Hit Network 2020: Extends Tommy & Carrie drive, Ed staying with Hughesy

• The Hit Network has confirmed its networked 2020 line-up that is broadcast on 43 stations.

Hit’s drive duo Carrie Bickmore and Tommy Little return in 2020 with their Carrie & Tommy show now broadcasting from 3.00pm-5.00pm across Australia, adding an extra 30 minutes to their daily show.

After filling in for Kate Langbroek in the second half of 2019 on the second of the network’s two drive shows, Ed Kavalee will join Hughesy permanently in 2020 with Hughesy & Ed broadcasting from 5.00pm-7.00pm weekdays.

Langbroek has extended her stay in Italy with her young family for another year and will continue to be a regular part of the show as she has been this year.

Hit’s combined drive shows collectively reach more than 2.4 million people a week and are number one for people aged 18-39, women aged 25-54 and 18-39*.

Ash London will return in 2020 with her national show, Ash London Live, hot on the heels of hosting this year’s epic RNB Fridays Live stadium tours, and has been extended for an extra hour from 7.00pm-9.00pm.

Danny Lakey hosts his irreverent Danny Lakey Late Show, and will be on-air between 9.00pm-12.00am.

Late night owls are well looked after from midnight through to 3.00am with charismatic duo, Tom & Olly, also part of the 2020 Hit Network line-up.

Finally, Those Two Girls will return to the early morning breakfast slot from 5.00am-6.00am. Lise Carlaw and Sarah Wills have attracted an audience who can handle their energy and sass between 5.00am-6.00am weekdays.

Head of the Hit Network Gemma Fordham said: “We are really proud of our national line up. We are unashamedly committed to talent who are connected to our tribes and communities. We feel fortunate that every team is so full of life and delivers radio entertainment that gives our listeners a boost across their day and makes them feel included and up to date with everything that is important to them and their families.

“I’m excited Ed Kavalee is a permanent addition to drive in 2020 as he and Hughesy have a history and chemistry that is a joy to listen to. We are all obsessed with Kate’s Italian adventure and are living vicariously through her! She will continue to keep us updated via the phone across the year. Our drive double act of Carrie and Tommy and Hughesy and Ed is a sensational offering.”
