Nova 91.9’s Ben & Liam take the mickey out of former employer
Former triple j Breakfast hosts Ben & Liam have submitted their votes for triple j’s Hottest 100 of the Decade countdown.
The Nova 91.9 presenters appear to be gibing, however, by voting for CHR tracks rather than tunes that are likely to do well in the countdown.
Over their three years with the national youth broadcaster, the pair attended many a triple j-supported festival and interviewed stacks of artists.
But their votes in the countdown are exclusively commercial hits, with artists including Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Pitbull, Kesha, Taylor Swift, One Direction and Ed Sheeran appearing.
The pair posted the votes on their share Instagram with the caption” “You guys gotcha votes in yet?” before Liam added; “Dang! Forgot to add Old Town Road”.

Their fans, who are a mix of Nova and triple j listeners, appeared confused.
“Are these some Nova 91.9 songs that I’m too triple J to understand?” said one.
“This looks like a Nova listeners voting card,” said another.
“I know you guys sold out but this is ridiculous,” accused one.
