Nova 93.7 (call sign: 6PER) is a commercial radio station in Perth, Western Australia. Owned by NOVA Entertainment, it was established in the Perth market on Wednesday 5 December 2002. Nova 93.7 was launched at 3pm by the Red Hot Chili Peppers and by current drive presenter Tim Blackwell, with Can't Stop the first song being aired.

Controversies[edit]

Rigged competition[edit]

In April 2010, announcer Hans Bruechle tipped off his friend Ashlea Reid when he was about to play the secret song. The radio station was alerted to the rigging by a friend of both Ashlea and Hans. Following the incident Nova gave the prize to youth suicide prevention charity Youth Focus and Hans was fired.[1]
