The collateral damage of Jase and Lauren's Nova move: Ben, Liam and Belle ... trends now

Last week Lauren Phillips and Jase Hawkins made the dramatic announcement that they will be launching a new breakfast show on Nova's 100 FM.

The high-rating team will be replacing the morning show hosted by Ben Harvey, Liam Stapleton and Belle Jackson.

And now, Media Week has revealed that the popular trio only learned they were losing their jobs 'shortly before' Lauren and Jase posed for a 'secret' photo shoot in the Nova studio.

The industry blog reports that, in an unusual move, Ben, Liam and Belle will remain hosting the breakfast slot until Jase and Lauren have a start date.

Once the duo take over breakfast, Ben, Liam & Belle, will move on to a new national show, Late Drive, airing weekdays from 6pm to 8pm.

Their move to Nova now means they will be going head-to-head in a ratings clash with with their former KISS FM colleagues. 

'I'm beyond excited to be joining the Nova family,' Lauren, 41, said in a statement.

'I've been a longtime fan of the station and to be joining Nova 100 really is a dream come true.'
