Former Hit Perth breakfast host Ryan Jon joins Kiis 101.1 Melbourne

Australian Radio Network (ARN) has secured the services for a former Southern Cross Austereo radio host Ryan Jon for a new Kiis 101.1 Melbourne workdays program.

Jon, who departed his role as host of Hit92.9 breakfast for family reasons in July of 2019, will remain on-air for ARN in Melbourne after his current stint on Kiis 101.1 summer breakfast wraps up.

Jon has been hosting summer breakfast with Lauren Phillips, and said he’s excited to be a full-time part of the team and return to his home city of Melbourne.

“I’ve really enjoyed being here at KIIS doing summer breakfast so to be asked to join the on air team and continue the fun into 2021 is really a dream come true,” he said.

“After years of travelling and working on radio around Australia, it’s wonderful to be back home in Melbourne doing a job I love.”

Jon is also a podcaster, digital creator, and hosts his own show on Australian online streaming network Ticker TV.

ARN chief content officer Duncan Campbell said: “Ryan is an experienced announcer who brings his passion, energy and enthusiasm to everything he does, which is why he’s going to be a great addition to KIIS 101.1.

Ryan Jon will be heard on Kiis 101.1 weekdays in Melbourne from 11 January 2021.
