Southern Cross Austereo has added the radio program Collective Noun to its national late nights, broadcasting from 11pm-1am (Monday to Thursday) straight after Ash London Live.
The young trio of Dom Fay, Zach Mander and Michael Parente are Collective Noun and have, over the past 12 months, been regular content providers for news.com.au. They have 60 million views online with their sketch videos and have grown their Facebook following to almost 100,000.
“Late nights is such a great time slot as you can have a lot of fun! We want to make our show feel like you’re on Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Tour…but you know, with less people disappearing!
“We should clarify, listeners of our show won’t disappear one by one followed by catchy but ominous tunes sung by Oompa Loompas. We don’t anticipate playing any songs by Oompa Loompas at all. Actually you know what, don’t use this quote. We’ll come up with something better.”
Hit Network’s Head of Content Gemma Fordham said, “Over the past month we have added some brilliant local and national shows to the Hit Network lineup for 2017, and finally the last piece of the puzzle, or should I say the golden ticket, is in place.
“We have been big fans of Collective Noun for a long time now, and we are so pleased to be able to bring our listeners another cracking show!”
