The trio will replace Nova 100’s outgoing breakfast teamChrissie, Sam and Brownie.

Ben & Liam built a following during their three years as hosts of triple j’s breakfast show and have become the most listened to breakfast show in Adelaide since joining Nova 919 in 2020.

Ben Latimer, Head of Programming for Nova, spoke about both success to date and the future potential of Ben, Liam & Belle.

We knew that Ben & Liam were talented radio broadcasters and had great potential when they joined the Nova Network three years ago,” said Latimer. 

They had built an incredible following during their time as triple j’s national breakfast show before moving to Nova 919 in Adelaide, with their long-time producer Belle

Over the past few years, proud Melbournian Belle has taken a more prominent role on-air and, combined with Ben & Liam’s chemistry, compelling stories and quick humour, the breakfast show has delivered outstanding results in a short time. We can’t wait to share their unique show with Melbourne listeners.”

Ben Harvey said he can’t wait to start the new show in Melbourne.

We are all so grateful for the opportunity to wake up with the people of Melbourne every day – we love the city and can’t wait to call it our home,” said Ben.

Melbourne has Australia’s most competitive radio market and we are looking forward to proving ourselves against some of the biggest shows in the country.”

Liam Stapleton said he’s excited to officially bring Bella onto the on-air ensemble. 

 “We’re so stoked to be dropping the ‘Producer’ part from Producer Belle’s title. She’s done the hard yards with us for the last five years and we can’t wait to have her on-air more,” said Liam.

Belle moved from Melbourne to Sydney, to Adelaide and back to Melbourne for the show. We introduced her to our hometown and now she’s going to return the favour

We can’t wait for Melbourne to fall in love with her and put up with us!

Over the past three years, Ben & Liam and the team have constantly looked at ways to entertain and support their listeners and the community. 

Ben and Liam spent five days living and broadcasting from a glass box in Rundle Mall to create awareness and raise funds for mental health and, with the help of their listeners, they raised $100,000 for Lifeline

COVID-19 was at its worst in Australia just weeks into Ben and Liam starting with Nova 919. They introduced themselves to the audience by delivering groceries and essential items to listeners in need. 

Recently, Ben, Liam and Belle supported the historic first AFLW Showdown by leading a celebrity pre-showdown game on the Adelaide Oval.

As well as hosting Adelaide’s #1 FM breakfast show, Ben & Liam has been heard around the country on Sunday mornings for over two years and in August 2021 Ben & Liam’s Lunchbreak was introduced in Sydney and Melbourne. 

Belle Jackson said, “I can’t wait to return to Melbourne after five long but incredible years away and, while coming back home is exciting, to be doing it on-air alongside Ben and Liam is a dream come true.

I have loved every minute of ‘looking after’ the boys as their producer. I can’t wait to step into this new role with them and teach them a thing or two about my hometown.”

Ben, Liam & Belle will continue to have a presence in Adelaide, hosting a local early breakfast show from 6am to 7am. 

Nova 919’s new Adelaide breakfast show will be revealed shortly.
