“Every heave, every strain and every bang from the five rings of Rio”
Returning to the Network for the first time since 2011, Triple M will Rock Rio with Roy Slaven & H.G Nelson.
“It’s a dream come true to be back on Triple M after all of this time”, said Roy & HG.
Roy & HG will be covering the 2 weeks of festivities of the Games from August 8, with a one show each day from 12pm Monday to Friday both Triple M nationally and on Southern Cross Austereo’s LocalWorks network.
“We are both humbled and proud that the great organisation has seen the error of their ways and opened their doors for us, albeit for a fortnight”, said Roy & HG.
“Once every four years, Australians get very excited about the shot put, the single skulls and the shotgun. Triple M’s Mardi Gras of Medals will bring you every heave, every strain and every bang from the five rings of Rio.”
Head of Content for the Triple M Network Mike Fitzpatrick said, “It’s so cool to have these two broadcasting veterans back on Triple M for the world’s biggest sporting event.”
“Their insight, experience and understanding of the Games are second to none and will provide our listeners with a unique coverage of all that is going on in Rio.”
