2GB, 4BC and 9Podcasts kicking off a star studded NRL season 2024

After a successful inaugural opening weekend of the 2024 NRL season in Las Vegas, the rest of round one continues from Thursday with Sydney’s 2GB and Brisbane’s 4BC providing star studded coverage and commentary as well as a scrum of 9Podcasts so you can enjoy the game wherever you are.

The Continuous Call Team is back for its 38th season, calling every game live and free on 2GB, 4BC and stations across Australia. Returning are Darryl Brohman, Paul Gallen, Mark ‘Piggy’ Riddell, Josh Morris, Jamie Soward, Allana Ferguson, Boyd Cordner and Mark Gasnier.

David Morrow who retired after a brain cancer diagnosis last month will be profoundly missed by and from the team. Mark Levy steps up as lead-commentator with Mathew Thompson and Chris Warren also calling games each week. Neil Breen joins the Sunday panel for the first time, returning to Nine Radio to give insight on the game he loves.

Naturally Ray Hadley will feature in the commentary box too, during State of Origin and for the NRL Finals series, continuing his record-breaking tally of 96 Origin and 34 Grand Final calls.

Luke Davis, 2GB Content Manager, said:

“2GB boasts an unrivalled team of fan-favourites and some of the most accomplished and respected names in Rugby League. With the huge slate including The Continuous Call Team, Wide World of Sports and our podcast offerings, footy fans will be able to access the best quality news, sport and entertainment content every day of the week, on any device, all season long.”

4BC’s local Wide World of Sports coverage will be helmed by Peter Psaltis. He will be joined weekly by Paul Vautin and Johnathan Thurston. 2GB’s Wide World of Sports sees Mark Levy continue as host, joined by Brad Fittler, Paul Gallen and legendary broadcaster Ken Sutcliffe.

9Podcasts’ The Billy Slater Podcast, Six Tackles with Gus and Stories of Origin all return. The first two programs are also available on 9Now or wherever you get your podcasts. Stories of Origin is into its third season released ahead of this year’s edition, reliving some of the greatest rivalries in Origin history.

Head of Podcasts Mia Stern said:

“9Podcasts is dedicated to giving rugby league fans even more access to the biggest and best names in the game. Every single week of the 2024 season we will hear from Billy Slater, Gus Gould, Mathew Thompson and Mark Levy as they offer their unique perspectives, insightful commentary, expert analysis and share some of the most captivating stories from the world of rugby league”
