Southern Cross Austereo (SCA) has announced that the Hit Network’s night time hosts Angus O’Loughlin and Emma Freedman will finish up on its Hit30 program this week to take up new opportunities within the radio group.

O’Loughlin will return to Adelaide to join hit107’s breakfast show with Cat & Amos, having hosted a national night time show on the Hit Network for the last four years.

“I’m beyond stoked to be returning to Adelaide,” O’Loughlin said. “Friends, AFL, Coopers Pale Ale, Hahndorf and hit107. I can’t wait to get behind the mic every morning for breakfast with Cat & Amos.

“Growing up I secretly listened to night radio in my bedroom and idolised the format. When I was given the chance to get behind that microphone in Sydney, I had to leave home – I couldn’t pass up the opportunity.

“One thousand celebrity interviews later and a thousand dinner dates missed, I’m very ready to swap nights for brekkie and One Direction for Rory Sloane.”

Meanwhile, Freedman will remain in Sydney to join The Grill Team on Triple M, and will focus on sport, events and entertainment.

Freedman’s voice is already familiar on Triple M, having recently been a roving reporter for The Grill Team during the Rio Olympics and has occasionally filled in for hosts Matty Johns, Mark Geyer and Gus Worland.

Commenting on her new role, Freedman said she is very excited to join The Grill Team on a permanent basis.

“Breakfast radio is a place I’ve always wanted to work, and this is an incredible opportunity with a great team who have been super welcoming,” she said.

“Sport and laughs – I’m pumped for it!”

SCA also announced that Hit30 will be replaced with a new national night-time, music-based show, Ash London Live, hosted by none other than the lady herself.

London returns to the Hit Network having not so long ago hosted nightly countdown show Shazam Top 20.

The Hit Network’s head of content Gemma Fordham, said Ash London Live will be a must-listen for music fans in Australia.

“It will be everywhere, curating and breaking the best music on earth,” she said. “The show will be relatable, conversational and entertaining.”

“Ash is simply brilliant and I couldn’t be more delighted that she’ll be enhancing the Hit Network line up.”

London said she is excited to bring a new kind of show to night-time radio.

“Passionate music chat, unleashing and curating the best tunes in the world, and having a stack of fun while we do it,” she said.
