SCA to launch Triple M Classic Rock & Easy Hits in Hobart

Staff Writer

SCA is set to launch two new digital stations into Hobart next month.

From April 1, Triple M Classic Rock and Easy Hits will be available in the Tassie capital, coinciding with CRA’s digital roll out in the region.

Survey #1 recently showed that Classic Rock is Australia’s #1 digital station, with 268,000 cume listeners.

Its popularity has seemingly benefited from SEN’s decision to get rid of Classic Rock Radio in Melbourne and add another new sports station called SEN+ last August.

“We are excited about launching Triple M Classic Rock and Easy Hits in Hobart and expanding our digital radio footprint even further afield,” said Southern Cross Austereo CEO Grant Blackley.

“We value the importance of being a part of the emerging digital radio landscape, with Hobart to be the first city outside of the major metro markets to have digital radio. The presence of our digital stations in Hobart further strengthens our position and commitment to investing in digital radio.”

The two new stations will be available via the Hit and Triple M apps and websites, and on digital radio, along with Hit100.9 and Triple M Hobart.

Yeah… Darwin… Grant Broadcasters have had DAB+ tests in Darwin for quite some time now.

SEN didn’t get rid of Classic Rock for SEN+ they removed Aussie. They dropped Classic Rock more than 2 years before.

Let’s get some facts in here.

Not sure about that mate – I was listening to Classic Rock on 1377AM until mid last year and it was widely reported that Classic Rock had changed to SEN+

Also, there’s even a petition with almost 1500 signatures to change it back –
