The show, titled The Chrissie Swan Show, will air from 2pm to 4pm weekdays and launch in January 2023.

In a statement from Nova, Chrissie said it was “a dream come true” being a part of Nova’s Melbourne breakfast show Chrissie, Sam & Browny alongside Sam Pang and Jonathan ‘Browny’ Brown and connecting with listeners.

“I’ve achieved so much professionally and personally over the past seven years, and I’m thrilled to take on this new opportunity to embrace a new audience right across the country in this brand-new time slot,” she said.


Nova Entertainment CEO Peter Charlton also shared his excitement about Chrissie’s new role, describing her as “a highly respected broadcaster and one of Australia’s most loved personalities”.

“Her engaging and down to earth style has seen her connect with listeners over her impressive radio career, the last seven years of which were part of Nova 100’s award-winning breakfast show,” he said.

“The 2pm to 4pm timeslot is important to both listeners and advertisers, with a highly engaged audience often on the school run. Chrissie has really broad appeal and we can’t wait to share her charismatic broadcasting style with a national audience in this marquee day part.”

Chrissie’s career highlights

Chrissie first began working in breakfast radio in 2003 after she came second on Big Brother, and in 2022 her TV career reached new heights.

In addition to hosting her own show Would I Lie To You? on Channel Ten, the Logie award winner also appeared as a guessing panellist on the fourth season of The Masked Singer and spent several weeks filling in for Carrie Bickmore on The Project.

Her latest career move comes shortly after it was announced that Chrissie, Sam & Browny will have their final show on Friday 2 December.

“I’m so proud of what we’ve achieved professionally and personally since we first met in 2015 - especially the last few years as we all kept each other afloat during the pandemic,” Chrissie said in a statement.

“I’m thrilled to now put a bow on the absolute gift of the Chrissie, Sam & Browny experience and am looking forward to a new adventure with Nova.”
