The Kate, Tim & Joel drive show launches this Monday 14 September, 3pm to 6pm on the Nova Network.
Three of Australia’s most respected personalities, Kate Ritchie, Tim Blackwell and Joel Creasey will come together on the Nova Network to bring a conversational cheekiness to the drive shift. Joel Creasey will join Kate and Tim as the newest addition to Australia’s renowned drive show, with a combination of the day’s hot topics, the best of digital and online and their unique benchmarks and games.
Featuring the segments that listeners have grown to love over the past six years, including Monday’s Mailbag, The Wednesday Wheel and the highly competitive Quick Draw, the team and their new co-host Joel Creasey will continue to deliver everything their audience have come to expect and more.
Kate Ritchie said, “We’re all keen to get into the studio on Monday… Get Joel out of the house regularly, kick off the show and start making KTJ radio instead of just talking about it!”
Tim Blackwell said, “I’ve just told Joel to spend the time leading up to our first show listening to Cardi B’s WAP on repeat. If that doesn’t break him we’ll know he’s ready for the gig!”
Joel Creasey said, “Can’t wait to start Kate, Tim & Joel on Monday. Is there any research I should do? A book I should read? Is there an online masterclass I can sign up to? Just kidding. That sounds exhausting… I’m sure someone’s going to tell me… right?…”
