Nazeem Hussain, Christian Petracca and Clint Stanaway join Melbourne’s KIIS 101.1

Nazeem Hussain, Christian Petracca and Clint Stanaway have joined Melbourne’s KIIS 101.1’s new breakfast show.

The announcement:

A comedian, an AFL superstar and Melbourne’s top sports presenter walk into a radio station… what happens next is anyone’s guess, but we know it’s going to be good!

The Melbourne born and bred trio Naz, Christian and Clint will be joining the city’s newest and freshest breakfast show, Jase & Lauren in the Morning on KIIS 101.1 when the show kicks off on Monday August 9.

They’re experts in their field and if there’s something happening in Melbourne in comedy, sport or the news – these three will know about it before anyone else and will be letting KIIS 101.1 Breakfast listeners know too.

Comedian, actor, television and radio presenter and, believe it or not a former tax consultant, Nazeem is not only the King of Melbourne comedy, he’s the reigning King of Moomba, and at a time when the world could use a lot more laughs, he’ll be the perfect way to get the day started.

“I’m really looking forward to having a laugh with Jase and Lauren! I’m a comedian so – naturally a morning person. I can’t wait to over share with my favourite city on earth! Except when I’m touring interstate”, said Nazeem.

AFL Rules Footballer, Christian, the Demons hottest player and top tip to win the AFL Brownlow medal this year, will be keeping listeners on track with all the latest AFL stories around town. And in Melbourne there’s always plenty, and Petracca will know and share it first.

“I’m super stoked to be the man on the ground and joining Jase & Lauren in the Morning to talk all things footy. I’m also looking forward to the banter with Lauren. She knows her AFL.” said Christian.

Rounding out the team is Clint Stanaway, weekend sports presenter on 9News Melbourne. Renowned for somehow breaking stories before they break, there’s not a sports story in the city that Clint is not across. Clint joins KIIS 101.1 as the full-time news and sports presenter on Jase & Lauren in the Morning.

“I couldn’t be happier landing a job where I get to deliver news and in particular sports news, to the city that I grew up in and love. After a decade behind the news desk at Nine, I’m pumped to hit the mics with a team I know everybody is going to love. I’m a big talker and love to laugh, so I think I’ve found the perfect breakfast home.” adds Clint.

And here’s a fun fact… All three support the mighty Melbourne Dees (but we won’t hold that against them.)

It’s been a big week of announcements for KIIS 101.1 with Lauren Phillips newly announced as the new co-host with Jason ‘Jase’ Hawkins. A genuine and relatable Melbourne girl to her core, Lauren will bring her local knowledge, humour and upbeat warmth to listeners each morning, starting conversations about all the things that matter to Melburnians. Together with their love and passion for Melbourne, Jase & Lauren in the Morning will be fun and fresh, keeping listeners in the loop across all the news around town.
