Ben and Liam join Nova’s national summer breakfast show

Ben Harvey and Liam Stapleton have been announced as hosts of Nova’s summer breakfast show, to be broadcasted nationally.

The announcement:

After a rapid rise in Adelaide breakfast this year, Nova superstars Ben & Liam will be heard nationally across the country as hosts of the Nova Network’s Summer Breakfast show from Monday 30 November.

Nova’s Summer Breakfast with Ben & Liam will air from 6am to 9am across the Nova Network, while Nova’s local breakfast teams take a well-earned break over the festive season.

Ben & Liam burst into the Adelaide metro breakfast market in January this year, with the duo joining the Nova Network to host Nova 919’s breakfast show. After only eight months on air, Ben & Liam’s relationship with Adelaidians saw the duo take out the top spot as the # 1 FM breakfast show (11% share)* for the first time.

Ben & Liam’s hard work and love for radio has seen their broadcast career take off rapidly, since meeting at Fresh 92.7 Adelaide community radio station. The stand up comedians scored their first big break in 2017, moving to Sydney to host Triple J’s national breakfast show and the following year were announced as Radio Host’s of the Year at The
Industry Observer Awards. In January 2020 Ben & Liam started their career with the Nova Network as hosts of Nova 919’s new breakfast show.

Ben & Liam said, “Why did we choose to work our holidays? It’s a great question, it sounded a lot better when our bosses pitched it to us. They’re quite persuasive!.”

Paul Jackson, NOVA Entertainment Chief Programming & Marketing Officer said, “Ben & Liam have had a brilliant start to their first year on air in Adelaide with Nova, making them the obvious choice for our national summer breakfast show. We are confident that their genuine friendship and sense of humour will resonate with our national Nova audience. The boys can’t wait to take control of the network to deliver a fun, fresh, feel-good summer show from 30 November!”

Nova’s Summer Breakfast with Ben & Liam can be heard across the country from 6am to 9am weekdays, from Monday 30 November to Friday 11 December.
