SEN bolsters on-air talent stocks ahead of SENQ launch
Sports Entertainment Network has welcomed some of Queensland’s leading sports presenters ahead of the launch of 693 SENQ, headlined by Channel 7 senior sports reporter Ben Davis and talented broadcaster Alissa Smith.
Davis will jump in the hosting chair for 693 SENQ with Mornings with Ben Davis each Monday from 9am – 12pm, wrapping up Queensland’s weekend sporting results and news.
Smith – a former presenter on Fox Sports News – will join Davis each Monday as co-host and producer for additional programs from the 693 SENQ studios in Brisbane (Fortitude Valley) and the Gold Coast (Varsity Lakes).
Smith and Davis join the line-up for 693 SENQ that includes Cameron Smith, Pat Welsh, Ian Healy, Katie Brown, Gary Belcher, and Scott Sattler.
AFL legend Luke Hodge will also contribute to the 693 SENQ airwaves.
Each week, 693 SENQ listeners will be able to enjoy four NRL matches called live in addition to the QRL Hostplus Cup. For AFL fans, every Brisbane Lions and Gold Coast Suns game will be broadcast live.
The station will broadcast ball-to-ball action from the Australia v Sri Lanka Test Series and the hunt for gold at the Commonwealth Games, and will follow the Socceroos on their quest for glory in the FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
693 SENQ will also continue with tradition, with the famous Christmas Lights competition to continue in 2022.
SEN Group Commercial Director Brad Johnson says the focus on Queensland talent is a win for listeners and partners alike.
“With such an impressive on-air team, we will hit the ground running with locally produced content for sports-loving Queenslanders. The commercial uptake so far has been fantastic, and all our talent are committed to working with our valued partners.”
SEN’s Queensland Content Manager Jason Matthews says he looks forward to providing Queenslanders with content specific to them.
“Whether it’s the chant of ‘Queenslander’ at Suncorp Stadium or the walk to the GABBA for the first day of the test match in summer, Queenslanders just love their sport.”
“With the line-up we have put together, we will bring listeners the very best live coverage of sport with the latest news, views and opinions from some of Queensland’s greatest sports stars.”
