Paul Jackson, NOVA Entertainment’s group programme director said, “Greg is one of the outstanding talents in the UK radio industry. I’m thrilled that he is joining the Nova team. His passion for music, his infectious humour and love for Sydney will instantly endear him to our listeners.”

“Coming to work at Nova is my dream scenario, I can’t believe it’s actually happening. My nightmare scenario is it isn’t happening, and arrive to find it’s a Fitzy & Wippa stitch up, they got in too deep and couldn’t turn back.”
