Jase & Lauren launch date on Nova 100 Breakfast announced


It’s official: Nova 100’s hotly anticipated new Melbourne Breakfast show Jase & Lauren will make its debut on Friday, March 8.

Hosted by Jason ‘Jase’ Hawkins and Lauren Phillips, next Friday’s launch date will give Melbourne listeners their first taste of their new show, ahead of the Victorian Labour Day long weekend.

Jase and Lauren’s new home at Nova 100 was announced in early February, with the news attracting an overwhelmingly positive response from listeners.

Phillips says “We’ve been genuinely overwhelmed by the response over the past few months and in particular the excitement of the last few weeks.”

“No one is more excited to be back together and back on air than the two of us. We are counting down the minutes until next Friday. We’ve got plenty of stories to tell and lots of catching up to do. Melbourne, we are back and can’t wait to have a laugh with you.”

Hawkins says “The response from everyone has been overwhelming and we really appreciate it. It’s added a lot of pressure on that first show and those three hours of work, so I do feel we’ll need the weekend off to recover.”

“Jokes aside, we are so pumped to have our dysfunctional family back together and we can’t wait to get on the air at Nova and catch up with everyone.”

Brendan Taylor, Group Programming Director for the Nova Network, says “We’re so excited for Jase and Lauren to kick off their show next Friday. In their short time with us so far, they’ve settled in seamlessly with the Nova family and I know they’re going to bring their best show to listeners this year.”

The current Nova 100 Breakfast Show team Ben Harvey, Liam Stapleton and Belle Jackson will wrap up their breakfast hosting duties on Thursday, March 7, before taking the reins of Nova’s new national show Late Drive with Ben, Liam and Belle from 6pm-8pm on Monday, March 11.

God this is so juicy. Melbourne HATES Kyle so so much. Swift move from Nova to hire the team that the market actually loves on air in the market they actually live in.

In the past, I did not listen to Jason and Lauren all that often now they are going to be a Nova 100. I will be able to listen to them. I became a nova 100 listener on Sunday, February 11 2024 at 3:20 pm, loving station and immediately playing making going to dance.

So excited for jase and lauren to be back. I was a dedicated kiis listener until they were axed for kyle and Jackie o. Can’t stand them!! And how can they broadcast about our state when they’re not even here! I want my drive to work to be light-hearted, and fun, not the other offering. Bring on Friday!!!
