Original 10 staff members celebrate NOVA 106.9's 10 years

Monday 06 April, 2015

Brisbane’s Nova 106.9 turns 10 this week and on hand to celebrate are 10 original staff members.

Back in 2004, the original team were given the task to build Brisbane's brand new FM radio station from scratch. They rented a one-bedroom apartment at Kangaroo Point, recruited a "work experience DJ" Bevan, who broadcast the first sounds from the apartment's bedroom, while the newly recruited Nova team met in the kitchen and kept their paperwork in the bathroom.

Fast forward 10 years and 10 members of this original team will lead the station in celebrations in their world class studios at Teneriffe.

General Manager and Program Director Jay Walkerden said it was a great opportunity to celebrate the people behind the station and all that the team has achieved over the past 10 years.

"To have this group of highly experienced and extremely talented industry professionals celebrating 10 years working for Nova Brisbane, in an industry characterized by high turnover is a both a testimony to their passion; and to Nova's commitment to their people."

The 10 staff are:

Dee Curtis, Integration & Marketing Director and Assistant Program Director
Campbell Swinton, National Infrastructure Engineer
Luke McKew, Technology Manager
Sarah Fletcher, Syndication & DAB+ Operations
Ben Ryan, Production Manager
Ben Clayton, Commercial Producer
Brian Johnson, Financial Controller
Moraig Askern, Executive Assistant
Brad Roberts, Agency Client Executive
Nathan Russell, Creative Director
