92.9 Triple M Perth has announced that rising radio star Katie Lamb is joining Triple M’s Rush Hour from November 7. Lamb will join current host Andrew ‘Embers’ Embley to co-host The Rush Hour with Embers and Katie and as a big West Coast Eagles supporter, there will be no shortage of footy chat and plenty of banter. Just don’t ask about her shocking AFL tipping record this year.
It was at 92.9 that Lamb got her start in radio in 2011, working the dawn shifts before making the move to another network where she stayed for 10 years. While there she covered every possible job in radio, starting as a weekend announcer and panel operator, then made her way to programming before jumping back on air as the Afternoons announcer and Operations Manager. Lamb knows her way around a radio station both on air and behind-the-scenes.
When not working, Lamb can be seen showing off her division 1 netball premiership medal for City Beach, rating the best chicken schnitzels in Perth via her Instagram, and playing any form of competitive sport, including beer pong.
Triple M Perth Head of Content, Tim Arnold, said: “Katie is a future star of Perth radio. I can’t wait to hear her in the environment she belongs – front and centre as part of a full show, driving you home for Perth, from Perth.”
“I also want to thank the amazing Dani Shuey who has done an exceptional job filling in with Embers for the last few months. She’s a superstar who I am so happy to have in the Triple M family. “
Katie Lamb said: “I can’t wait to join the team at Triple M, I feel I’m so ready for this next chapter and new journey in my career. I’m beyond excited to get on air and have a laugh with Embers.”
