ARN has announced the latest show to join the KIIS Network in the 3pm timeslot, THE PICK UP with Britt, Laura and Mitch.

The new show comes after KIIS FM axed the 3PM Pick Up with Kate Langbroek, Monty Dimond and Yumi Stynes at the end of last year. 

THE PICK UP hosts are no strangers to the KIIS Network, with Brittany Hockley and Laura Byrne previously transforming their award-winning podcast Life Uncut into a radio show each Saturday on KIIS, and Mitch Churi a familiar voice to listeners on KIIS 1065 and KIIS 101.1 after working his way up the ranks in the studio to his ongoing role as host of The Night Show.

Hockley also joined Kyle Sandilands to fill in for Jackie O on the popular breakfast show on the KIIS airwaves last year.

Of the announcement, Byrne said, “I am so beyond excited to start THE PICK UP with Britt and to have the brilliant Mitch Churi join us as a co-host. Over the past year, we have had a ball creating our Saturday show, but now we no longer have to bottle up all our stories and wait until the weekend to share them.

“As a mum who is usually in the car on the way to day-care pick up at 3pm, I really enjoy tuning into the radio at this time, and it feels surreal to now be a part of creating the content, keeping it fun, fresh and relatable.”

Hockley added, “I am so excited to be doing THE PICK UP with two people I genuinely love dearly, Laura Byrne and Mitch Churi.

“The three of us are from different walks of life and are lucky enough to have worked closely together for years, meaning we can well and truly comfortably take the piss out of each other. Trust me when I say, we are going to have some fun.”

Churi said, “As excited as I am to be launching this new show with two of my favourite people ever, there is a small part of me that is doing it just to get closer to Matty J. What a man. Seriously though, Laura, Britt and I have become so incredibly close over the last few years and our dynamic is unlike anything I’ve seen in the industry – get ready Australia!”

Mitch Churi will also continue to host The Night Show on KIIS 1065 and KIIS 101.1.

THE PICK UP will launch nationally on January 30 and can be heard on KIIS 1065, KIIS 101.1, KIIS 97.3 and Mix102.3 from 3-4pm.
