Caitlin McArthur joins ARN as EP of Jase & PJ in the Morning

Australian Radio Network’s (ARN) KIIS Melbourne Breakfast show has a new executive producer.

Caitlin McArthur will join Jase & PJ in the Morning to replace Alex Perigo who is moving back to New Zealand.

McArthur moves to ARN from Southern Cross Austereo (SCA), where she has been since 2012.

Most recently, she has been the senior national show producer on the Hit Network’s Drive program Carrie & Tommy. SCA is currently recruiting a senior producer for the show.

Throughout her time at SCA, McArthur also worked as the EP on the Summer Breakfast program featuring Yvie Jones and Grant Denyer, and as a producer on Fox FM’s Fifi, Fev & Byron. 

Of her new role, McArthur said: “I am beyond excited to be joining the Jase & PJ show, as I’ve been an admirer for quite a while. They’re always up to something, so together with their chemistry on air and brilliant team behind them, this year is going to be a whole lot of whacky fun and I can’t wait to see where we take the show next.”

ARN’s chief content officer, Duncan Campbell, added: “Caitlin has a very genuine passion for radio and will be an invaluable asset to Jase & PJ in the Morning. Creatively she has some wonderful content ideas that will continue to deliver our listeners the unexpected, good hearted fun they’ve come to expect. We welcome her to the ARN family.”

Campbell has previously flagged his ongoing disappointment with the show’s ratings, despite backing its lineup and content. In the last ratings of 2020, the show had a 5.4% share in Breakfast, up from 4.7%.
