SMASH! Announcer, Stephanie Monks says: "I am so excited about the launch of SMASH! While the idea of live TV is daunting, Marty and I are up for the challenge! This week we are all guns blazing, with some seriously awesome interviews and the much sought after Katy Perry tickets to give away.”

The Edge Programme Director, Leon Wratt says: “There’s a synergy between The Edge audience and FOUR viewers, and SMASH! will be the daily LIVE TV show where that audience watches, listens and engages.”
