It's a Nova Red Room Global Tour special this week:

Podcast 50/2014:
Nova Red Room Global Tour #1

Tony Thomas, group marketing director, Nova Entertainment
Insights into how Nova Entertainment runs its Red Room operation and how the sponsors for the Global Tour became involved. Hear about the challenges the company faced with logistics, costs and finding the artists. Essential listening if you should have your brand associated with special events like this and probably good to listen to if you work in the media business and have ever run a competition for listeners. Recorded in the Qantas lounge at LAX during the Samantha Jade Red Room.
(Check out our first Tony Thomas podcast too from 18 months ago talking about marketing basics and his marketing career in and out of the media sector.)


Podcast 51/2014:
Nova Red Room Global Tour #2

Kent Small (Smallzy), Nova Network evening host, Tour MC
Nova's ACRA-winning national evening host is the Nova brand's music guru and he appears on his second Mediaweek podcast recorded at the end of the Global Tour. As well as covering off all the action from the tour, Smallzy talks about his evening show this year, his relationships with music companies (and who needs who most) and we even get to hear about his strictly behind-the-scenes executive producer Zach.

Podcast 52/2014:
Nova Red Room Global Tour #3
Nigel Lopez-McBean
, assistant director social media & content marketing, Optus (the sponsor)
The final podcast in this series of three recorded in the USA. We tracked down the rep for sponsor Optus in one of the biggest breakfast buffets in Las Vegas. Lopez-McBean had been not just living it large in swanky hotels full of beautiful people and popstars, he had been filming them too. He gives us some insights into the soon-to-be released piece of content he has been filming during the Global Tour. He also talks about Optus and how social media plays an important part of marketing and customer satisfaction for the telco. Nigel is such a good bloke he will have you thinking about saying Yes and tearing up your existing telco contact if you're with a competitor!

This week in AFL on Seven: 4 days 8 games

If you don't have Fox Footy, tracking where and when to watch the AFL can be a challenge. Here's a guide to the 8 games Seven will be screening at different times into different markets over the four days of footy this weekend.

ROUND 7 2012
AFL on Seven continues LIVE and FREE on Friday Night Football as the Demons take on Hawthorn.
Hawks rookie list player Amos Frank is the special half time feature as we look at his fascinating pathway from remote Anangu Pitjantatjara Yankunytjatjara Lands in the north west of South Australia to the Box Hill Hawks and the Hawthorn Football Club.

Saturday Night Footy has a top four clash as the top-of-the-ladder Eagles travel to Etihad Stadium to face off against the Bombers. We get an insight into the Naitanui family in a catch-up with Eagles star ruckman Nic and his twin brother Mark. We cross live to Perth to speak with the injured Eagles forward line including Josh Kennedy and Mark Nicoski plus Andrew Embley. Bombers young gun Dyson Heppell takes us on a day of his work experience at Tennis Australia. And Rachael Finch catches up with Tom Hawkins’ girlfriend Emma Clapham.

Saturday Afternoon Football promises another nail-biting clash from AAMI Stadium as the Cats travel to AAMI Stadium to take on the Crows. Tom Harley catches up with his old mate from Kardinia Park and now Adelaide senior coach Brenton Sanderson for a revealing half time interview.
Monday Night Football sees the Blues battle the Saints and host Brian Taylor goes behind the scenes at Carlton with an access all areas pass to find out the secrets to their success so far this year.
