Radio presenter Camilla Severi has been dropped from Brisbane’s Nova 106.9 Breakfast show, DMG Radio Australia has announced.

Severi wasn’t back on air on Monday morning when her DMG co-hosts Ash Bradnam, David “Luttsy” Lutterall and Kip Wightman returned from the summer break.

Yesterday the station put out a statement: “Nova 106.9 and Camilla Severi have made the mutual decision to move her out of the breakfast show. We would sincerely like to thank Camilla for her hard work and dedication in the breakfast show and an announcement will be made in the coming weeks about her next role on the network. Nova is 100% committed to her continued development and she will remain part of Nova family.”

The announcement also stated the breakfast line-up would remain Bradnam, Lutterall and Wightman for 2012.

In August, Severi abruptly left Southern Cross Austereo’s B105FM where she was breakfast presenter with co-hosts Jason “Labrat” Hawkins and Stewart “Stav” Davidson. Just weeks later she was part of Nova’s breakfast team.

At the time, Sean Ryan, Nova Brisbane GM said: “Camilla is a great talent and we know she and the boys have a chemistry that listeners will relate to as a breakfast team.”

Brisbane’s Courier Mail speculates Severi’s dumping from the line up was due to poor market research results.
