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 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.

Nova 93.7 is only the second commercial FM radio station in Perth to not have previously been an AM station. The first was 96fm.

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 Reid and Bruechle. Following the incident Nova gave the prize to youth suicide prevention charity Youth Focus and Bruechle was fired.[1]
