Radio presenters Fitzy and Wippa, hosts of the breakfast show on Nova 96.9 FM in Sydney, are heading to the UK joining 106 JACK fm Oxford.
The duo, who host a large networked in their native Australia, and are heard on over 60 stations across the country, will join the station on Sunday evenings between 6pm and 8pm. It will mark the first time they’ve been heard on FM radio outside Australia.
JACKfm’s new Content Director Joe Thomas told RadioToday: “We’re delighted to have Fitzy and Wippa host their first show in the UK here on JACK. Their show is full of top quality, engaging content that’s relevant to listeners across the world. To celebrate, we’re getting Dame Edna to throw another cork hat on the barbie.”
Fitzy said: “We love the UK, we just hope the Brits will catch on to the Aussie sense of humour. Our group programme director in Australia is British and it has taken him two years to get our humour.”
