Best mates and co-hosts on HIT Network’s 104.7 CANBERRA FM breakfast show, Ned & Josh are a young duo on the rise. Kicking off their Capital Hill stint in December 2017 the boys have already endeared themselves to their ACT audience despite having to learn about the city from scratch.
Ned’s originally from Tassie and Josh is a South Australian. And although they’re only 23 and 28 respectively – the guys have earnt their broadcasting stripes hosting HIT Southwest in Bunbury W.A for a couple of years.
Back in 2015, Ned & Josh started writing and producing video sketches together, but after realising that a trip to the writer’s room of Saturday Night Live was unlikely, they decided to record a radio demo in the hope of gaining some feedback. Josh had already been working extensively in regional radio and Ned is a radio nerd, so it seemed like a good move.
The feedback they got was to pack their bags for QLD and start the national Midnight-Dawn show across the regional HIT network. They spent their weekdays for the next six months doing the evening show and their weekends with a pre-Breakfast shift on the Gold Coast’s 90.9 Sea FM.
Over the New Year break they were given the opportunity to take on a three-week stint on national Summer Breakfast over the regional HIT Network. This was so successful that the boys were sent west to establish the Ned & Josh breakfast show across HIT FM WA’s network of stations. And now they’re conquering Canberra.
Like most guys their age, Ned & Josh are up for adventure – which so far includes climbing a ship’s mast, flying a stunt plane and cycling 500km on a tandem bike to Kalgoorlie, from which the guys are still recovering!
