NOVA Entertainment to partner with media agency Mindshare

NOVA Entertainment will have a new media agency partner, Mindshare, with Carat, who have held the NOVA account since 2017, falling short during a competitive tender process.

Mindshare will work across NOVA Entertainment’s entire portfolio including the Nova and Nova Podcast Network, Smooth FM, FIVEAA and Star 104.5.

Adam Johnson, NOVA Entertainment’s Chief Growth Officer said:

“We have been so impressed with the calibre of agency partners we spoke to as part of this process and it has underlined how Australia’s media industry is alive and well and full of great people and thinking. We’re hugely excited to embark on this exciting new chapter with Mindshare, a powerhouse agency with a proven commitment to innovation and delivery for their clients. We look forward to working alongside the team to further grow audiences across all of NOVA Entertainment’s audio offerings.”

Maria Grivas, CEO of Mindshare Australia & New Zealand said:

“Audio plays a unique role in Australians’ lives and NOVA Entertainment has incredible talent on, and off, the air. Throughout the process, we were excited by NOVA Entertainment’s appetite for transformation and growth. Our teams are thrilled to bring Mindshare’s approach towards this to NOVA Entertainment, delivering strategic thinking and innovation across their portfolio of leading radio, podcast and live music brands.”

The partnership commences on June 1, 2024.
