Hansen leaves after nine years

NOVA Entertainment has announced Jennifer Hansen will leave the Smooth FM 91.5 More Music Breakfast Show after nine years.

Hansen has been a journalist and presenter on the More Music Breakfast Show, as well as a member of the Smooth FM team, since March 2014. With more than 25 years of experience across television, radio and print, Hansen has been heard alongside long-standing breakfast host Mike Perso, for the past nine years.

Hansen said, “Exciting news, albeit tinged with sadness, that after nine wonderful years, I am finishing up at Smooth FM 91.5 for personal and professional reasons but at least I’ll be able to turn off that dreaded 3.50am alarm. I am very grateful for my time on air with Mike Perso and the brilliant team behind our breakfast show including producer Lauren Saylor and journalist Nikole Gunn.

“I’m so proud of everything Mike and I achieved over our nine years including winning the Number One FM breakfast radio program spot twice. We also became great friends and shared plenty of good times and laughter throughout the years.

“A huge thank you to our wonderful Smooth listeners for their loyalty over the years and to my incredible family especially Alan for all his support and guidance. It’s now time for some very exciting new adventures – stay tuned.”

Mike Perso said, “In the almost nine years that Jen and I spent together on air, she became not just a colleague but a friend. We shared many laughs and I wish her nothing but happiness in whatever adventures lie ahead. To paraphrase the great Bob Dylan; May God bless and keep you always and may you stay forever young.”

Since launching in May 2012, the Smooth FM 91.5 More Music Breakfast Show has increased by 4.4 share points to a 7.2% share, increased total audience by 194% to 474,000 listeners and has made a long-standing contribution to the Good Friday Appeal and Frocktober fundraising appeals.

Smooth FM 91.5’s More Music Breakfast Show, hosted by Mike Perso, will return on Monday 16 January from 5.30am on Smooth 91.5 or via the Nova Player.
