Bree Clements and Bronte Langbroek to produce Ash, Kip & Luttsy with Susie O’Neill in 2021
Nova 106.9’s Breakfast show in Brisbane, Ash, Kip & Luttsy with Susie O’Neill, will have a new production team in 2021.
Executive producer Samantha Rose Spence will be on maternity leave, and Nova said it “saw an opportunity to devise a new producing pathway for the powerhouse show”.
In Spence’s place, Bronte Langbroek and Bree Clements will join forces and share responsibilities for the show. They will join “Breakfast production legend” Josh Burton to bring the show together each morning.
Clements began her radio career with Nova 106.9 in the ‘Fun & Games Department’ (aka Brand & Promotions), then moved into programming in 2020.
Langbroek started in the same department, but has since spent time as a campaign specialist at Australian Radio Network (ARN), as well as a Breakfast announcer on Southern Cross Austereo’s (SCA) Hit 99.7 in Griffith, and Hit93.1 in Wagga Wagga.
When SCA axed a number of its regional Breakfast shows, Langbroek joined Grant Broadcasters to become a promotions manager at K rock and bay 93.9.
Nova said Langbroek was excited to be returning to producing and the station that kickstarted her career.
Dee Curtis, Nova’s brand and promotions director, and Brendan Taylor, Nova’s group program operations director, said they were thrilled to bring together two smart, fun and talented women, and to be providing a pathway for professional success.
“Nova has always been about recognising ability and creating opportunity for our staff to shine,” Curtis said.
“Brendan and I are looking forward to working with this formidable team who will mark a new phase for the Nova Brisbane Breakfast team in 2021.”
In the most recent radio ratings, Nova 106.9 had a 13.0% share in Breakfast, up from 12.6% the survey prior. The station had a market-leading 12.5% share.
