NOVA Entertainment announced that broadcasters Ben Harvey and Liam Stapleton, with their long-time producer Belle Jackson, will be Nova 100’s new breakfast show – Ben, Liam & Belle.

 Ben & Liam built a loyal national following during their three years as hosts of Triple J’s breakfast show and, since joining Adelaide’s Nova 919 breakfast show in 2020, they have made a big impact both on-air and on social media. Ben & Liam has consistently been the most listened-to breakfast show in Adelaide.

Ben Latimer, Head of Programming for Nova 96.9, Nova 919, said: “We knew that Ben & Liam were talented radio broadcasters and had great potential when they joined the Nova Network three years ago.

“They had built an incredible following during their time as Triple J’s national breakfast show before moving to Nova 919 in Adelaide, with their long-time producer Belle.

“Over the past few years, proud Melbournian Belle has taken a more prominent role on-air and, combined with Ben & Liam’s chemistry, compelling stories and quick humour, the breakfast show has delivered outstanding results in a short time. We can’t wait to share their unique show with Melbourne listeners.

Ben Harvey said, “We are all so grateful for the opportunity to wake up with the people of Melbourne every day – we love the city and can’t wait to call it our home. Melbourne has Australia’s most competitive radio market and we are looking forward to proving ourselves against some of the biggest shows in the country.”Liam Stapleton said, “We’re so stoked to be dropping the ‘Producer’ part from Producer Belle’s title. She’s done the hard yards with us for the last five years and we can’t wait to have her on-air more. Belle moved from Melbourne to Sydney, to Adelaide and back to Melbourne for the show. We introduced her to our hometown and now she’s going to return the favour. We can’t wait for Melbourne to fall in love with her and put up with us!”

As well as hosting Adelaide’s #1 FM breakfast show, Ben & Liam has been heard around the country on Sunday mornings for over two years and in August 2021 Ben & Liam’s Lunchbreak was introduced in Sydney and Melbourne.

Belle Jackson said, “I can’t wait to return to Melbourne after five long but incredible years away and, while coming back home is exciting, to be doing it on-air alongside Ben and Liam is a dream come true. I have loved every minute of ‘looking after’ the boys as their producer. I can’t wait to step into this new role with them and teach them a thing or two about my hometown.”

Ben, Liam & Belle will continue to have a presence in Adelaide, hosting a local early breakfast show from 6am to 7am. Nova 919’s exciting new Adelaide breakfast show will be revealed shortly.
