I like Nova - despite their playlist not really being my thing ... I've always liked the way they've gone about things.
Digitally they have a potentially good offering - it's interesting and generally has a bit of thought about it ... much better than Austereo in terms of cut through and impact online in my opinion.
Saying that, I was horrified to see their homepage today. It had way too many clearly paid messages that made the page seem extremely cluttered. iSelect, Network 10 and Nova's Facebook App were all screaming for attention.
It's interesting a media group that overtly go to market saying they are all about a non cluttered environment that offers the advertiser cut through and integration have allowed this to happen ... btw the Sydney Nova969 site is no better - http://www.nova969.com.au/site/home.aspx
