The next biggest event after the Grand Final

Staff Writer

This weekend’s Grand Final is the biggest event on the  AFL Calendar, and outside the Brownlow’s during the week, the next biggest thing after the finals is who is picking up whom and who is trading whom.

Crocmedia is set to launch NAB Trade Radio this Monday on the AFL website and through the Official AFL Live App.

The all-day online radio broadcast covers all AFL trade, draft and free agency news, and interviews all the big players in the NAB AFL trade period. The news breaking service is the only program which covers all player movements as they happen.

NAB Trade Radio  will be hosted by  a raft of footy experts and authorities. The day will be headlined by  Damian Barrett  along with  Terry Wallace who will  be on every afternoon from 2pm – 5pm, interviewing all the big names in the trade and free agency world.

 “The NAB AFL trade period is an incredibly exciting time for avid footy fans. NAB Trade Radio is the only program that enables the most passionate of football followers to stay abreast on all club movements up to the minute.  The program is a fast-paced news broadcast where we interview all the big names in the AFL, take callers and engage with listeners via social media,” Damian Barrett said.

Crocmedia executive director Chris Giannopoulos said NAB Trade Radio is a great example of how Crocmedia works collaboratively with partners to create sought after content for consumers.

“In partnership with the AFL we are able to feed the passionate AFL fan’s thirst for news and information as to how their team is seeking to improve its playing roster, through NAB Trade Radio live as it happens during the course of our non-stop eight hour daily online radio program” he said.

AFL Media General Manager, Peter Campbell, said the NAB Trade Period was "an exciting time for fans looking to next season."  

 “For many AFL fans, the interest in our game continues beyond the conclusion of the Grand Final. The NAB Trade Period, culminating with the NAB AFL Draft in November, is an opportunity for supporters of all clubs to look ahead to the following season with great anticipation and excitement,” Mr Campbell said.

“Our partnership with Crocmedia through NAB Trade Radio is a great way for supporters to engage in the makeup of their club’s playing list for season 2015.”
