Abbie Chatfield quits Hit Network radio show

Abbie Chatfield has stepped away from her Hit Network radio show Hot Nights, saying the show drained her and that she “simply wasn’t enjoying myself day to day in that environment.”

Chatfield started the evening show in January, 2022,  and has championed a number of local artists through the show’s Australian Made segment.

She will be staying with SCA, and focusing on her podcast It’s A Lot with Abbie Chatfield on LiSTNR, which attracted more than 220,000 listeners in July, being ranked #18 in the Australian Podcast Ranker for the month.

“I’m really happy with my decision and super proud of myself for letting this role go,” Chatfield said.

“I simply need to put my energy into projects that bring me joy and that energise me, rather than draining me.

“It’s also time to give someone else a go who would enjoy and appreciate the opportunity more than myself. I have so much on, and daily radio takes up so much time. I simply wasn’t enjoying myself day to day in that environment.”

SCA chief content officer, Dave Cameron, said: “For personal reasons, Abbie Chatfield has made the decision to step away from Hot Nights, her national radio show on the Hit Network. Abbie’s last show will be today.

“We are pleased to say that Abbie will remain with SCA, and we look forward to continuing to support the ongoing growth of her extraordinarily successful podcast, It’s a Lot with Abbie Chatfield, published on LiSTNR.”

An announcement regarding the Hit Network’s evening show will be made soon.
