Brittany Hockley and Laura Byrne's surprise career move: 'This is wild'

The Bachelor stars announced the exciting news on Sunday.

Former Bachelor stars Laura Byrne and Brittany Hockley have managed to turn their reality TV appearances into successful careers, with the pair hosting the popular podcast Life Uncut since 2019. The pair released a book called We Love Love in October last year and Laura also runs the successful Aussie jewellery brand ToniMay.

Brittany dipped her toe into radio late last year as a fill-in host on The Kyle & Jackie O Show to replace Jackie 'O' Henderson when she took leave for ‘health reasons’, and now listeners can continue to get their fix.

The best friends announced on Sunday they have landed their very own radio show, along with popular KIISFM host Mitch Churi.

Fans will be able to tune in to their KIISFM show The Pick Up from 3-4pm every weekday starting on Monday January 30.


Brittany described their career move as a “pinch me moment”, and gushed on Instagram about her co-hosts.

“Been out here trying’ to pick up for a while…so seemed like a natural progression,” she began. “Well this is a pinch me moment if I ever did have one! So excited to say that the three of us will be in your ears nationwide, Monday to Friday from 3-4pm!

“This is genuinely my dream team and there’s no one else I would rather have amazingly deep, meaningful and very public conversations with.”

The star added that the Life Uncut podcast would still continue releasing episodes twice a week, and thanked her fans for all their support.

Laura also shared the news on Instagram, telling fans she was excited to be working with Brittany and Mitch on this new platform.

“I thought my days of picking up were over…BUT THIS IS WILD!!! I’m so excited to be able to share with y’all that I will be co-hosting The Pick Up with these two fabulous humans,” she gushed.
