Nova Network

It reminds me of the old Nova during the 2000s. They had a great playlist, especially 106.9 in Brisbane.

There was a technical hiccup when the hosts talked to Sydney’s Josh Kennedy by phone just after the 8am news. The broadcast was cut when Sam Pang was posing a question to Josh and the producers quickly threw to a traffic update and a song, before the problem was fixed.

Why does Nova play the same songs over and over all day? I’ve heard Harry Styles 5 times today already!

The joys of CHR stations. Flog the same tight playlist.

It does not have to be that way, KIIS is the #1 CHR station in Sydney and it is nowhere as repetitive as Nova. I don’t understand why they still persist with the same flawed music scheduling. Ok it works in less competitive markets but not the ultra competitive markets of Sydney and Melbourne.

Fine use the existing playlist in Perth, Adelaide, and Brisbane, but Sydney and Melbourne need their own logs, and the number of spins for top 40 songs closer to those on the KIIS 106.5 log.

BTW ARN turned WS around by fine tuning the music, it use to behind Nova 969 in the Sydney ratings. They took it to #1 fm station, and even beat KIIS in Breakfast in one or two surveys if I remover correctly. I don’t think Nova 969 can do this but it certainly could rate higher then what it is now.

So they’re all on holidays next week instead. Kate, Tim and Joel as well as Fitzy and Wippa. Seems they choose to have the school holidays off rather than the survey break.

Same with Ben Fordham on 2GB.

I’m glad their employers are so flexible with them all. It’s great to see.
