Shane Lowe is host of the very popular breakfast radio show in Adelaide “Lewis and Lowe” on Nova 919. Co-hosting with Dylan Lewis, the show has one of the most unique sounds and style of radio programme in the country and was most recently a finalist for Best Comedy Segment at the 2015 Australian Commercial Radio Awards. Shane previously hosted his own afternoon show on Nova and was nominated for “Best Music Personality” in 2010 and 2011 at the Australian Commercial Radio Awards.
Shane’s radio career started a day out of High School. He volunteered at a Perth radio station and just a week later was given his own show. Since then he has worked nationally broadcast shows around the country alongside the likes of Cal Wilson, Ed Cavalee, Ryan Shelton, and Akmal Saleh.
Shane often steers the ship at live events, such as Nova Adelaide’s listener parties, Cash Car Carribbean events and the Launch of Subaru’s new 2015 Subaru WRX. It’s not only events that see Lewis and Lowe leave the studio; the Adelaide streets come alive when they take their breaky show on the road in Nova’s iconic Big Red Bus. Amongst his live MC roles, Shane has hosted the main stage at the Clipsal 500 After Concert Series, The Gorgeous Festival in McLaren Vale, the Fruchocs South Australian Awards in Rundle Mall and has presented alongside Dylan Lewis at the ACRA’s.
Shane is a natural in front of the camera as proven by roles in several Australian television shows as well as his many Nova video segments and sketches, not to mention a weekly “What’s On” segment on Channel 9 News in Adelaide. Shane Lowe has been described as a talent ninja; not because of his predominantly black coloured wardrobe but because of his ability to pleasantly surprise people with other skills they didn’t know he had. One such skill is Shane’s singing ability which has been praised by big industry names; most recently, James Blunt, who commended Shane on his rendition of Sia’s ‘Chandelier’, stating it was better than any performance of the song he had seen as a judge on Channel 7’s X-Factor. Shane is also a talented writer. His off-beat, creative, funny articles were featured weekly in Adelaide’s street press publication, The City. His comedy writing skills and talents can be heard daily on his radio show in the form of musical parodies, comedy sketches and characters he has created to be part of his radio programme. One such character is “Astrology Aaron” the very vague, clueless but colourful astrologist who became a hit amongst listeners. Astrology Aaron has had world famous psychic medium John Edwards in stitches during a recent one-on-one astrology reading. Shane extends his support to various charities and is a proud supporter of The Hutt Street Centre Adelaide and The Leukaemia Foundation.
You can hear Shane with Dylan Lewis on Adelaide’s Nova 919 breakfast show “Lewis and Lowe” from 6am-9am weekdays, as well as their national Sunday night show on Nova around the country.
