Born in London and long based in Australia, Nic Nolan is probably best known in New Zealand for a silver space suit — the one he wore while co-presenting an ill-fated GOFTA awards show in 1987. Nolan began in UK radio and spent seven years in NZ, both in radio and as a TVNZ continuity announcer. Later he was a TV newsreader in Perth, and did four years as programme director of top-rating Adelaide radio station 5AA.
He is no stranger to managing and discipling hefty egos, getting the best out of limited talent and recognising a good opportunity when he sees one … Nolan’s expertise is getting a message out effectively and efficiently. Mike Smithson in Adelaide’s Sunday Mail, 8 January 2012
