Starting this Friday 15 March, Ray Hadley’s Continuous Call Team will return for their 33rd consecutive year on air, covering the National Rugby League on these Macquarie Media and syndicated stations:
• News Talk 2GB 873AM in Sydney
• News Talk 4BC 1116AM in Brisbane
• Macquarie Sports Radio 1278AM in Melbourne
• Macquarie Sports Radio DAB+ in Perth
• Network stations across Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea
The 2019 team will once again be headed up by Ray Hadley and Mark Levy, with Bob Fulton, Darryl Brohman, Erin Molan, David Morrow, Mark Riddell, Chris Warren, Joel Caine, David Riccio and Phil Rothfield all returning for another season.
In addition, the Continuous Call Team welcomes some new voices in 2019: Jamie Soward will provide co-commentary for Saturday Night Football with the Continuous Call Team, as well as expert insights on Macquarie Sports Radio throughout the season. Soward is a premiership winning player (2010, Dragons) with 216 games of NRL experience, as well as representative honours.
Anthony Griffin will provide expert comments during selected Continuous Call Team game calls in 2019. Griffin has seven years’ coaching experience in the NRL (Brisbane, Penrith) and his insights will prove informative and entertaining to our listeners.
Ray Hadley said: “It’s surreal to think that we started the Continuous Call Team way back in 1987. To be honest, I thought we were lucky to survive the first year! But now, 33 years later, our team and coverage is stronger than ever. It’s great to welcome some new voices to complement our established team – Jamie Soward and Anthony Griffin are respected figures of the game and their unique insights will be a valuable addition to the Continuous Call Team in 2019.”
Macquarie Media chief executive officer Adam Lang said:
“The Continuous Call Team, headed up by Ray Hadley, is one of the most successful and celebrated brands in Australian radio history. The 2019 on-air line-up is the perfect mix of youth and experience, ready to provide listeners the most comprehensive and entertaining coverage of the National Rugby League on radio. Aligning with the NRL’s goal of expanding the game’s coverage, we are delighted this year to be able to extend our broadcast of the Continuous Call Team into Melbourne and Perth via Macquarie Sports Radio.”
