Roy and HG return to radio in 2017

The familiar banter of Australia’s ‘sporting heroes’ Roy Slaven & H.G Nelson is about to become a regular part of the Triple M airwaves with the duo set to make a permanent return to the network in 2017.

These legendary sporting correspondents will host a national Saturday morning show, The Sporting Probe with Roy & HG, from 10am-12pm in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide.

The duo will cover significant sporting events around Australia, providing their unique commentary that we all know and love.

First stop on their probe will be Rod Laver Arena where they will serve up for the Australian Open on Saturday January 28.

Having recently hosted a daily show on Triple M during the Olympic Games in Rio, Roy & HG said they are pumped to move into the three M’s permanently. 

H.G Nelson said, “Rampaging Roy Slaven was recently acknowledged by the A.F.L. and Racing Victoria as Australia’s No 1 prober. To have Roy back on air seeing gaping holes that need vigorous probing completes a MMM line up for 2017 that has its hoof on the till of ratings success. I am simply over the super moon.”

Triple M Network Head of Content, Mike Fitzpatrick said: “Having Roy & HG back at Triple M is like having Sheeds back at Essendon, Wayne Bennett back at the Bronco’s or Bob Simpson back with the First XI. It just makes sense.”

The Sporting Probe with Roy & HG will be played to regional audiences across the Triple M Network on Sunday’s from 7am-9am, and will also be available via iTunes Podcast.
