Australian Radio Network (ARN) has announced the full national line-up for 2018 on the KIIS network, including a new evening entertainment show.

Celeb HQ will air nationally from 7pm to 8pm, right after Kyle & Jackie O’s Hour of Power, and feature all the latest gossip from Hollywood and home with Zoe Marshall and John ‘JC’ Caldwell, while Craig ‘Lowie’ Low will also contribute special news and features from his base in LA.

Marshall has worked in the media for the past 10 years as a host on radio and TV, and as an online contributor. She is also host of The House of Wellness on Ch7Two every Sunday.

Previously one of the hosts of KIIS FM’s 3PM Pick Up, Marshall is married to NRL player Benji Marshall.

Caldwell is the resident entertainment reporter for the KIIS FM network and Kyle & Jackie O, while Low is an award-winning Australian comedian, TV and radio host and writer.

ARN also revealed that The Thinkergirls national evening show won’t return to the KIIS network in 2018.

Duncan Campbell, national content director at ARN, said: “This announcement completes the unveiling of a new strategic direction for the KIIS national network that has been in planning for the past 12 months.

“KIIS is a vibrant network, and this is an exciting evolution for the night schedule with the focus on celebrity news, entertainment and fresh on-air teams.

Celeb HQ is going to be a fun, irreverent and exciting new nights show, and I am pleased to welcome Zoe Marshall back to KIIS as she teams up with our resident entertainment reporter ‘JC’ and ‘Lowie’.

“This new national evening line-up will strengthen and re-energise our offering across the network to be even more competitive in all markets next year and beyond.”

“I would like to thank The Thinkergirls – Stacey June and Kristie Mercer – for being part of the KIIS team for the past two years. They have delivered a uniquely entertaining show to a loyal audience and we are working together to explore opportunities for the future.”

The announcement follows ARN’s recent unveiling of the first phase of its transformative 2018 strategy for the KIIS network with new national drive show Will & Woody and new brekkie show Jase & PJ for Melbourne’s KIIS 101.1 station.
