polly harding

Radio Host, Media Personality and Podcaster

A self-proclaimed hippie, lover of outdoors and a bit of adventure, Polly is a farm-dwelling Kiwi and can be heard on NZME’s ‘The Hits Drive with Matty & PJ Show’ every weekday afternoon from 3-7pm.

Polly remains a favourite in Australia, as popular host of KIIS Network Breakfast on the Jase & PJ Breakfast show, ending in 2020. Polly began her radio career in 2011 at ZM in New Zealand as an intern, and then went on to read news. Polly quickly proved her talent as a creative communicator and engaging voice by moving onto hosting national evenings and daytime. She also established herself as a sought-after host including regular television appearances on NZ’s ONE Breakfast show as an entertainment reporter. In 2015, she teamed up with Jase Hawkins and together they delivered a National Drive show which saw them nominated for Best Non-Breakfast show at the NZ Radio Awards two years in a row. Along with other regular TV appearances in Australia and New Zealand, Polly appeared as a regular guest host on Channel 7’s House of Wellness show, for their lifestyle and beauty segments.

After 3 years of living and loving life as a Melbournian, Polly decided home was calling and relocated back to NZ in April 2020, and for a while there broadcast her breakfast show with Jase from her farm-home studio.

In May 2022, Polly launched her own podcast, The PJ Podcast, where she chats to well-known Kiwi’s and Aussies about all things life.

With a strong online following, Polly has collaborated with a number of brands she feels aligned to, including Visit Ruapehu tourism, Jeuneora Skincare, Kathmandu, Hello Fresh, Dyson and Watties, where she brings her own unique style and personality to the content she creates.

Polly and her husband BJ welcomed their first son, Charlie, in August 2022.
