Early cut for Kip

Early cut for Kip

Posted December 9th, 2011 by debritz

Nova 106.9 has confirmed that Kip Wightman will return to host the breakfast show from January 16. Current anchor Dan Anstey will stay with the station.

Anstey will host the morning session, from 9am to midday, replacing Whippy, who is moving to Melbourne.

The move, first signalled here on debritz.net, represents an early departure for Wightman from the afternoon shift on 97.3FM, which is half-owned by Nova owner DMG Radio.

Wightman will host the breakfast show alongside his former colleagues Ash Bradnam and David "Luttsy" Lutteral, and Nova newcomer Camilla Severi.

Nova 106.9 general manager Sean Ryan said the move was months in the making and the outcome was exciting for Nova staff and listeners.

“When Kip departed in 2010 to go on his overseas odyssey he left a legacy that Nova has never forgotten,” Ryan said in a media statement.

“Kip feels that strong connection with our station and our listeners and I know he is just as excited as we are to be returning to the studio where it all began.”
