Nova’s Brisbane GM Jay Walkerden under internal investigation

Jay Walkerden, Nova’s general manager in Brisbane and the group’s head of podcasting, is under investigation following an alleged incident during a work trip to the United States.

Walkerden was travelling with members of the Brisbane breakfast show ‘Ash, Kip and Luttsy with Susie O’Neill’, and it’s understood the alleged altercation involved one of the on-air team members.

Mumbrella heard about the alleged incident last week, but Nova declined to comment at the time.

The investigation has now been confirmed, however Nova declined to comment further on either the alleged incident or the investigation.

Walkerden joined Nova in 2011 as program director for 106.9. He was then elevated to the dual role of general manager of Brisbane in 2015. He now also has responsibility for its podcast operations.

Walkerden declined to comment when contacted by Mumbrella.
