Melbourne woke up to three new voices on the radio this morning as the new brekkie team for NOVA100 Chrissie, Sam & Browny decided to hit the studios a day early.
The trio – made up of Chrissie Swan, Sam Pang and Jonathan Brown – had been meant to officially start in the breakfast time slot on Monday, but went for the surprise factor and started the banter in a pop-up show this morning from 7-9am.
Louise Higgins, NOVA Entertainment chief operating officer said, “We were so confident in the preparation, and with the quality of the show, that it made sense to go early.”
Rohan Brown, Nova 100 program director said, “We couldn’t be happier with the demos and todays ‘pop up’ show. The team already have great chemistry and can’t wait to deliver a show that lives and breathes Melbourne every day.”
And at the end of their show, Swan asked the team how they think they went, before quipping “actually, we don’t care”.
“We’re doing it for Melbourne, and Melbourne’s been quite positive,” she said.

It’s only the first show for the trio, and here’s hoping the new team will take some risks with content, something Swan reckons the media needs more of because no one really knows what works anymore.
“I don’t think anybody knows 100 per cent what works in media and what doesn’t these days,” she told B&T in November last year.
“Audiences get fatigued with the same old same old and that’s the key – mix it up.”
