Awkward moment Tim Blackwell and Joel Creasey address ‘Nova’s bloodbath’ at the Australian Commercial Radio Awards as their co-host Kate Ritchie goes on hiatus

Joel Creasey and Tim Blackwell addressed Nova’s recent shakeup at the Australian Commercial Radio Awards on Saturday night. 

The duo, who co-host Nova’s national FM drive show with Kate Ritchie, were presenting an award at the event when Joel, 32, joked the stain on Tim’s shirt was from Nova’s ‘bloodbath’.

‘You’ve got something on you by the way,’ Joel said.

‘It’s some of Nova’s bloodbath,’ Tim joked.

It comes after Kate Ritchie, 43, revealed last week she was taking a break from her Nova FM national drive show.

She will be off the air for the remainder of the year but will return alongside co-hosts Joel Creasey and Tim Blackwell in early 2023.

Ritchie, who was busted for low-range drink driving in August, explained to listeners she’d had an ‘incredibly hectic and full-on’ year and needed time off.

‘This past year has been incredibly hectic and full-on for both me and my family,’ she said.

‘I have had much change and increased stress in my life, like many of you, in a short space of time. And it has taken its toll.

‘But still I am so proud that our Nova show, with Tim and Joel and the team, is just powering along, and going from strength to strength.’

The news came just hours before Chrissie Swan, Sam Pang and Jonathan Brown also shocked their listeners as they announced they were leaving Nova’s top-rating Melbourne breakfast show, Chrissie, Sam & Browny, after seven years on-air.

According to an insider, the announcement also stunned Nova staff, with all employees at the station receiving an email at 8.30am from CEO Peter Charlton with a press release attached.

Chrissie, Sam & Browny will host their final show on December 2.
