A BRADFORD-born musician is ready for the latest challenge in his career - co-presenting a weekday TV show in the USA.

David Nowakowski is set to become a co-host of daytime TV show Loving Living Local, show on the FOX21 channel in Colorado, every weekday between 9am and 10am.

The live lifestyle show is similar to ITV's This Morning in the UK with features on subjects including food.

Mr Nowakowski, 36, also known by his nickname Nova, has signed a three-year contract on the show and will make his on-screen debut next month after impressing bosses at his screen test.

He says he is really excited and humbled by the opportunity and cannot wait to go in front of the cameras.

Mr Nowakowski's series of videos, 'Nova Meets', will also continue on the show and he has filmed a few of those on YouTube, including one for the Telegraph & Argus' Retail, Leisure and Hospitality Awards earlier this month.

He now lives in Denver, Colorado, and officially became a US citizen earlier this year.


He says the door is always open to him returning to music, including to Bradford band Scars on 45, where he is their keyboard player.

Mr Nowakowski said: "I'm really excited.

"This is a huge deal and massive opportunity for me putting Bradford on the map Stateside.

"It's lifestyle TV, like Sunday Brunch or This Morning.

"I'm now a kid from Bradford co-presenting with a girl from Texas on American TV.

This will be me as more like Phillip Schofield without the grey hair

"It could be a case of right place, right time for me. It's a crazy rollercoaster.

"I'm very humbled by it. Over the last five years, I have gone from hosting in the suite at Bradford City matches to the Rockies of Colorado in a TV studio. It's an opportunity I couldn't miss.

"I'll have free rein on the show. My biggest worry is swearing on TV. When I had my screen test for the show, they said they needed a guy, they thought I had a great moustache and I had the thickest British accent they had heard in their life.

"Colorado is a hugely diverse state. They wanted something different for the show. I will be bringing that bit of Yorkshire onto the show.

"My desk at the TV station has a Bradford City scarf above it. I'm trying to push for the show to come live from Bradford one week.

"This is another chapter for me. The hard work starts now for me. This is something that has pretty much made me speechless.

"I have had an amazing chapter with Scars and that door is always open."

'A Wonderful Christmas', which is released on Tuesday, November 24, sees Mr Nowakowski team up on the songs with Bradford-based singer-songwriter Chantel McGregor, Rising Fever - Sam Harrison, who is also from Bradford; Nashville-based song writer Hannah Miller and Matt Baxter from Leeds.

Songs featured include Jingle Bells and Simply Having a Wonderful Christmas Time.
