Woody+Will_2017_BLOG.jpgARN has announced the first phase of its "transformative 2018 strategy" including a new Drive show on the national KIIS Network, including 96FM in Perth.

'Will & Woody' (aka Will McMahon and Woody Whitelaw) - two-thirds of hit92.9's Breakfast team Heidi, Will & Woody in Perth - will move to the Drive session on ARN's KIIS Network in 2018. Both originally from Melbourne, Will & Woody will "bring their infectious personalities and humour, in a move designed to shake up and re-energise the all-important national Drive shift."

As a result of the change - and in a case of 'musical chairs' - Dave Hughes and Kate Langbroek will not return to the  KIIS network in 2018, but will move to Southern Cross Austereo's Hit network to replace the 'retiring' Hamish & Andy in the Drive slot.
ARN National Content Director, Duncan Campbell said: "Today's first phase of announcements is part of a new strategic direction that has been in the planning for 12 months and will see a re-energised and even more competitive ARN in 2018 and beyond.

"The signing of Will & Woody...is an exciting coup for ARN. We'll be sharing more details on the next phase of our strategy, developed to transform the network in 2018, in coming weeks."

ARN CEO, Rob Atkinson said: "These are really exciting times at ARN, as demonstrated by this first phase of announcements. We're not only reinforcing our #1 network position, but also confirming our commitment to further energise the ARN network by delivering the best-in-market talent, content, and commercial solution."
