Crocmedia to produce new radio show for Golf Australia

Sports production company Crocmedia has announced it will be launching a nationally syndicated golf program, Inside The Ropes, in a partnership with Golf Australia from this Saturday.

The program is an extension of a podcast launched by Golf Australia in May last year with the deal being Crocmedia’s first announcement since the company finalised its merger with Pacific Star Networks last month.

Inside The Ropes will be hosted by radio presenter, AFL commentator and golf fan, Andy Maher alongside GA’s media manager, Mark Hayes.

The program will air at 6am Saturday mornings on Melbourne’s 1116 SEN and be syndicated to almost 150 radio stations across the country with the show available as a podcast from 4pm each Wednesday.

“To have the support of Golf Australia to produce a program of this nature and broadcast it to golfers around the country is something we value greatly,” said Crocmedia’s content and partnerships director, Sam Thompson

“The addition of Inside The Ropes, and the assembled team of quality experts to our suite of content is a welcome one given the interest and participation levels of golf in Australia.”

Golf Australia’s digital and communications director John Sutherland said the aim of the partnership with Crocmedia is to promote the game.

“At Golf Australia, we aim to raise the overall level of interest in the game of golf which hopefully leads to increased participation in the sport. This program provides a vehicle for this,” Sutherland said.
