Chrissie Swan, Sam Pang & Jonathan Brown for Nova 100

Staff Writer


More pieces of the Melbourne breakfast puzzle fall into place. With Chrissie Swan already locked in for Nova 100, next it was who was going to join her? Comedian Sam Pang and former Brisbane Lions player Jonathan Brown will be part of the new team for 2016.

They will take over from Meshel & Tommy on Nova 100. As we know already Meshel is heading to KISS 101.1 to join Matt Tilley in the New Year and Tommy is exiting radio completely.


Louise Higgins, NOVA Entertainment COO said, “We have made a bold move in creating a show that has a real point of difference, is distinctly Melbourne and will appeal to a broader demographic ensuring its success with all Melbourne audiences.”

Sam Pang is part of Ten’s Have You Been Paying Attention? and for five years he co-hosted Triple R’s Breakfasters and has also appeared hosting ABC Local radio shows at different times.

Sam Pang, “I genuinely can’t believe Nova gave me a job. I’m so thrilled to be working with Chrissie Swan – other than Gabi Grecko and Mark Latham I can’t think of anyone I’d rather do radio with – and Jonathan Brown, who played 256 games of AFL and now he’s got five mornings a week to tell me all about them.”

Jonathan Brown was the former captain of the Brisbane Lions until January 2014, when he retired from the game. He and his family have called Brisbane home for years but are making the move to Melbourne.


Jonathan Brown said, “I’m ready to drag my backside out of bed again after 18 months in retirement. I can’t wait to get some motherly advice from Chrissie and for Sam to bring my coffee in every morning.”

Chrissie Swan said, “I’m a huge fan of Sam Pang and I’m really excited to be working with him and Browny – what’s not to love? I’m not too across the footy but Browny loves The Bachelor so we’ll be fine!”
