Nova’s Kate, Tim & Marty, which has earned the bragging rights to call itself “Australia’s number one national drive show”, is going bush with a syndication deal for 48 regional stations starting this week.
Kate Ritchie, Tim Blackwell and Marty Sheargold yesterday returned to the Nova Network for a fifth year and can now also be heard on Grant Broadcasters, Ace, Super Radio Network, Redwave and Snow FM.
Their first show back revealed a new TGIM for listeners with the team revealing they were “happy” to be back at work.
Tim said Kate went to the Disneyland for poor people – Hong Kong. Marty said he had a great six weeks off. As to where the show might travel to in 2018, a trip to New York or maybe the royal wedding in London are possibilities!
Luke Minto, Nova Entertainment’s Sydney General Manager, said, “This is a brilliant opportunity to share the content and the great listening experience that Kate, Tim & Marty offer listeners on their drive home, a truly unique show that will now welcome a few million more listeners to the many in-jokes.”
Nova’s Fitzy & Wippa has been syndicated for the last four years with the duo heard across 38 regional stations on Grant Broadcasters, Ace, Redwave and Snow FM around Australia.
