NOVA Entertainment Awards
Late last week NOVA Entertainment’s second annual national staff awards were held in Melbourne at the National Gallery of Victoria. Already making the grade in the Top 25 of the Best Places to Work by BRW, this is second year of NOVA Entertainment Awards to reward and recognise staff.
Staff can nominate and recognise their colleagues, or put forward their own individual or team campaigns or initiatives. It also a chance for NE Group Execs and CEO Cathy O’Connor to recognise high achievers across all their markets.
On-Air talent from around the country flew in and shared hosting the awards on the night, including all Nova breakfast teams and Nova’s Kate, Tim & Marty and Smallzy; smoothfm 91.5’s Mike Perso & Jennifer Hansen and smoothfm day time talent Ty Frost and Simon Diaz
The night also included the Melbourne Philharmonic Orchestra, Black Swan from The Australian Ballet and surprise renditions from smoothfm’s Ty Frost, Nova Adelaide’s Dylan Lewis and NOVA Entertainment’s Business Support Manager Des Anthonisz. And there was a ring in with Delta Goodrem on stage as well.
Cathy O’Connor presented the flagship CEO Award to Michael Duncan, Group Yield and Inventory Manager, for his longstanding and material contribution to the organisation’s operational and revenue efficiency.
