Marty Miller and Joan Lea are to host a new morning show on Radio Nova, with current breakfast host Pat Courtenay moving to drivetime.
Pat has been on breakfast at the station since it launched.
Marty Miller already works at Radio Nova, doing afternoon drive, and will be joined in the morning slot with former 98FM presenter Joan Lea. Joan left 98FM earlier this year to spend more time with her family and was one of the original members of the Strawberry Alarm Clock team on FM104.
Radio Nova CEO Kevin Branigan told RadioToday: “Joan and Marty have an unquestionable on-air chemistry and will be a fantastic on-air team. We feel that after three years, Radio Nova has come of age and is now in a position to bring a new challenge to the more established breakfast show market.
“I’m confident that Joan and Marty’s show will appeal to a wider audience, opening up the station to a whole new demographic, whilst ensuring that our loyal listeners continue to get the music and the banter that has secured our position in the market.”
Joan Lea added, “I feel very much at home on breakfast radio and whilst we are up against some pretty serious players in that time-slot, we’ll be coming out fighting and it’s a challenge we will relish and are ready for. It’s an exciting time to join Radio Nova as its star is clearly very much in the ascent.”
Joan and Marty will be taking over the 6am – 10am slot from Wednesday 23rd October.
