The Nova Network announced that Marty Sheargold will depart the Kate, Tim & Marty drive show on Friday 11 September.
With an impressive career, spanning a decade with the Nova Network, Marty joined Nova 106.9’s breakfast show alongside Tim Blackwell and Meshel Laurie in 2010. The following year the trio became Nova’s national drive show, with Kate Ritchie joining Blackwell and Sheargold in 2014 to form the successful Kate, Tim & Marty drive show.
Paul Jackson, NOVA Entertainment Chief Programming & Marketing Officer said, “Marty has had a fantastic 10 year career with Nova, initially in Brisbane breakfast and then as part of the iconic Kate, Tim & Marty drive show. We would like to thank him for his contribution to the network, the laughs and great radio moments, and wish him well for the future. We look forward to announcing who will be joining Kate and Tim in drive in the coming weeks.”
Kate, Tim & Marty has been the number one national drive show across Australia for 26 consecutive surveys. During their time on air, the team have won seven Australian Commercial Radio Awards (ACRA) – Best Networked Program in 2015, Best On Air Team in 2016 and 2017, Best Syndicated Australian Program and Best Networked Show in 2018 and Best Networked Program and Best Syndicated Program in 2019.
Marty Sheargold said, “I’ve had a fantastic ten years with the Nova Network, having worked with buildings full of talented and dynamic people. I’d like to thank Tim and Kate for their support of my decision and wish them continued success with the show. Now feels like the right time for me professionally to keep challenging myself and to embrace future opportunities with renewed vigour and enthusiasm.”
Sheargold will be heard on the Nova Network’s Kate, Tim & Marty Drive show until Friday 11 September.
An announcement regarding who will join Kate Ritchie and Tim Blackwell, on the Nova Network’s national drive show, will be announced in due course.
