It comes after Swan, 48, and her co-hosts Sam Pang and Jonathan Brown announced their departure from Nova 100’s Melbourne breakfast show on Friday.

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 and Browny’s final show will air on December 2.

‘We have relied on each other in this studio and it’s a good idea to put a bow on what has been this entire experience for all of us and bow out gracefully,’ Swan said on air.

‘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.’

Swan went on to say that despite the announcement coming as a shock to their listeners, the time was right for the trio.

The TV and radio star, who also appears on The Project and The Masked Singer, said she was preparing for a new role at Nova after 20 years in breakfast radio.
