Jase & PJ is an Australian breakfast radio show hosted by Jason Hawkins and Polly 'PJ' Harding on KIIS 1011 in Melbourne. The show is syndicated in the night-time slot on the KIIS Network following The Kyle and Jackie O Show.[1] A highlights package is broadcast in New Zealand on ZM as a weekend breakfast show.


In October 2017, Australian Radio Network announced that Matt Tilley and Meshel Laurie will leave the station at the end of the year and will be replaced by PJ Harding and Jase Hawkins from ZM in New Zealand.

Polly 'PJ' Harding and Jason 'Jase' Hawkins moved to Melbourne from New Zealand where they have hosted drive on ZM since 2015.[2][3] PJ was called PJ rather than Polly on air because there was already a presenter called Polly on ZM's breakfast show (Polly Gillespie).

Previously, Hawkins has hosted breakfast on B105 in Brisbane, worked with Kyle and Jackie O and hosted the Hot30 Countdown.

In June 2019, Jase & PJ completed a 56 hour on-air marathon and aired from 6am Wednesday 5 June until 2pm Friday 7 June. Previously on ZM they completed a 51, 52 and 53 hour marathon.

As of 2019, Jase & PJ host a weekend breakfast show on New Zealand's ZM, having previously hosted a drive show on the network throughout 2018.[4]
