Susie O’Neill takes a spin at Nova 106.9

Susie O’Neill has finally succumbed to the lure of the studio and joined the Nova 106.9 breakfast team full-time in 2019.

Susie took up breakfast broadcasting with the Nova team in 2015 but until now has resisted Ash, Kip & Luttsy‘s lobbying for her to embrace the five-day work-week.

The early starts aren’t an issue for this Olympic legend but working five days a week is a first for the swimming superstar, declaring on-air, “This is the first time I’ve ever had a full-time job! Well… working five days a week. I don’t want to offend people who actually work full time.”

The Nova Brisbane breakfast team celebrated Susie’s first full-time gig by strapping her to a human-sized lazy Susan.

The contraption was built for a Chinese New Year competition where listeners could spin Susie to win the chance to join them at a Chinese New Year dinner.

The Lazy Susan was then taken to the dinner where Susie was strapped in and spun to discover which of the five listeners would walk away with a $10,000 travel voucher.

After a solid spin, Susie landed on the edge of Spin Again/ Number 5, which saw listeners John and Sarah win the Eva Air sponsored $10,000 travel voucher.
