”
