Tim Blackwell, one of the Nova Network’s most respected announcers and music broadcast journalists, celebrates 20 years with NOVA Entertainment today!

Having spent 20 years in key roles with some of the Nova Network’s biggest shows, working alongside high profile announcers and interviewing some of the biggest artists and personalities, Tim got his start in radio on Nova 100 Melbourne as a late-night announcer in 2001.

The following year he was given an opportunity every music lover and broadcaster would envy, an interview with the Red Hot Chili Peppers and to be the first voice on air for the launch of Nova’s new Perth station, Nova 93.7.

A move to Sydney to host Nova 96.9’s local drive show preceded Blackwell joining Nova 100’s heritage breakfast show, Hughesy & Kate, as an anchor.

Learning the ropes from the two respected announcers, Blackwell’s abilities were recognised with an offer to host Nova 106.9’s Brisbane breakfast show. The show relocated to Sydney in September 2011 to became Nova’s ACRA award-winning national drive show.

The Kate, Tim & Joel drive show was formed when Joel Creasey joined Kate Ritchie and Tim Blackwell on 14 September 2020.

Blackwell’s experience and passion for connecting audiences with the music artists he had met and interviewed since he joined Nova in 2001, took shape with the launch of his podcast series Introducing with Tim Blackwell.

The podcast was an opportunity for the audience to delve deeper into and support some of Australia’s most talented artists and bands that Tim had become mates with over the past 20 years. A second series of the podcast has just launched on the NOVA Entertainment Podcast Network (NEPN).

Tim Blackwell said, “20 years with the same company on paper sounds a little dull, I get that! But during my time I’ve had so many different roles, worked in just about every state in Australia, headed overseas for interviews and had a ball the whole time… still waiting for that gold watch though!

“Sitting behind a radio desk has given me a front-row seat with some of the biggest personalities in the country, it’s a strangely intimate job spending hours a day in an air-tight room with people, you make life long friends.”
