SEN’s latest foray into the South Australian market now has a Drive team.

Former FIVEaa and Nine Network presenter Kym Dillon will join experience sports journalist Michelangelo Rucci on Drive for 1629 SEN.

Kymbo & The Rooch will Drive listeners home from 4pm-6pm Weekdays, and Kym will also join AFL Nation on the network.

“Rooch and I have worked together for many years so I’m thrilled to be reunited on 1629 SEN SA,” said Kym.

“We are different personalities and enjoy an often ‘lively’ relationship which should make for good listening on the drive home.”

“Plus, as a passionate Crows supporter, I’ll keep Rooch honest!”

“SEN SA will change the sporting landscape in Adelaide being an around-the-clock sport offering,” added Rucci.

“Our show is going to let the fans speak and be a key part of an exciting new era in sport media in the state. Kym thinks he will be in charge, but the listeners will know differently, as they should.”

SEN is preparing to launch into South Australia for the second time, following an ultimately unsuccessful attempt in 2005.

The 1629 SEN lineup will be headed up by Kane Cornes, with Gerard Whateley and The Front Bar‘s Andy Maher also on board.

1629 SEN promises five hours of locally produced content daily.

“South Australia has a rich parochial sporting heritage so we are delighted to provide a new offering that will invite conversations, debates, news and views,” said PSN CEO Craig Hutchison.

“Together with our local Breakfast show hosted by Kane Cornes, Kymbo and the Rooch will contribute to thousands of hours of content made in Adelaide for South Australians each year.”

Going to be very hard to pick up 1629AM as most radios only go up to 1602. Good luck with getting listeners

As previous comments: Will SEN 1629 be a commercial station? Quick check of ACMA rules suggest commercial advertising on low power (400 Watts) narrowcaster “out of band” station is not permitted. And not on DAB+ as not “broadcast station”. Current lessee on 1629 Adelaide is Rete Italia Uno: off the air as of 6th December?

Unfortunate about the pick of frequency. Would love to tune in when possible, however, unless I have a tablet or computer close by or the phone streaming a bit difficult while driving. Good luck with the SA listeners.
