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.
