The Hit Network is rolling out two brand new shows for its weekend line up – Lucy & Nikki, and the Hot Hits with Nic Kelly.

The announcement:

The Hit Network today announced two new shows for its national weekend line up, featuring Nic Kelly, and hugely successful podcasters Lucy Jackson and Nikki Westcott from the Happy Hour with Lucy & Nikki podcast.


Hit Network’s very own music devotee Nic Kelly will heat up Saturday nights, bringing his extensive music knowledge to the airwaves in this dedicated music show. It will be the new go-to show for the latest music news, hottest new tracks and interviews with the industry’s best up-and-coming names.

Reflecting on his new show, Nic said: “It has been a lifelong goal of mine to create a music-focused national radio show. Music is a never-ending search for something that connects to you, it’s a universal language.

“Australian music is so rich, diverse and exciting and I can’t wait to chat with incredible homegrown artists and spotlight their new music each week alongside the big international hits that matter.”


Hosts Lucy Jackson and Nikki Westcott from the very popular Happy Hour with Lucy & Nikki podcast have landed on the airwaves with their very first radio gig. The Saturday night show will bring a killer playlist and all the LOLs to the weekend.

Real and unfiltered, the girls will discuss all the things that would usually be locked-up in your friends’ group chat. With plenty of banter to make sure Saturday nights are hitting the vibe, it’s the best new show for the ultimate ‘pres’ playlist.

“After years of creating our podcast, Happy Hour with Lucy & Nikki, we are so excited to be adding radio hosts to our creds.

“We can’t quite believe that the Hit Network is trusting us with our own national radio show, but we do know that we are going to have a lot of fun making it. Watch this space Australia, we’ll be hitting the airwaves soon!” said Lucy and Nikki.

Head of hit metro content, Amanda Lee, said: “We are excited to announce two new shows to the stellar line up across the Hit Network, which will elevate Australia’s Saturday nights to the ultimate party.

“Nic Kelly’s music knowledge is second to none and he has an uncanny ability to uncover the next big hits. Listeners will want to tune in to his The Hot Hits show to stay on top of all the biggest music news. Meanwhile, Lucy and Nikki have established a huge audience for their podcast, and they are now set to light up the airwaves with their hilarious chat. Also famous for their love of music festivals, listeners can expect to hear their killer playlist to fire up the night!”
