Brisbane-based duo Those Two Girls will present breakfast across the Hit Network nationally from December 2, for two weeks!
They have been wowing the country all year with their (super) early-morning national show (5am to 6am weekdays) on the Hit Network and now Brisbane’s own Those Two Girls, Lise Carlaw and Sarah Wills, get to set their alarms a teeny bit later when they host the National Breakfast Show across all Hit stations Australia during December.
The opportunity to host the national breakfast show is another indication that Australia has fallen in love with the Brisbane besties and their self-deprecating, irreverent and playful humour.
“It’s an absolute honour to get the call-up, and so rewarding our friendship and humour seems to be resonating across Australia. We have a ball together during our national early breakfast show, so to play and chat to a couple of million people leading into Christmas has us pinching ourselves,” said Lise and Sarah.
“At the end of the day, we’re simply real-life besties having a laugh together. On the downside, we’re told the cameras will be turned on in studio during that stint, so we can’t roll in to work in our PJs - boo!”
The move is also another example of how Brisbane radio is punching well above its weight with two national shows now broadcasting out of Southern Cross Austereo’s Brisbane studio – Those Two Girls and comedy duo, Collective Noun, who are on-air across the Hit Network each weeknight.
You can catch Those Two Girls 6am-9am weekdays from Monday December 3rd to Friday December 14th on hit105 and across Australia on the Hit Network.
About Those Two Girls - Sarah & Lise
Sarah was born in Bundaberg and lived on Bougainville Island in PNG from 2-6 years old. Her family moved back to Bundy and she lived there until she was 16. They then move on to Brisbane, where she finished high school. After school she studied Theatre at QUT for four years, then went back and studied journalism post-grad. She officially started her radio career in her mid-30s, after giving up getting into the media and entertainment industry in her 20s – due to rejections. From 2008, she was working in and out of PR agencies “if you'd told me then that ten years later I'd have a national radio show with a best friend (whom I wouldn't even meet until 2014), I'd have been a bit stunned,” she says. Sarah is married with two daughters and lives in Coorparoo. Lise was born in New Caledonia to adventurous and hard-working French parents. Her family moved to Australia when she was two months old, where her Mum and Dad bought pineapple and avocado farms on the Sunshine Coast. Her family moved to the Western suburbs of Brisbane when she was five years old. She attended Brigidine College at Indooroopilly and completed her university studies at QUT and Griffith. Lise has had a very interesting career, from walking the runways overseas to event management and copywriting. She is married with two sons and lives in Eatons Hill.
