A new weekly music show dedicated to local talent will start on Nova on Sunday.
Hosted by Brisbane 106.9 presenter Maddy Rowe, the debut of the Aus Music Show on March 19 will feature songs from Jessica Mauboy, Blusher and Mashd N Kutcher.
Rowe, who is also a pop artist performing under the moniker GENES, will also interview Zimbabwean-born RnB artist Kye from Melbourne.
Nova’s music director Jodie Williams said the new show aims to bring emerging artists and new songs to music fans.
Meanwhile, Rowe, who joined Nova in late 2021 after two years in Townsville with Southern Cross Austereo, has a thriving career as a pop star.
