The national Kiis Network will have a new late night show, “Up Late with Zach and Dom”, from Monday, Feb. 6.
The show will feature Zach Mander and Dom Fay, who previously hosted a national show on Saturdays via ARN’s ‘podcast to broadcast’ strategy and most recently fronted “Summer Brekkie” on Brisbane’s Kiis 97.3.
The show will run from 10:00 p.m. to midnight (AEDT) on Mondays to Thursdays.
It replaces “Mitch Til’ Midnight”, which was hosted by Mitch Churi, who now hosts the earlier national nights show on Kiis, as well as appearing on the new “Pick Up” show at 3:00 p.m. alongside Laura Byrne and Brittany Hockley.
The duo said they can’t wait to connect with shift workers, taxi drivers and insomniacs across the country each night.
“Both of us are also very excited to be the first ever Kiis FM national show to come out of Brisbane, and are aiming to do our home city proud,” they added. “Brisbane has given Australia so many great things over the years, from the music of Powderfinger to the genius of “Bluey”. We can’t wait to tarnish this wonderful reputation with our new show.”
Duncan Campbell, chief content officer at Kiis’ parent company ARN, added: “It’s great to see Zach and Dom continue to grow within the ARN family and it’s another example of our podcast to broadcast strategy working as they move from Kiis Saturdays to the late-night slot. They are such a dynamic duo with enormous potential and we look forward to bringing their energy to a national audience.”
The duo previously went by “Collective Noun”, which was also the name of their podcast.
