Nova launches The Worst Day of Your Life podcast

Nova Entertainment has launched The Worst Day of Your Life, a podcast hosted by journalist Glenn Daniel.

The announcement:

Life is a journey of extremes – incredible highs and heart-wrenching lows – moments of achievement, celebration and happiness that can be snatched away in an instant. NOVA Entertainment announces the launch of the new podcast, The Worst Day of Your Life, featuring real stories of extraordinary people, who refuse to let disaster permanently change their lives and strive to help others change their lives for the better.

Award winning journalist, smoothfm’s Glenn Daniel, shares intimate conversations with people thrown into life’s worst moments through no fault of their own, only to emerge to do life’s best in the new podcast The Worst Day of Your Life, launching on Tuesday 11 May.

Incredible Australians tell the story of the worst day of their lives, some of the voices will be known, some will be new, but each one will take you on a journey you will never forget:

  • Gwen Cherne – the Defence expert who lost her military husband to suicide now campaigning for the care of veterans
  • Leila & Danny Abdallah – the couple heading a national campaign of forgiveness after losing three of their six children to a drunk, drugged and speeding driver
  • Patrizia Cassiniti – the woman driving workplace safety on building sites after a scaffold collapse killed her son
  • Shane Fitzsimmons – Australia’s disaster management expert driven to the point of quitting by a personal tragedy who now leads recovery for others
  • Jo Abi – the mother let down by experts when her son wanted to die, restores his passion for life and helps others facing the same situation
  • Glenn Daniel said, “It’s been a privilege to work on this podcast with Creator and Director Matt Clark and Executive Producer Katie Jackson. We’ve been humbled by incredible Australians who’ve faced life’s worst yet emerged to do life’s best. We know you’ll be inspired by their unforgettable stories.”

Having worked as a radio news journalist for over 35 years, Daniel has been a news journalist on smoothfm 95.3, co-hosting the More Music Breakfast Show with Bogart Torelli, since 2013. The three-time winner of Commercial Radio Australia’s Best News Presenter was recognised with the Brian White Memorial Award for Excellence in Journalism in 2014 and released his autobiography News Time – A Life in Radio in March 2018.

With an impressive news career across multiple radio networks, Daniel was News Director at 2SM before moving to Austereo as Sydney News Director for 2Day FM and Triple M. He spent four years as news journalist for WSFM before becoming Group News Director for ARN for the next decade. He was a presenter and producer for ABC News Radio before joining NOVA Entertainment in November 2012.
