It’s noteworthy that the two hosts have maintained their professional presence throughout their careers in commercial radio. Considering Hughesy and Kate have had 2,800 early starts well before 6 a.m., that’s an amazing achievement.

Hughesy and Kate were the first voices heard on Nova and have maintained a loyal following, recently topping the ratings for breakfast radio. They have had regular celebrity appearances over the 12 years the show has been on air and have been known for performing many humorous stunts.

Dave Hughes engaged in a light-hearted segment where he replicated the look of another public figure with the assistance of a makeup artist.

With seven children between them and careers in other realms of entertainment, Hughesy and Kate have finally deserved time away from the early morning microphone.
