Two of South Australia’s most acclaimed footballers, Kane Cornes and Ben Hart, are joining forces for Crocmedia’s nightly South Australian radio sporting fix.
The duo, who both played 300 games and won premierships, are uniting for Crocmedia’s all new SA version of Sportsday. Crocmedia has partnered with Nova Entertainment, Grant Broadcasters and Southern Cross to achieve whole state distribution of the show.
Sportsday will air live from 6pm weeknights live on Adelaide’s Fiveaa from January 23.
Most regional markets, however, will take their own live version of the show from 5pm.
Leading brands McDonald’s, KIA and Lumo Energy are among those to have already committed their support to both versions of the show, which brings together two of South Australia’s favourite sons. The show will be produced by Ben Cameron, based in Adelaide.
Meanwhile Fiveaa has announced the drive sports show with Stephen “Rowey” Rowe and Mark “Bicks” Bickley will return on weekdays from 3pm to 6pm from January 23.
Sportsday will hit the Fiveaa airwaves from 6pm to 7pm weeknights.
Jon Blake will return to Fiveaa to host a one-hour show from 7pm to 8pm at the end of March, leading into Jeremy Cordeaux from 8pm to Midnight. Fiveaa will host a news hour from 7pm to 8pm until Blake’s return.
The new Sportsday also launches in Victoria today with Gerard Healy and Dwayne Russell on 3AW and network stations with a one- and two-hour version depending on which station you listen to.
The Perth edition of Sportsday with Karl Langdon and Paul Hasleby will air on 6PR from tonight with a version also for WA regional stations.
Meanwhile the Sportsday Queensland and Sportsday Central shows with Gary Belcher and Scott Sattler will continue as they have done already in 2017.
