Life Uncut podcast duo land weekday gig on KIISFM

ARN’s best ranking podcast duo, Life Uncut’s Brittany Hockley and Laura Byrne will become a permanent fixture on the radio group’s KIIS network after being handed a daily afternoon radio spot alongside KIISFM host Mitch Churri.

The Pick Up with Britt, Laura and Mitch will join the KIIS network’s week day lineup, taking over the 3-4pm afternoon slot after the show’s previous lineup with Monty Dimond, Kate Langbroek and Yumi Stynes was axed at the end of 2022.


The new lineup marks the progression of ARN’s podcast to broadcast strategy, which last year saw Hockley and Byrne given their radio debut with a weekly Saturday show, the Life Uncut Radio Show.

The venture into radio followed the success of the former The Bachelor stars podcast show ‘Life Uncut’, which entered the Triton Digital Podcast Ranker top 10 in September 2021, and has since risen to a fairly consistent placing in the top 5.

Byrne said “I am so beyond excited to start The Pick Up with Britt and to have the brilliant Mitch Churi join us as a co-host. Over the past year, we have had a ball creating our Saturday show, but now we no longer have to bottle up all our stories and wait until the weekend to share them.

“As a mum who is usually in the car on the way to day-care pick up at 3pm, I really enjoy tuning into the radio at this time, and it feels surreal to now be a part of creating the content, keeping it fun, fresh and relatable.”

Hockley added: “I am so excited to be doing The Pick Up with two people I genuinely love dearly, Laura Byrne and Mitch Churi. The three of us are from different walks of life and are lucky enough to have worked closely together for years, meaning we can well and truly comfortably take the piss out of each other. Trust me when I say, we are going to have some fun.”

Mitch Churi commented: “As excited as I am to be launching this new show with two of my favourite people ever, there is a small part of me that is doing it just to get closer to Matty J. What a man. Seriously though, Laura, Britt and I have become so incredibly close over the last few years and our dynamic is unlike anything I’ve seen in the industry – get ready Australia!”

Mitch Churi will also continue to host The Night Show on KIIS 1065 and KIIS 101.1.
