SEN 1116am celebrates 20 years on air


It’s a big week for SEN 1116am, with the Melbourne sports station celebrating its 20th birthday.

And to mark the occasion, it’s welcoming back some familiar voices tomorrow morning (Friday).

The January 19th SEN Breakfast program promises a nostalgic tribute to the many hosts, guests and callers who make up the station’s legacy.

Reminiscent of SEN’s inaugural broadcast on January 19th, 2004, Garry Lyon and Tim Watson will lead the journey down memory lane.

There’ll be special guest appearances from former hosts and contributors who have helped shape the station’s history.

Former host Mark Fine, who anchored the post-game show ‘Finey’s Final Siren,’ will join in the festivities.

Finey’s unique format gave passionate footy fans an outlet to cheer or vent about their team’s performance after the final siren sounded.

Appearances by SEN veterans – including Anthony Hudson, Mark Allen, David Schwarz and Dermott Brereton – will further fuel the nostalgia.

And Tony Schibeci will return to the desk to provide sports updates throughout the morning.

SEN CEO Craig Hutchison says “Reflecting on an extraordinary two decades for SEN 1116am, we extend our sincere gratitude to the exceptional talent, dedicated staff, loyal listeners, and valued partners who have played pivotal roles in shaping our journey since our inception.”

“We are proud that SEN 1116am continues resonating with audiences, tapping into the passion that binds fans to the teams and sports they love. As we celebrate this milestone, we eagerly anticipate welcoming back some of SEN’s cherished talents, which have been pivotal in laying the foundation for our success over the past twenty years.”

I have history with SEN. I was one of the earliest callers on the first broadcast in 2004. I won AFL Grand Final tickets in 20 or five. I had my own and sponsor on the Eien show. I also went to The Lindsey Hassard club lunch with Billy Balas and my sponsor, Philip Apaco from Australian construction and equipment sales that particular company donated money to my day service Knoxbrooke.? On 29/4 Gary came to the Knox book carols in Courtyard with his children. He gave me some stuff at the time I was West supporter. I am now North Norman supporter. He also gave me a signed West Coast Eagles jumper of Chris Judd that was when channel 9 did the AFL. I also won a couple of books missing in one of the communism and the other one then Ricardo photography
