Nova’s Chrissie, Sam & Browny hanging up the mic

The hosts of Nova 100’s popular breakfast show Chrissie, Sam & Browny are hanging up the mic after seven years on air.

Nova Entertainment announced on Friday that the ACRA award-winning team would host their final show on December 2, wrapping up what has been a successful seven years on air.

The show has been the number one or two FM Melbourne breakfast show 19 times since it launched, but the trio said the “time is right to spread their wings and try new things”.

Chrissie Swan, Sam Pang, and Jonathan Brown expressed their pride in the show and their gratitude for its listeners following the announcement.

“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,” said Swan, who has spent 20 years on breakfast radio. “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.”

Although excited to finally sleep in, Pang said it was a privilege to host the show.

“I’ve loved my time at Nova and I would like to thank everyone who has been involved in the show over the past seven years. I would especially like to thank the listeners for their support,” he said. “I’ve made some life-long friends and feel very lucky to have worked with such an amazing team.”

As for Brown – or “Browny” as he is affectionately known – Chrissie, Sam & Browny was his opportunity to move to Melbourne and begin a new journey after completing his career in AFL. “I’ve shared some life-changing moments with our listeners and the team have become like family to me,” he said.

As for what adventures the future holds for the beloved trio, it is yet to be revealed. However, Nova hinted at a “fresh challenge” for Swan at the Nova Network as her “TV career [takes] on new heights in 2022″.

Following Carrie Bickmore’s departure from The Project on Network Ten, whispers of Swan potentially taking the seat have spread. Swan is a longtime Project regular and currently appears each Thursday as a guest.

Over the coming weeks, Nova said the crew will celebrate their seven years on air and farewell their fans with special guests, favourite segments, and some “unexpected surprises”. It is yet to be announced who will replace the breakfast show team.

More to come.
