Nova has axed at least four staff members in the latest round of job cuts to affect the radio industry during the COVID-19 recession.

On Tuesday, Radio Today confirmed that the network had decided to cut local workdays in Brisbane and Adelaide.

This change will see Nova 106.9 hosts Katie Mattin and Jack Tree, and Nova 919 announcers Rosie Panetta and Jarrod Walsh depart the business or ‘possibly be redeployed’.

The presenters were reportedly notified of the changes on Friday after their shifts.

In Sydney and Brisbane, Kent ‘Smallzy’ Small is now set to host afternoons, while Dan ‘DC’ Cassin will do mornings.
