Tim Blackwell and Kate Ritchie to host Live & Unrestricted on Nova
With more than half of Australia in lockdown, Nova has announced that Live & Unrestricted will air across its network every Saturday morning in August.
The decision arrives off the back of the network’s one-off special Kate, Tim & Joel Live in Lockdown, with the overwhelming listener response convincing the Nova team to make a return to the Saturday morning program.
Live & Unrestricted will be hosted by Drive hosts Tim Blackwell and Kate Ritchie, who will be joined by a range of guests like Karl Stefanovic, Fitzy and more.
Blackwell said that the show would seek to provide a source of light-hearted entertainment for the countless Australians currently stuck indoors due to the lockdowns in Queensland, Victoria and New South Wales.
“Whether you’re locked down with nothing to do or slowly getting back to normal hitting the road on a Saturday morning, from kid’s sport, a coffee run or waiting in line for a COVID test, let us be here for your ears and hopefully take your mind off things for an hour or two,” Blackwell said.
Live & Unrestricted will air every Saturday morning on Nova 96.9, Nova 106.9 and Nova 100 at 10am, while the program will begin at 9:30am on Nova 91.9 in Adelaide and 8am on Perth’s Nova 93.7.
Listeners will also be able to make song requests for the show and listen to past episodes via the Nova Player app.
