Kay will be responsible for managing the Nova 100 brand and promotions team to create and deliver promotional solutions for Nova Entertainment’s clients and stations, secure and manage key partnerships, and deliver on the company strategy while ensuring a winning culture of innovation, idea generation and execution across Nova Entertainment’s brands.
Polly Goodchild, Nova Entertainment’s brand and promotions director said, “We are extremely pleased to appoint Andy Kay to the role of Nova 100 brand and promotions manager. Andy is a strong leader and his passion for radio and Melbourne make him the perfect culture fit for Nova Entertainment. With seven years’ experience in radio promotions, partnerships and client implementation, he’s the perfect addition to the local brand and promotion’s team.

Working in the radio industry is a dream career for me and joining Nova Entertainment is a new and exciting chapter in my life. It’ll also be fantastic to reunite with the gorgeous Chrissie Swan after all these years!”
