“The past year has been incredibly hectic and full for both me and my family,” she said.
“I have experienced many changes and more stress in my life in a short time, like many of you. And it has taken its toll.
“But still, I’m so proud that our Nova show, with Tim and Joel and the team, is only moving forward and getting stronger.”

Kate, who currently serves as a judge on Channel Seven’s Australia’s Got Talent, first joined Nova FM in 2007.
The former Home and Away child star began hosting the Kate, Tim & Marty drive show in 2014 with Blackwell and Marty Sheargold.
Creasy was hired in 2020 when Sheargold left for Triple M.
More to come.
