KISS Network details new show launches for 2022

KISS has announced a refresh of its weekend programming, with some new shows announced for 2022.

Sam Darlaston & Omah Howard will be moving up to weekend mornings from 8-11am, while Tatum McGreal is a new addition to the weekend schedule, hosting afternoons from 2-5pm. She will continue to host Early Breakfast.

Meanwhile, globally renowned DJ and producer, Anton Powers is to take on a second show KISS at weekends. Already bringing the weekend party vibes every Saturday from 5-7pm, Anton will host an additional show at 5-7pm on Sundays, delivering the biggest new dance tunes and latest KISS bangers – served with a sprinkling of KISSTORY goodness. All changes come into effect from this Saturday 8th January.

Elsewhere on the KISS Network, KISS Fresh host Esi is taking on a new daily show from 3-7pm on the station in addition to her Rap show on Sunday nights, while Henrie Kwushue is joining KISS Fresh to host a new weekly show every Thursday evening 7-9pm. A recent MOBO nominee for ‘Best Media Personality’, Henrie joined KISS in early 2021 to host Weekend Early Breakfast, and her KISS Fresh show will see her present the best in new music and have the hottest and most interesting names in culture passing through.

KISS Content Director Rebecca Frank said “With an amazing ear for new music and what’s hot now, Henrie is going to be a brilliant addition to the KISS Fresh line-up and we’re really excited for her new show as well the new daily programme show from Esi later this month.

Since joining the station in 2020, Tatum has become a real listener favourite so we’re delighted to extend her to 7 days a week, while Sam & Omah promise the best way to wake up at weekends. Plus with another additional show from the amazing Anton Powers on Sunday, it’s all going off at KISS!”

The changes are announced as Swarzy Macaly departed the station at the end of 2021.

Rebecca added “Swarzy has been an amazing member of the KISS squad for the past 5 years, and we wish her well with her next adventure.”
