The Hit Network will celebrate International Women’s Day tomorrow with a national metro breakfast show led by its female talent, in what is being dubbed an Australian radio first.
Anchored by Fox FM’s Fifi Box and 2Day FM’s Em Rusciano in Sydney, the show will air from 6am to 9am across metro Australia, and will be streamed live on hit.com.au and via Facebook Live.
The show will also feature Abby Coleman (Hit105), Heidi Anderson (Hit92.9), Cat Lynch (Hit107), Hit Network national show hosts Ash London, Carrie Bickmore, Sam Frost and Constance Hall, as well as Hollywood actress and UN Women Goodwill Ambassador Nicole Kidman.
The Hit Network’s head of content, Gemma Fordham, said the network is proud to interact with so many women on a daily basis, and believes it is important to celebrate women and highlight its dedication to driving the conversation around equality on International Women’s Day.
“We think it’s important we use our platform and voices to raise awareness of the many serious issues around inequality that women face globally,” she said.
“We want to help all women to have the belief that they are just as smart, strong, authentic, and humorous and empowered as their male counterparts. We need to work together with all the great men in our lives to make this happen.”
Box said she was excited to get to share a studio with The Hit Network’s female broadcasters to celebrate International Women’s Day.
“Having only ever broadcast on the radio with men, it will be a revolutionary show that I can’t wait to be a part of,” she said.
