Nova 937 Program Director

Ben Latimer will hang up his acting boots following the announcement of a new full-time program director for Nova 93.7 Perth.

On Friday (Sep 27), NOVA Entertainment confirmed that Nova 96.9 Sydney operations manager Dave McClung is heading west to oversee content at the top-rating Perth station.

McClung appointment follows July’s departure of Daniel Underhill to rival station 96FM.

Latimer has been acting program director since he left the network, in addition to program director at Nova 96.9 Sydney.

“We are delighted to appoint Dave as Program Director for Nova 93.7,” said programming and marketing boss Paul Jackson.

“He has a thorough understanding of the Perth market as well as the Nova on-air and programming team locally and around the country.

“Over the past 13 years, Dave has gained extensive programming experience, across multiple roles within the business in Perth, Sydney and Adelaide.

“He is highly respected by the Perth team and is a great example of our focus on internal development and promotion. We look forward to Dave taking on this new challenge and leading the Nova 93.7 programming team.”

McClung joined Nova 919 Adelaide in 2006 as assistant music director and the following year returned home to Perth to take up the same role.

Over the next 11 years, his career progressed from MD to the dual programming role and workday announcer.

In November 2018 he moved to Sydney to take up his most recent role as Nova 96.9 operations manager.

McClung begins in the new role on October 28.

PJ run out of mates from the UK?

Well done McClung, finally being rewarded for sticking it out. Well deserved.

Also PJ now marketing and programming boss? That went under the radar.
