He’s known for his stints on The Bachelorette Australia and then The Bachelor Australia, and now Matty Johnson has been named as a co-host for Nova 96.9’s breakfast show over summer.
Johnson (pictured above, right) will join regular Nova 96.9 breakfast contributors Matt De Groot (pictured above, left) and Sarah McGilvray (pictured above, middle) on the airwaves from Monday, who will fill in for Fitzy & Wippa for two weeks.
After gaining radio experience with regular interviews during his reality TV dalliance, Johnson filled in for a week on Gold Coast’s Sea FM breakfast radio show this year.
Nova’s Summer Breakfast with Matt, Sarah and Matty J will be his first metro breakfast role.
Commenting on his new role, Johnson said: “For me, Fitzy & Wippa stand at the pinnacle of the radio industry, so to be asked to fill in from them over summer is such a huge honour.
“I couldn’t be happier to work with a station I’ve grown up listening to and alongside two absolute legends, Matt and Sarah. This is such a ‘pinch myself’ moment – if you told me 12 months ago I’d be doing this, I’d have said you were crazy!”
