ABC Grandstand kicks on for sports lovers

In response to the suspension of live sport, ABC Grandstand has introduced a range of new radio programs to keep sports fans entertained and up-to-date. 
The Head of ABC Sport, Nick Morris, said there was still a huge interest in quality, engaging sports content.  “We can’t replace live sport, but we can give sports fans a place to go where they can get involved in sport conversations and keep informed of the latest sport news.”
Every weekend, from midday, ABC Radio will continue to provide a range of sports programming.
On Saturdays, Roy & HG present Bludging on the Blindside, proving once again that even when there is no sport, too much sport is never enough.
On Sundays from midday, ABC Radio provides AFL and NRL focussed programs, with a local touch.
Programs include:

  • VIC, TAS & NT: Alister Nicholson, Cameron Ling & Adam Ramanauskas
  • SA: Aaron Bryans, Rod Jameson & Anna Meares
  • Perth: Clint Wheeldon, Ben Cameron & Mark Duffield
  • NSW, ACT & QLD: Andrew Moore, Luke Lewis & Matthew Elliott

ABC Grandstand DAB+ digital radio and the ABC listen app is providing 24/7 sports content from live hosted programs from Thursday to replays of great moments from the ABC archives, plus interviews and stories from across the world.
