This Friday January 22, listeners can come down and meet the new Nova 969 brekky team – Merrick Watts, Scott Dooley and Ricki-Lee Coulter – between 6am-9am at their first outside broadcast (OB) as a team.

Nova 969’s Merrick, Dools & Ricki-Lee will be giving away US$20,000 during the OB in The Piazza at Castle Towers shopping centre in Castle Hill.

They’ve lined up a stack of special guests and there will be free brekky and coffee during the show as well as a chance to win thousands of dollars in prizes including a $1,000 Castle Towers shopping spree, a Fitness First Membership and an Event Cinemas 12-month pass.

To cap it all off Merrick, Dools & Ricki-Lee will be revealing The Chosen One and winner of US$20,000.

The *US$20,000 will be in a glass safe, in a glass room located in the Piazza at Castle Towers from 8am the day before the OB (Thursday Jan 21) and unlocked Friday at 8am (January 22) during the live broadcast by The Chosen One.

The five finalists (who have been selected after a two-week online application period) in the glass box will have no access to the outside world and will be given only 24-hours to decide unanimously who out of the five will be The Chosen One and win the cash. Crowds will be able to gather around and watch the deliberation for the whole 24-hour period.

The twist – if a decision can’t be made then no-one in the box will win and the first caller through on 13 24 10 will be crowned The Chosen One and become US$20,000 richer!

Tune into Merrick, Dools & Ricki-Lee all this week to meet the five finalists; and listen from 8am Thursday to hear discussions and negotiations from inside the box.
