Kate Langbroek returns to Australian radio after two years in Italy

Kate Langbroek returns to Australian radio after two years in Italy

Kate Langbroek is returning to Australian radio after spending two years in Italy with her family.

Langbroek is set to co-host the 3PM Pick Up with Monty Dimond and Yummy Stynes from January 2021.

"After our family adventures in Italy, I'm looking forward to returning to magnificent Australia and ARN [Australian Radio Network] — and getting to speak my native language: radio," Langbroek said in an official statement.

"I can't wait to join the 3PM Pickup, I've missed eavesdropping on conversations I can actually understand and hanging out with like-minded friends, so naturally I am beyond excited to team up with those two Aperol Spritzes, Monty and Yumi, for some afternoon fun and funniness.

"I promise I won't be one of those infuriating people who returns from a stint abroad with an accent and entirely new vocabulary."

Langbroek is replacing the current co-host Bec Judd, who has chosen to take a step back from media.

"Bec Judd has been a fantastic contributor to 3PM Pick Up. The engaging conversation, real-life anecdotes and fun that she brought to the show will be missed, but we wish her well on her next endeavours," ARN's Chief Content Officer Duncan Campbell said.

Kate moved to Bologna in January 2019, with her husband Peter Allen Lewis and their four children, Lewis, Sunday, Artie and Jan.

She formerly hosted Hughesy & Kate remotely before taking a step back entirely.
