The 18 year ‘Hughesy & Kate’ partnership is taking a hiatus, with Dave Hughes confirming the news on the pair’s HitFM drive show yesterday while introducing his new co-host.
“Kate Langbroek will be making regular appearances on the show, but right now she is on her way to Sicily,” he told listeners.
Kate relocated to Bologna, Italy, with her husband and four kids in January, and had been continuing to co-host the show (despite the time difference) from a home studio.

But now she’s decided to step away from the mic until 2020.
Dave’s new co-host is none other than axed 2Day FM breakfast star comedian Ed Kavalee, who joined Hughsey for the first time on the airwaves on Monday, just three days after the shock canning of his show.
“Welcome! You’re going to be hanging out with us until the end of the year buddy,” Dave said as he introduced Ed Kavalee to the listeners.
“Thank you guys. It’s great to be here. I’m very excited,” Ed responded.
