Greg Burns departs Nova Mornings in Brisbane & Adelaide

Former Assistant Editor

Greg Burns‘ National Mornings show will no longer be broadcast on Nova 106.9 Brisbane and Nova 91.9 Adelaide as of Monday June 18, with both stations making a return to local programming.

It appears that Burns will continue to broadcast Mornings in Sydney and Melbourne, however this morning he was notably absent, with Troy Ellis filling in.

Jarrod Walsh is now hosting Mornings in Adelaide, while Nova Brisbane has brought Afternoons presenter Katie Mattin back to the Mornings slot that she previously occupied.

She vacates her current slot of 1pm-4pm which News Corp reports will remain locally produced, but as yet has not been filled.

According to Nova’s website, Cale Porter will be heard on Arvos on both stations, at least for the time being.

DC will continue to host Arvos in Sydney and Melbourne.

“I’ve missed interacting with (breakfast hosts) Ash, Kip, Luttsy and Susie, and am looking forward to the challenge of entertaining the bigger audience,” Mattin told News Corp.

“Also, doing school drop-off every morning is exhausting.”

She copped an banterous welcome from Ash, Kitty and Luttsy this morning…

Mattin is the wife of Nova 106.9 PD and national head of podcasting Jay Walkerden.

The news follows the roll-out of Nova’s new National workday music format ‘Nova’s Greatest Hits Workday’.

PJ had it right! Why would he change it?
Nova just went number 1 in the workday with Greg Burns and the networked music.
Stick to your guns.

NOVA should go back to their original “sounds different” format. Lots of dance tracks , less top 40 drivel, and a sprinkling of rock.

This is step in the right direction for Brisbane. Bring Tim back to arvo’s and the ratings should start to climb again.

Greg Burns is/was the best announcer on Nova, clever humour, great timing and interesting funny stories from hanging out at celebrity functions or dating a Spice Girl. If you are going to change it put him on the drive-time show in Sydney and get rid of the Melbourne based Tim and Marty show who are simply not funny and painful to listen to.

Greg is no longer on Sydney and Melbourne either. Has he departed the network?
