Radio Hosts / Media Personalities

After 3 years of hosting Southern Cross Austereo’s National early morning pre-breakfast show, the girls finally decided it was time for a sleep-in, and in May 2021 moved to a new afternoon daily show, aptly named ‘Halfternoons’. The show to help listeners get through their mid-afternoon slump with a lighthearted chat about all that’s caught their attention over the last day. Their show airs daily at 2pm on LiSTNR.

2020 saw the girls launch ‘Forty’, the podcast, which is a weekly series celebrating the life lessons and stories of popular Australian women in their forties. It is the equivalent of a little black book for the middle years, and after much success and a growing loyal following the girls are now in the fourth season of Forty.

Blasting onto the Australian media scene together in 2017, Lise and Sarah are a duo with a difference. Lise and Sarah were co-hosts of the Gold Coast Breakfast show on the HIT Network for 1 year before paring back to focus on their National Early Breakfast show in 2020. The real-life friends are on-air and on-stage presenters who walk the line between smart, self-deprecating, and irreverent; making them sought-after MCs and guest speakers.

Present and past clients include:

  • Frankie 4 Footwear
  • Ezidebit
  • Before You Speak Coffee
  • Business Chicks (interviewing high profile personalities such as Julie Bishop, Sarah Jessica Parker and Leigh Sales, and hosting various 9 to Thrive conference stages)

  • Penguin Books Australia (Zoe Foster Blake’s book launch)

You asked. We delivered.

Based on the hundreds of questions you sent our way, we've compiled the ultimate peri/meno Q&A, turning today’s episode of FORTY into an audio version of ‘Dolly Doctor’ (the mature edition).

And we’ve called in the big guns - Dr Naomi Potter is an accredited menopause specialist from the UK, having trained with the Royal College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology in London. The 45-year-old mother of five is a member of the British Menopause Society and is passionate about providing holistic care to women in mid-life.

Not even conflicting time zones could stand between us and the barrage of questions we had for Dr Naomi - from what to expect, to symptom management, HRT, libido, what blood tests to ask for, weight gain, chin hair, hot flushes and, of course, RAGE.

So, strap in, tag the women in your life who are in hormonal flux, and let’s get knowledgeable!

This is us. Lise on the left, Sarah on the right.

We are 41 and 40 respectively (this photo was taken with Jesus-levels of excellent lighting.)

Ours is a friendship that extends far beyond pretence, and the four walls of a radio/podcast studio.

👯‍♀️We’ve seen each other bare faced and bare bottomed
👯‍♀️We use phrases like ‘’Scuze nips" when sending one another photographs of braless garment try-ons in Zara changerooms.
👯‍♀️We slurp out of one another’s mugs of tea, to detect where Sarah’s heaped teaspoon of sugar has landed.
👯‍♀️We have the same lunch at the same time every day, and populate our joint snack drawer with Turkish Delights and lentil chips for when our tuna rice bowls don't quite cut it (spoiler alert: daily)
👯‍♀️ Sarah protected Lise from 'Fifi' - Australia's largest cane toad - when a deep-seated phobia threatened to see Lise destroy an entire studio during an on-air wildlife show-and-tell
👯‍♀️Lise volunteered to put herself in a rip current to save Sarah from a radio stunt that would see her facing her fear of the open ocean
👯‍♀️We laugh together every single day without fail and we get to call it work.

Thank you for joining us on this ride.
