Kiwi media personality Mike Puru will join Stacey Morrison for a new look afternoon drive show on The Hits radio station next month.

Puru, a former host of The Edge radio and The Bachelor reality television show, has recently been delivering the weather on Newshub, and brings more than two decades worth of industry experience to his new role.

"I'm extremely excited to be joining such a great team of people," said Puru.

"There's nothing more satisfying than great banter, good laughs and great music between friends, and I can't wait to get started."

Puru and Morrison will also be joined on The Hits Drive by a cast of guests, including singer songwriter and television presenter Anika Moa.


Morrison is looking forward to working with her new co-host and says Moa's vibrant personality will be a great addition to the revamped show.

"Mike is someone I've always liked and admired so I'm excited to be working with him, and with my friend and super mama Anika on board too, we've got an awesome show on the way," she said.

Moa is pleased to be joining the team and excited to be doing what she does best.

"I'm so happy and thrilled to be doing what I love the most," said Moa. "Talking, entertaining and listening to my kind of music. The Hits is da bomb."

Listeners can tune in to catch Morrison and Puru and guests on The Hits Drive show at 3pm from May 6.
