Newsreader Ash Gardner moves to Nova Sydney Breakfast


After seven years presenting Breakfast news on Melbourne’s Nova 100, Ash Gardner is moving to the Sydney airwaves.

Gardner is joining Fitzy, Wippa and Kate Ritchie as their Breakfast newsreader on Nova 96.9.

In a social media post, Gardner says “Melbourne, it’s been an absolute privilege bringing you the news in the morning for the last seven years on Nova100.”

“Looking forward to this next chapter.”

Gardner is an experienced journalist who has worked at Melbourne stations including 3AW and Fox FM.

She had, up until recently, been presenting news for Ben, Liam & Belle before they shifted to Drive and Jase & Lauren were installed as Nova 100’s new Breakfast team.

Congratulations Ash you are part of the Nova family, even though you are working in Sydney with Fiti whipper and Kate.

Ash is a terrific at her job. Interesting that she’s staying in Melbourne when Sydney breakfast is meant to be the biggest gig in Australia. So she’ll just prerecord bulletins meaning no interaction with the team like Matt De Groot had? Quality newsreaders should be an asset to a show not robots.
