ARN today announce AFL premiership legend and Brownlow medalist, Dane Swan will join the show as a regular Footy guru every Monday morning commencing January 11th, 2021.
Affectionally known as “Swanny”, a laid-back larrikin with a unique sense of humour, Dane will bring his colourful personality and anecdotes to KIIS 101.1 breakfast show listeners.
In November 2020, Dane was a guest on Jase & PJ in the Morning and unexpectedly revealed that he and his partner, Taylor Wilson are expecting their first child in February. KIIS 101.1 listeners can expect to hear many more stories about his impending fatherhood.
Retiring in 2016, Dane is recognised as one of the greatest midfielders of the modern era. Drafted by the Collingwood Football Club in 2001 he enjoyed a stellar career winning the Brownlow medal in 2011 as well as the Copeland Trophy three times.
Swan said: “Joining Jase & PJ is the perfect fit for me, a great opportunity to make their mornings more intellectual and smarterer. I can’t wait to get started. I love to tell a story – I’ve got a fair few to share.”
Jason ‘Jase’ Hawkins said: “You never quite know what Dane will deliver and he’s everything I want to be… quick-witted, calm and good-looking. I’m hoping this will rub off on me the more time I spend with him.”
Polly ‘PJ’ Harding added: “He’s as Melbourne as they come; easy-going, quick-witted and one of those people that brings a bit of spice to the footy scene.”
ARN’s Chief Content Officer Duncan Campbell said: “Dane will be a terrific addition to Jase & PJ in the Morning. His AFL knowledge and insights combined with that unique sense of humour of his and laid- back style means he’s a perfect fit for the show and will create even more engaging local content for KIIS 101.1 breakfast listeners.”
Dane can be heard on KIIS 101.1’S JASE & PJ IN THE MORNING every Monday from January 11.
