KISS and Hits Radio join up for BRIT Awards show
KISS and Hits Radio will be broadcasting live from the BRITs this year with presenters from both networks joining together for a special show.
‘Live at the BRITs’ returns as a three hour show broadcast from 7-10pm on Wednesday evening. Hits Radio’s Sarah Jane Crawford and KISS’ new signing Tyler West will join to host the programme that will feature interviews with some of the event’s performers and nominees, as well as the biggest tracks from this year’s BRIT nominees.
The show is sponsored by YouTube Music, who are the official music app for the 2019 BRIT Awards. It will go out across all stations on the Hits Radio network, as well as across KISS and heat radio. Highlights will also be broadcast on Absolute Radio and featured on heatworld.
Complementary to the live show, KISS presenter Swarzy will be on the red carpet. Ahead of the event, KISS Breakfast’s Tom & Daisy will present Backstage At the BRITs from 3-7pm, featuring insights into the event.
Dee Ford, Group Managing Director Radio said “The BRIT Awards is the biggest night for UK music, and our influential brands KISS and Hits Radio will offer unique access to the exclusive event to millions of listeners. It’s such an exciting time for commercial radio our listeners love the music industry’s artists and our recent acquisitions and launches including Scala Radio and Greatest Hits Radio means Bauer Radio’s offering to brands and listeners alike is stronger than ever.”
