Jack Laurence

Known on air as JK, Jack is the anchor for Hughesy and Kate, and hosts the iHeartRadio Countdownon the KIIS Network. Jack has worked in the radio industry for the past decade, starting in community radio on the Gold Coast. After 12 months, he decided it was time to get paid to do what he was loving, and moved to Lismore to work at ZZZ FM as the drive announcer and audio producer.

After a year and a half he took a leap of faith and give up his full time job to take on the role of on air floater between Sea FM Gold Coast and B105 Brisbane. Sea FM on the Gold Coast is where he would spend the next 6 years of his radio career; in this time, he would work mid dawns, weekends, produce a national regional drive show and weekend TV show The Benchwarmers, and fill in across all timeslots on air.

Eventually, he became the 12-4pm presenter for four years, winning back to back ACRAs for Best Music Personality 2011 & 2012. At the end of 2014 he was asked to move to Adelaide to anchor the new breakfast show on the soon to become Hit107, and after 12 months he moved back to the Gold Coast and took a year away from radio.

At the beginning of 2017, he returned to radio, joining Hugshey and Kate on the KIIS Network and hosting the iHeartRadio Countdown on Sunday nights.
