:: Spotlight :: The Hot Hits Live from LA hits Aussie airwaves

By: Carmine Pascuzzi

Australians can soon get their VIP pass to the hottest music and entertainment as, every week from Sunday, December 6, presenter Andrew G will be joined by special guests and international superstars as he launches ‘The Hot Hits Live from LA’ presented by Optus on Australia’s airwaves. Live and direct from star-studded LA on a Saturday night, The Hot Hits Live from LA with Andrew G, will air across the nation every Sunday afternoon, from 2.00pm (EDST).

Produced by MCM Media, The Hot Hits Live from LA will feature four hours of the hottest hits, biggest superstars and latest celebrity gossip, all mashed up into one hugely entertaining show. Broadcast across Austereo’s Today Network and regional partners, online and on Optus mobile, this is Australia’s access all areas pass to the home of Hollywood.

Kicking off the first show, Andrew gets up close with Snoop Dogg and Jared Leto, plus Vanessa Amorosi and reality TV star Kendra. Andrew G said, “I can't wait to put Australia in direct contact with so many of their favourite artists. Having this show taps us directly into the main artery of the entertainment capital of the world. A city where they all seem to pass through at one stage - be they a band, an actor, director, model or athlete; from Europe, the States or even Australia - they all seem to come through LA, and we'll be there giving Aussies the inside scoop on the goings on. We have a great team ready to broadcast this show, and I can't wait to get going."

As well as in-studio interviews and performances every week, a roving reporter will be delivering the ‘LA Lowdown’ - the inside scoop straight from the streets, celebrity haunts, music and movie events of LA. The ‘VIP Sleaze Report’ will be first with the scandalous stories making tomorrow’s headlines. If it’s bizarre, funny, entertaining or glam – and it’s happening on a Saturday night in LA – this show will be covering it live.

The premiere program of the The Hot Hits Live from LA presented by Optus will air from 2.00pm-6.00pm (EDST) on Sunday, December 6 on Austereo’s Today Network, including 2Day FM in Sydney, FOX FM in Melbourne, B105 in Brisbane, SA FM in Adelaide and 92.9 in Perth, and a broad network of regional stations across Australia. The show will be available on Optus Mobile from Tuesday, December 8.

The launch was held at Simmer On The Bay in Sydney recently and many celebrities and guests associated with the respective companies involved enjoyed a great night. Entertainment was provided by Daniel Merriweather, Phrase, Ladyhawke, Emily Scott and Hoops.
