Nova Nova is the newest national radio network, targetting Australia's year olds and reaching in excess of 2.6 million weekly listeners. Nova launched in Sydney in April 2001 with a promise to 'sound different' and offering a unique and compelling low clutter environment for listeners and advertisers alike with never more than 2 ads in a row. While retaining ad breaks of 2 in key breakfast and drive environments, the network now offers clients greater flexibilty by also having the option to advertise in longer breaks of up to 7 units. Nova remains committed to low clutter environments, playing 40% less commercials than our competitors and extended blocks of stopless nova music.
Nova Nova is passionate about new music, not only recommending and playing the best in new music to our audience, but supporting new emerging Australian artists with initiatives such as I Am With the Band and Sounds Like New. Nova is also a longstanding partner of the Australian Music Prize, ARIA Awards and Music Oz Awards along with many of the the biggest music festivals. The Nova network is home to some of Australia's most loved personalities and unique comedic talent including Merrick Watts, Scott Dooley, Ricki-Lee Coulter, Dave 'Hughesy' Hughes, Kate Langbroek, Dylan Lewis, Ryan Shelton, Meshel Laurie and Ryan 'Fitzy' Fitzgerald. Through the Nova brand values of irreverent, open, real and underdog, the Nova network remains focussed on sounding different and offering unique and compelling content to Australia's Under 40's.

High impact, low clutter advertising Why? When youre marketing to the under 40 consumer, you are dealing with the issue of clutter and ad avoidance, whether you like it or not! Take a look at the next 10 year old you meet, and watch them consume media! Thats our world today….. x two! At Nova, our approach is simple. We play less ads than the other networks. And we talk to them in their language. Simple, but it works.
