“We are very excited to be launching Australia’s first national commercial sports radio talk network, said CEO Adam Lang.
“Australians have a long established obsession with sport and we continue to see growth in a variety of sporting endeavours.
“There are more than 13 million sports fans in Australia. Sport is social, it bonds strangers together and we want to give them a voice and a platform to connect and engage.
“Our passion for telling the story flows into our broadcasts of Australia’s top sports. It made sense to extend our expertise into a national format that covers all sports all of the time.”
