The Nova Network will deliver a new sound for Australian radio and listeners, with two of the biggest names in the business to be heard across Melbourne and Sydney in workdays, from Monday 29 April.
Fans of Chrissie, Sam & Browny in Melbourne will continue the laughs with Matt Tilley from 9am, while Sydney listeners will be able to hear Kent ‘Smallzy’ Small following Fitzy & Wippa.
This new line up of personality, entertainment and great music will give listeners in each market even more reasons to start their workday with Nova.
NOVA Entertainment’s group programme director, Paul Jackson said: “NOVA Entertainment will be at the forefront of change, delivering a new sound in workdays from 29 April.
“We are giving listeners more reasons to listen across the day with one of the biggest radio announcers in Melbourne and the most highly respected music announcer in Sydney.
“We’ve put together the strongest line up in both states, from breakfast with Fitzy & Wippa and Chrissie, Sam & Browny to workdays, followed by Australia’s number one drive show – Kate, Tim & Marty.”
One of the most successful announcers of the past two decades, Matt Tilley will make his long-awaited return to Melbourne radio on a new station, in a new timeslot, on Nova 100.
Matt Tilley said: “It’s been nice to have a break from radio but I’m super keen to get back on and thrilled to be joining Nova.
“The fact that this shift fits in nicely with my parole conditions is purely coincidental.”
Matt is one of the city’s most successful radio announcers and is no stranger to Melburnians having spent over 20 years in breakfast radio on Fox FM, including 14 years at number one.
For six years Matt was co-host of Tracy & Matt in the Morning before joining The Matt and Jo Show in 2003.
The accomplished broadcaster and comedian will now deliver a new sound to mornings on Nova 100.
Complementing Matt during the workday, Troy Ellis will move to the new time of 12pm to 4pm in the afternoon.
One of the most respected radio announcers with over 24 years media experience, Troy spent 10 years working alongside Matt Tilley on The Matt and Jo Show and joined Nova 100 in February 2018.
Meanwhile, in Sydney, Kent ‘Smallzy’ Small (featured image) will make the move to mornings on Nova 96.9.
Smallzy has earned a global reputation in the music and entertainment industry for his close artist relationships and consistently engaging content.
Smallzy’s Surgery has been the number one national night show for more than five years, accruing 44 consecutive survey wins.
Smallzy will deliver the content in mornings that Nova’s audience has come to know and love from the experienced broadcaster over the past 15 years.
Listeners across Australia will also continue to hear Smallzy’s Surgery weeknights on the Nova Network.
Smallzy said: “I can’t wait to start entertaining the people of Sydney while they are working!
“As someone who grew up in Sydney I’m looking forward to the opportunities to connect to the local market, something that you can’t always do when you host a national show.”
With over 20 years of experience across multiple radio networks in various markets, Dan “DC” Cassin’s expertise in radio and music more widely will round out Sydney’s new workday sound from 12pm to 4pm.
Nova will deliver a new sound in workdays on Nova 100 in Melbourne and Nova 96.9 in Sydney from Monday 29 April.
