Staff Writer

While most of the Nova, Hit and Triple M breakfast and drive shows will remain on-air over the Easter survey break, it’s a mixed bag over at Australian Radio Network.

Of the schedule, ARN’s national content director, Duncan Campbell, explains: “As we manoeuvre through these dynamic times, we’re committed to delivering our audiences the very best content to provide community, connection and some normality.

“As we all play our part in protecting our communities by following Government’s recommendations, we’re conscious that these lockdown conditions may go on for some months. With this long-term scenario in mind, our broadcasting schedule is being prepared accordingly.

“Each of our shows have decided if they’ll work through this short survey break, knowing that they’ll be broadcasting through these unusual times for months to come.

“Our teams across the country will continue to deliver outstanding content that connects and resonates with listeners, providing entertainment, comfort and assurance, be it via broadcast, on-demand, or digital.”
