Here’s a report from our colleagues at RadioToday Australia and an interview with Brit Paul Jackson on smooth doing well in Sydney.
It took just over three years but Nova Entertainment’s smooth fm went to number 1 FM for the first time in Sydney and did it in style.
We spoke to Paul Jackson about the smooth results and what in Paul’s words “is driving the others crazy?” with the brand? Can they do the same with smooth in Melbourne?
But it wasn’t all plan sailing for NE. We talk about Nova Network, in particular Nova 969 Sydney and Nova 100 Melbourne. “There is a lot of hard work to be done.. clearly”, said Paul. “Everything starts and ends at breakfast.”
Smooth FM in the UK, which started life in Manchester, also went to number 1 in the North West within three years of launching.
