Best mates and radio nerds, Jimmy Smith (main photo, left) and Nath Roye (right) started their radio careers in 2015, and have since gone from strength to strength after finding their home for the past three years on Hobart’s Hit100.9.
According to the Xtra Insights Hobart Survey, Jimmy & Nath were voted the number one breakfast show in 2021.
The pair have also been nominated for six Australian Commercial Radio Awards (ACRA) since their radio debut, taking home Best Radio Show Podcast in 2019 and Best Community Service Project in 2020.
“To dear parents driving their kids to weekend sport, hungover one-night stands sneaking away in a morning Uber, and tradies clocking some overtime on weekend rates, we are here for you, let us comfort you, let us bring you your delicious, tasty, carb-loaded weekend breakfast!” said co-host, Roye.
Smith added, “I’m looking forward to my two favourite things, weekends and breakfast and can’t wait to share that with everyone across Australia!”
SCA’s content director of national shows, Sonder Novak-Booth, said the network was “so excited” to introduce the Hobart radio duo to the rest of Australia.
“The boys have the sort of chemistry that comes with being best friends for years, and they make friends out of listeners too – you can’t help but be caught up in their antics,” she added.
“Their ability to connect with listeners and make them laugh is second to none. Waking up on a weekend has never been more fun or funny, lookout Australia, they’re coming to your city!”
Jimmy & Nath’s Executive Producer, Grace Garde, will continue to produce both Jimmy & Nath’s Hit100.9 breakfast show in Hobart, and Jimmy & Nath Up Early across the Hit Network or via the LiSTNR app.
