Nova 106.9 radio host Zoe Marshall brought her brand of candid, relatable and unscripted content to the latest episode of Rising Stars with Craig Bruce.
Marshall co-hosts Sunday breakfast show Meet The Marshalls alongside husband and NRL star Benji Marshall.
“We are a very unconventional married couple,” she told Craig. “The show is a very voyeuristic look into our relationship.”
Attempting to convince the Brisbane Broncos player to join the radio game was “like pulling teeth” according to Marshall, who used a rather unconventional method to get the network’s attention.
“I knew the way to get us on to Nova,” she started. “I held on to this experience of when I went to Byron Bay and had a breast massage.” When the pair were given the chance to demo in the studio, Marshall saw it as a perfect opportunity to throw Benji under the bus.
“I dropped the bomb about this guy rubbing my boobies,” she said, while watching her husband boiling in silence alongside her in the studio. “But we got a job in the end – that was the point.”
The fun continued as Zoe talked about her experiences filling in for Jackie O at KIIS, while also sharing some lewd content ideas that have frequently landed her in hot water. The presenter assured Craig that she doesn’t do it for “shock value”, rather, to express herself honestly to an audience.
“My greatest joy is connecting with people. The quickest way to connect is by sharing that stuff. We can cut three months of getting to know each other and just do it right now.”
