The Nova Network’s on-air teams around the country will continue to broadcast their shows during the two week survey break.
NOVA Entertainment’s teams recognise the important role radio plays during this challenging time, to not only inform and entertain, but also to provide some normality and consistency for listeners during a time of continual change.
Nova’s breakfast teams in each state will continue to support local businesses, the community and clients, providing the latest updates and information, as well as delivering a laugh and much needed escape during this difficult time.
Nova’s breakfast shows and workday announcers around the country, Kate, Tim & Marty in Drive and Smallzy’s Surgery at night, will continue to broadcast their shows from Monday 6 April.
NOVA Entertainment’s Chief Programming & Marketing Officer, Paul Jackson, said, “Listeners turn to us during significant events for companionship and to hear familiar voices. Our listeners need us right now, to help them feel ‘normal’, whatever that now means.
“There is a strong desire as humans to feel like we’re a part of something and we’re hearing from so many of our listeners (most in isolation) how much it means to them to still be able to wake up and continue to listen to their favourite shows throughout the day.
“Our role is not only to keep them informed but also to be their escape and distraction from all of the anxiety currently filling our news feeds. Our environment is changing so rapidly that it is important to our announcers to continue this role during the break.”
