History[edit]

The show commenced broadcasting on 17 January 2011,[1] replacing Ryan, Monty and Wippa on the drive shift. Ryan Shelton left Nova to focus on his television career and Katie Dimond (Monty) moved to Sydney to join Merrick Watts and Scott Dooley at Nova 96.9 on the breakfast show.

In August 2011, it was announced that Fitzy & Wippa would move to Nova 96.9 breakfast and replacing Merrick Watts and Scott Dooley. Meshel, Tim and Marty took over the national drive show.[2]

At 6pm on weekdays a one hour recap of Fitzy & Wippa is aired across the Nova Network.
