Hughesy, Kate and Dave first began on 3 December 2001 on Nova 100 as the inaugural breakfast show for the newly launched radio station. Dave O'Neil was formerly a presenter of the show from its inception in December 2001, when it was known as Hughesy, Kate & Dave, but in July 2006 he moved to the breakfast show on Vega 91.5 (now smoothfm 91.5). Tim Blackwell replaced O'Neil although his name was not credited in the show's title.
In 2009, Ed Kavalee, formerly of The Wrong Way Home drive show with Akmal Saleh and Cal Wilson, replaced Tim Blackwell as silent anchor. In August, news presenter Carrie Bickmore announced that she was leaving Nova 100 to focus on her role at The 7pm Project and spend time with her son. Bickmore finished at Nova 100 on 25 September 2009 with Lauren Brain replacing her.
In December 2011 Ed Kavalee resigned to focus on TV and film work, along with Jeff Tyler. Ian Cohen replaced Tyler and Daniel Gawned was announced as Kavalee's replacement for the beginning of 2012.

In November 2014, Australian Radio Network announced the show would relaunch on its KIIS Network of stations in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide in the drivetime slot, replacing Rosso on Drive on KIIS 106.5 and Mix 101.1, and local announcers on 97.3 FM and Mix 102.3.
