Nine’s influence grows at Macquarie Sports Radio with new shows

• Nine’s NRL veteran Gus Gould is now hosting a 9am program for one hour on Saturdays

Saturdays on Macquarie Sports Radio have been overhauled with the Nine Network lending some of its talent.

Nine’s NRL veteran Gus Gould is now hosting a 9am program for one hour on Saturdays called, simply, The Gus Gould Show.

Also now part of the Saturday morning programming schedule is long time Nine cricket commentator Ian Chappell with an hour at 8am called The Cricket Show: Ashes Edition.

The radio station has also now signed Roy and HG to a regular Saturday morning program from 10am until noon after a limited edition series during the World Cup called Just Short Of A Length.

Macquarie Media chief executive Adam Lang said: “Roy & HG are an iconic duo, and we are delighted to have them entertaining the growing Macquarie Sports Radio audience, live every Saturday morning. And for those who can’t hear it live, Just Short of a Length is also available as a podcast, which reached the position of #1 sports podcast on the Apple podcast charts shortly after launch.

“We are also proud to be the home of The Gus Gould Show, and to give sports fans the opportunity to speak with one of the most respected figures in rugby league. Phil Gould’s insight into the game is unparalleled, and now those views and opinions are being shared with our audience every Saturday morning.

“Macquarie Sports Radio has already developed a reputation as the home of the best radio cricket commentary in Australia, through our coverage of the summer of cricket and the ICC World Cup. Having Ian Chappell sharing his views on Australia’s Ashes campaign every Saturday morning is very exciting for our team, our clients and our audience.”
