Nova Entertainment appoints new Perth program director

• In November 2018 McClung moved to Sydney to take up his most recent role as Nova 96.9 operations manager

Nova Entertainment has appointed Dave McClung (pictured) as Nova 93.7 program director in Perth. He takes over the role from Dan Underhill who was poached earlier this year by Gary Roberts for the position of 96FM content director.

With extensive radio experience, across multiple markets and roles, McClung joined Nova 919 in 2006 as assistant music director in Adelaide. The following year he returned home to Perth to take up the role of assistant music director.

Over the next 11 years his career progressed from music director to the dual programming role of assistant program director and work day announcer. In November 2018 McClung moved to Sydney to take up his most recent role as Nova 96.9 operations manager.

Paul Jackson, Nova Entertainment’s chief programming and marketing officer said, “We are delighted to appoint Dave as program director for Nova 93.7. He has a thorough understanding of the Perth market as well as the Nova on air and programming team locally and around the country. Over the past 13 years, Dave has gained extensive programming experience, across multiple roles within the business in Perth, Sydney and Adelaide. He is highly respected by the Perth team and is a great example of our focus on internal development and promotion. We look forward to Dave taking on this new challenge and leading the Nova 93.7 programming team.”

McClung will commence in the role on October 28.
