HIT105 AM National Radio Show and SeaFM Breakfast
Introducing our awesome Ambassador duo – Sarah Wills and Lise Carlaw – or you may know them as, Those Two Girls. They joined our Westpoint Autos Ambassador team in 2017 and have driven many of our vehicles (often matching!) over the years, helped host charity events and been thrown around a skid pan or two on our driver experience days.
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 their 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.
To get to know them even better, check out the interview below!
Greatest Achievement/ Proudest Moment?
Professionally - landing not one, but two radio jobs with a best friend, sharing a stage with the likes of Sarah Jessica Parker, Julie Bishop and Leigh Sales and producing sell-out events that resonate with women like us. Personally – teaching our kids how to successfully load a dishwasher and remembering to moisturise our elbows.
What does being a Westpoint Autos Ambassador mean to you?
As proud Brissie girls, it’s an honour to be part of Westpoint’s extended family. We were never ‘car people’ but over the past four years we now consider ourselves to be experts and can confidently pair a blue tooth and make solid recommendations to friends and family. WPA for life!
Pineapple on pizza. Yes or No?
It’s a hard yes from both of us.
What's your favourite car to drive and why?
Lise: Nissan Xtrail for the family; Hyundai Kona for the zippy city whip.
Sarah: Nissan Pathfinder all the way. I never thought I’d need a seven-seater given I only have two children but that boot space is a game-changer.
What was your first car?
Lise: I had a red Mitsubishi Colt with vinyl seats that would burn the underside of my thighs in summer. No air con, pretty much an oven on wheels, but gee I felt cool in it!
Sarah: A 1995 chilli red Ford Festiva named ‘Festy’.
What aspect of the Westpoint Autos ethos speaks to you the most?
You know that feeling when your local coffee shop remembers your name and order? It’s just like that! The warmth of a family-owned business combined with personalised service. Can’t beat it.
If you could join any past or current music group which would you want to join and why?
Backstreet boys. Give us a choreographed dance any day of the year.
If you could drive anywhere tomorrow, where would you go and why?
The Great Ocean Road, Thelma and Louise style!
What motivates you to work hard?
Each other and our families.
What's your favourite movie and why?
Lise: I can’t go past The Sound of Music. It’s the soundtrack of my childhood. Liesl is goals.
Sarah: Gone with the wind. I love the grandeur of it.
What's one fun fact about you?
Lise: We finish…
Sarah: each other’s sentences.
