The almost-daily offer comprises all things culture, sports, entertainment, while pushing thought-provoking commentary from the hosts’ own lives and experiences.

In addition to this success, it also sits as #1 podcast in New Zealand and in the top #20 shows in Australia across Spotify, a statistic that is no small feat, as well as regularly charting in the UK and USA markets.

The first year has seen “The Morning Shift” team list many achievements, with some of the most notable being the significant viral content contributions from The All Blacks and global rapper T-Pain.

Spotify has also recognised the position that “The Morning Shift” holds in the New Zealand market and has come on board to offer further support and amplification opportunities via its video podcasting capabilities, allowing listeners and sponsors alike a deeper opportunity to connect and engage in the daily content.

“The Morning Shift” is supported by Kiwi-owned company YOUKNOW Clothing and lists current show sponsors including Chemist Warehouse, Speights, Spark, 2XU, Sorted alongside many more household brands that have become regular partners.
