Nova’s Summer Breakfast with Ben and Liam

Nova’s Ben & Liam will host breakfast around the country for two weeks from December 6.

The dynamic duo who cut their teeth at Adelaide’s Fresh 92.7 will be filling in for Nova’s breakfast teams as they take a break.

“We’re so bloody excited! Hosting the Adelaide breakfast show is like driving an above average Mazda with a five-star ANCAP safety rating. Hosting national summer breakfast is like being given the keys to a rich Dad’s Porsche Cayenne Turbo S. We can’t believe they’re letting us have a hot lap and we really hope we don’t scratch it,” Ben and Liam told Radio Today.

Ben & Liam earned respect with listeners and the industry after moving to Sydney in 2017 to host Triple J’s national breakfast show. In 2018 they were recognised as Radio Hosts of the Year at The Industry Observer Awards before joining the Nova Network in January 2020.

Ben & Liam burst into the Adelaide metro breakfast market in January 2020, as hosts of Nova 919’s breakfast show, and over the past two years the duo have made a big impact with Adelaideans.

This year Ben & Liam have entertained and revealed some significant and important moments with their listeners including broadcasting live suspended from a billboard (Human Billboard is an ACRA finalist), spending five days locked in a glass box in Rundle Mall to create awareness and conversations about mental health (raising $90,000 for Lifeline Adelaide), kayaking over four hours or 11 nautical miles to Kangaroo Island and shared the moments when they both got engaged.

Paul Jackson, NOVA Entertainment Chief Programming & Marketing Officer said, “Ben and Liam have built an engaged on-air and social audience since they joined the Nova Network only two years ago.”

“With the duo heard nationally on Sunday breakfast and a new daily lunch time hour heard in Sydney and Melbourne, the boys are looking forward to entertaining listeners over summer. Ben & Liam are talented broadcasters, and we can’t wait to share their engaging and compelling content with audiences across Australia in the lead up to Christmas.”

Nova’s Summer Breakfast with Ben & Liam can be heard across the country from 6am to 9am AEST weekdays, from Monday 6 December to Friday 17 December.

Like these two on Nova at lunchtime. Only problem is it’s too short. How about extending next year.

More syndicated programming. When is nova going to go back to local content. Since Murdoch bought nova it’s gone to the toilet. More adds, too much repeat music, too much national programming. No diversity. Nova used to be good. When they did 2 adds in a row. Nova is too predictable. Needs to go back to when they first launched.

@Mike are you aware that all radio stations are on summer break so you can expect to hear syndicated programming until all breakfast shows are back on the air around mid to late January 2022

@Gladys it’s mentioned on this page! Have a read on the page
