SEN’s Gold Coast station is set for a sporting boost ahead of the NRL and AFL seasons with Queensland and Australia’s biggest shows and live calls now available on the Coast.
Sports Entertainment Network today unveiled a new look and logo for 1620 SEN Gold Coast and new line up ahead of the respective sporting seasons.
The move will see all Gold Coast Suns AFL matches and many Gold Coast Titans NRL matches heard on 1620 SEN Gold Coast, plus State of Origin live coverage through a parochial lens dubbed ‘Maroons Radio’.
Breakfast with Pat and Heals, will remain each morning 6.30 – 8.30am, while fans will get an even longer two-hour edition of locally-made evening show Sportsday with Gary Belcher and Scott Sattler.
Trackside, each Wednesday and Saturday afternoon and Andrew Bensley’s self-titled show Bensley will remain on 1620 Gold Coast, which will also have prime position on the Queensland interface of the SEN app.
New shows for SEN Gold Coast include Mornings with Matt White 10am-noon, Monday to Thursday and Morning Glory with Matty Johns on Fridays 9am-noon. Plus an hour of Whateley over lunch 12-1pm and Drive with Joel and Fletch will also be heard on the 1620 AM dial.
The nationally-syndicated The Driver’s Seat with Steve Johnson and Matt McKeldon will remain made out of SEN’s local Varsity office.
SEN head of radio Sam Thompson says the network was committed to providing more sport and localised content to Queenslanders, “SEN has long had a strong listener base on the Gold Coast and we intend to dial-up a locally-relevant sport offering for them.
“We’re delighted with the response from listeners to Pat and Heals for breakfast as well as the Sportsday boys of an evening so we plan to build on that with live AFL and NRL coverage in support of the local fan-base.”
