Radio Nova (or simply Nova) is a radio station broadcast from Paris, created in 1981 by Jean-François Bizot. Its playlist is characterized by non-mainstream or underground artists of various music genres, such as electro, new wave, reggae, jazz, hip hop and world music.
On 25 May 1981, Nova is created following the fusion of several radio stations. The radio is since its creation, owned by the Nova Press company, which today also owns the record label Nova Records, and the jazz-oriented radio station TSF Jazz.
Throughout its history, several well-known Parisians have had shows on Radio Nova, such as Ariel Wizman, Edouard Baer, Jamel Debbouze, Gilles Peterson, Ivan Smagghe, Laurent Garnier and David Guetta.
In September 2011, Nova and TSF Jazz quits the GIE of Les Indés Radios to commercialize national advertising via their own Nova Régie. Given a year's notice, it will be effective starting in September 2012.
