The reality stars, and real-life besties, will host the 03:00 – 06:00 slot on Saturday and Sunday, taking over from comedian Neil Green who moves to daytime to host Sunday 14:00 – 18:00.
East Coast Radio’s Programming Manager Zane Derbyshire said in a press statement: “When I first saw them on My Kitchen Rules SA I knew that they had something special and I wanted to see how we could work with Minnie and Tee to develop them into radio stars. We will initially place them in our weekend training slot from 3-6am, but I am sure they will soon work their way up!”
Speaking about the opportunity, Minnie said it will be life-changing. “Our lives are about to change, I’m so excited about the growth that lies ahead. A lot of people have contributed to where my career is now and their support is truly heartfelt. Don’t forget that your dreams are valid.”
While Tee added: “I’m super excited to start this new chapter in my life. This is the type of thing you dream about when you’re kids and to see it manifest is honestly amazing.”
