Rigged competition

In April 2010, announcer Hans Bruechle tipped off his friend Ashlea Reid when he was about to play the secret song. The radio station was alerted to the rigging by a friend of both Reid and Bruechle. Following the incident Nova gave the prize to youth suicide prevention charity Youth Focus and Bruechle was fired.[1]
