NOVA Entertainment’s chief programming and music content officer resigns: ‘I’m immensely proud of what we have achieved’

NOVA Entertainment’s chief programming and music content officer Paul Jackson resigned from his role last week after over a decade with the company.

Jackson has worked at NOVA since November 2010, back when it was known as DMG Radio.

NOVA Entertainment owns several popular FM radio stations broadcast across Australia, including Sydney’s NOVA 96.9 and Melbourne’s NOVA 100.

Jackson said it was a ‘privilege’ to work with such an amazing team for over a decade.

‘I’m immensely proud of what we have achieved during my twelve years at NOVA,’ he said. 

‘I am excited for the future as I start my own international radio consultancy and I am also keen to pursue some other unique and innovative business ideas that I have been developing.’

Peter Charlton, NOVA Entertainment CEO, said: ‘We thank Paul for all he has done and all of us at NOVA Entertainment wish him all the best for his next endeavours.’

During his time at Nova, the company consistently had strong results in radio ratings surveys.

smoothfm recently celebrated its 10th birthday and now reaches over 2.6 million people across Australia. 

‘[smoothfm] has evolved a lot from when we started…’ Jackson told media week earlier this year. 

‘It was much more ballad driven and positioned as your easy place to relax. Over time, we slowly pepped it up a bit.’ 

Nova 100 is a commercial radio station that features many popular programs including the Chrissie, Sam & Browny breakfast show (pictured: Hosts Sam Pang, Chrissie Swan and Jonathan Brown)
