KIIS 101.1 is excited to announce the evolution of The 3PM Pick Up in 2017, welcoming high profile personalities Rebecca Judd and Yumi Stynes to host alongside Monty.
Known for her frank, fresh opinions and sense of fun, Katie ‘Monty’ Dimond joined the KIIS in 2014 as a co-host on The 3PM Pick Up and she also has a huge following on her women’s lifestyle website Show + Tell, the “home of conversations that connect women”. While juggling her media commitments, Monty also loves being a mum to two young boys, Baxter and Arlo.
“I’m so pumped to work with Yumi and Bec this year. I love these girls and what they do and think our 3pm audience will have a real hoot listening. I suspect it will be like eavesdropping on some juicy conversations. It’s fair to say the three of us don’t have many boundaries”, said Monty.
A household name before establishing her popular blog Rebecca Judd Loves, mum-of-four Rebecca Judd will make her radio debut as part of the new 3PM Pick Up line-up.
Rebecca is one of Australia’s busiest and best known personalities and can now add radio host to her long list of accolades including being a Channel 9 television presenter, model, speech pathologist, wife, mother and blogger.
Rebecca said: “I’m so excited about joining the girl gang on The 3PM Pick Up. This will be my first foray into radio, I haven’t done anything like this before! I have the pleasure of being able to speak to so many different women through Rebecca Judd Loves so it’s going to be great to be able to engage with them alongside Monty and Yumi on so many topics each week.”
No stranger to radio, Yumi Stynes will return to the airwaves on the KIIS Network after a break for maternity leave.
Yumi said: “I have four kids and a rock n roll heart and, like so many other parents, I’m knee-deep in lunches, homework and schoolyard politics. I still love to laugh though, and feel so privileged to be able to share the humour, the pain and humanity of life on The 3PM Pick Up.”
Throughout the year, Monty, Rebecca and Yumi will be joined by other celebrity interviewees that audiences will love. Monty will be joined by co-host Rebecca Judd every Monday and by co-host Yumi Stynes each Tuesday to Friday.
