Jase & PJ’s imaging producer Toni Lodge resigns

Editor & Content Director

The Jase & PJ Breakfast show on KIIS 101.1 in Melbourne has lost another team member, with Toni Lodge revealing this morning she is leaving.

Lodge joined in 2018 as imaging producer after some time with the KIIS night show Celeb HQ.

Prior to that, she’d been a commercial producer and imaging producer at SCA.

On the Jase & PJ podcast this morning she revealed she was taking up the role of executive producer and co-host of the She’s On The Money podcast.

Lodge said: “I’ve been so lucky to be a part of this family for the past three years and it wasn’t easy for me to choose.”

Co-host of Jase & PJ, Jase Hawkins, said he was “so fucking proud” of the departing team member, but did note that with all the recent departures it was resembling a “crazy run out sale here, isn’t it?”

Lodge’s last day on the program will be the same as fellow imaging producer Jaxson McLennan, who is moving to the United States.

Last year, Rami Mustafa, or ‘Producer Salami’, who had previously been a senior content producer on the show, reappeared at 92.9 Triple M Perth as a senior producer on the new Breakfast showBasil, Xav & Jenna. 

The show also recently lost its executive producer, Alex Perigo, who moved back to New Zealand.

The EP role was briefly filled by Liza Altarejos, with the permanent replacement Caitlin McArthur coming across from SCA, where she was the senior national producer on the Hit Network’s Drive program Carrie & Tommy.

Lodge also hosts the One Trick Toni podcast.

Toni is a future on air star and it’s great to see her get this opportunity.

McLennan, not McLellan. In this business our names are our brands, surely you guys know that.

@Rob. Sinking? This crew has never even come close to the average KIIS/MIX breakfast show average ratings since taking over. Beggars belief why ARN would put two unknowns in a market like Melbourne. But I guess they’re saving some $$. #shiphassunk

Congratulations Toni – best of luck in the podcasting world.

Third team member to resign this year.

What does this say about the BTS goings on at Kiis? Anyone share insight?

It’s bad luck for Jase as he has given it a good go. Was never going to work, he would kill in a large regional market like
Canberra or Newcastle or back to New Zealand. Worth a shot ARN, but I’m sure Duncan has Plan B ready to go.
