He’ll also be unleashing KISSTORY classics on the KISSTORY station every Saturday 1300-1700, and bringing the weekend bangers to the nation every Saturday from 1700-1900 on KISS before Majestic takes over for KISS Nights.

Hailing from Liverpool, this platinum awarded artist has achieved in excess of 250 million streams and sold over 1.5 million singles in the UK alone. Beginning his career hosting a dance show on Radio City, Anton has gone on to play huge sets at festivals including Tomorrowland and Creamfields as well as being invited to play across the world from Ibiza to the USA and Australia.

KISS Content Director, Rebecca Frank said “Anton is the perfect person to take our signature weekend party vibes to the next level across the KISS Network. He knows how to read the radio crowd so well, and the KISS team are already huge fans and friends of his. We can’t wait to welcome him properly to the squad”.

Anton Powers said “I'm an obsessive listener of KISS & KISSTORY, always have been. I love what the station does & what it represents, so to now be part of the family is a long-standing dream coming to fruition. I’m very thankful & honoured to be joining the amazing team and I cannot wait to broadcast to the amazing KISS listeners every week playing the biggest & best new dance music as well as cramming in those current bangers & some sneaky KISSTORY gems too. To say I’m excited is an understatement, I am literally bursting to get going!”

KISS has been going through a year of major reinvigoration, with the launch of the new KISS Breakfast Show hosted by Jordan Banjo and Perri Kiely and the assembling a new specialist squad for KISS Nights.
