ARN has appointed Ryan Jon (pictured) as KIIS 101.1’s workday announcer commencing January 11th 2021.
Born and bred in Melbourne, Jon has been delivering his radio magic on Summer Breakfast this month with Lauren Phillips and will remain on air for KIIS 101.1 in 2021. Phillips (and the Herald Sun) broke the news this morning in Melbourne. Jon will be on air from January 11 when Jase and PJ return, a week before radio survey starts.
Jon is a multi-award-winning radio host who has been part of breakfast shows in Perth, Canberra and regional Australia. He also co-hosted national weekend breakfast for the Hit Network. He is a podcaster, digital creator and produces the She’s On The Money podcast with Victoria Devine on ARN’s iHeartRadio Australia.
Jon is part of the Marchmedia talent stable and was actually Brad March’s first client.
Of joining KIIS 101.1 Jon said, “I’ve really enjoyed being here at KIIS doing Summer Breakfast so to be asked to join the on air team and continue the fun into 2021 is really a dream come true. After years of travelling and working on radio around Australia, it’s wonderful to be back home in Melbourne doing a job I love.”
ARN’s chief content officer Duncan Campbell said, “Ryan is an experienced announcer who brings his passion, energy and enthusiasm to everything he does, which is why he’s going to be a great addition to KIIS 101.1. Ryan’s appointment is another example of ARN’s commitment to investing in the best talent to deliver live and local audio that listeners love.”
Jon can be heard on Melbourne’s KIIS 101.1 weekdays from 9am – 3pm from January 11.
