As expected, Lauren Phillips has been announced as the new co-host of the KIIS FM breakfast show in Melbourne alongside Jase Hawkins. The Channel 9 Weekend Today weather presenter will join Jason ‘Jase’ Hawkins as co-host from August 9. Phillips replaces Polly ‘PJ’ Harding who is returning to New Zealand where her fiance lives.
