Kate Ritchie will return to breakfast radio, joining Nova’s Sydney breakfast team Fitzy & Wippa, from Monday 13 March.
From Monday the show will be called Fitzy & Wippa with Kate Ritchie.
A talented broadcaster, actor and author, Kate has spent 10 years as an integral part of the Nova Network’s on-air line-up, the last eight years as co-host of Australia’s #1 Drive show alongside Tim Blackwell and Joel Creasey.
No stranger to breakfast radio, Kate co-hosted Nova 96.9’s Sydney breakfast show alongside Merrick and Rosso for several years.
Kate says, “I am so excited to be joining Fitzy and Wippa in the very competitive breakfast slot. I’m a huge fan of the show and I’ve been great mates with the boys for years.
“The past eight years on Drive has been an important part of my life but I’m thrilled to take on this new challenge by returning to breakfast radio in my hometown. I can’t wait to wake up Sydneysiders beside two of the industry’s much loved breakfast announcers.”
Fitzy & Wippa said, “We’ve been annoying Kate around the office for over ten years, now we get to do it every morning. We are excited for our audience to hear how funny Kate thinks we are. Nova listeners have always loved Kate and now she’ll be served up every weekday. Please enjoy your breakfast.”
Fitzy & Wippa with Kate Ritchie launches on Monday 13 March from 6am on the Nova 96.9 in Sydney and will be heard around the country on the Nova Network around the country from 6pm to 7pm.
The show can be streamed live via the Nova Player or you can catch up with the show’s daily podcast.
