Byron Cooke is back on breakfast radio in Melbourne. Byron stepped in to host KIIS 101.1 breakfast this morning (Jan 19) and will back behind the mic until February when the Jase & Lauren in the Morning show returns.
Jase Hawkins is expecting his third baby any day now and it made sense for KIIS FM to delay the return so he can spend quality time with his family.
Byron said, “I’ve been mates with Jase for a long time and I’m a big fan of Jase and Lauren’s show. I’m sure my early morning calls will be received very badly by them both, but it’s all in the name of keeping everyone updated on what’s happening – especially any baby news from Jase.”
Byron, who left FOXFM at the end of 2020, is looking forward to the short stint saying, “Stepping in to KIIS breakfast while Jase and Lauren are on a break is a dream. I get my fix of live radio for a few weeks, before resuming my other great love – sleep ins.”
Byron stepped away from commercial radio following his five year stint on FOX FM breakfast, to create his independent podcast ‘The Byron Cooke Show’.
