Fitzy celebrates ten years on NOVA

Friday 15 August, 2014

Congratulations to Ryan Fitzgerald, otherwise known as "Fitzy" from Fitzy & Wippa on NOVA, who celebrates ten years at the network today.

Fitzgerald is a former Australian rules footballer who found instant fame on reality TV show Big Brother in 2004, finishing fourth. His vibrant personality and hilarious antics saw him move effortlessly into media, appearing on Channel 10's Saturday night AFL show Before The Game before moving on to radio.

Good clean fun... well, not so clean

Thursday 17 July, 2014
Proving that there's always a way to put a new spin on some good clean fun, Nova Sydney's Fitzy and Wippa were inspired by the latest BMW ad to attempt a new version of the classic tablecloth trick.

The BMW ad shows a motorbike going from zero to 100km/h in just 2.9 seconds in an attempt to pull the cloth out from a fully set banquet table.

Hear what was cut out of Fitzy and Wippa's show

Wednesday 16 July, 2014
It didn't get to air, but it has gone online.

This week MasterChef's Matt Preston accidentally let the F word slip out on Fitzy and Wippa's Nova 96.9 breakfast show.

The slip was well covered in the media, so Fitzy and Wippa presumably decided to give it a run online.

So far this week in Sydney Kiis' Kyle has throw up on air, 2Day twitter followers have glimped Sophie Monk's breasts and Nova listeners have seen Preston swear.

It must be the first week of the new ratings season.

Fitzy and Wippa get the low down on Premier Mikey Baird

Wednesday 23 April, 2014

Fitzy and Wippa had the new NSW Premier, Mike Baird, on the show yesterday where he revealed his favourite songs (Power and the Passion and Sold Rock), his wife’s nickname for him (Mikey) and that Prince George is a bit of a terror during the Royal Visit to Bear Cottage which he hosted.
The Premier was a bit nervous to begin with but he got into the swing of things until he was told, the next time he's on the show they'll be asking for a karaoke rendition of the Power and the Passion. We can't wait for that one.
