In a surprise move, Hughesy and Kate have left KIIS to do Drive on the Hit Network in 2018

Carrie Bickmore and Tommy Little (pictured below) who were tipped to take over from Hamish and Andy on the HIT Network's national Drive show will still be heard from 3.00pm - 4:30pm each afternoon followed by Hughesy and Kate from 4:30 - 6:30pm. 

SCA says, "The extended Drive show programming will broadcast to all 43 Hit Network radio stations, reaching 4.6 million listeners each week (3 million metro and 1.56 million in regional Australia), with a broad reach across all key audience segments, particularly women of all ages."

Amid a raft of other changes at ARN, that network announced that the've poached ‘Will & Woody’ aka Will McMahon and Woody Whitelaw from SCA to replace the departing Hughesy and Kate, saying, "As a result of these changes, Dave ‘Hughesy’ Hughes and Kate Langbroek will not return to the network in 2018."
Gemma Fordham, Hit Network's Head of Content said, "We are delighted one of radio's most enduring and hilarious duets, Hughesy and Kate, are joining our new Drive line up for 2018. The commute home is when we let go, relax and leave the work day behind and the Hit Network is committed to entertaining all people on their way, whether it is at 3pm, 5pm or 6pm. To be able to also confirm Carrie and Tommy, a show which just gets better and better, really does give the Hit Network and its audience the best of both worlds in 2018."

On the announcement, Grant Blackley, CEO of SCA said "I'm absolutely thrilled to welcome Hughesy and Kate to the SCA family. Both are consummate professionals and wonderful entertainers and will be a great addition to the Hit Network's already strong national Drive line-up with Carrie and Tommy".
