Hamish and Andy sign early long-term contract with SCA’s LiSTNR

Southern Cross Austereo (SCA) has today extended Hamish and Andy’s contract with LiSTNR.

In the most recent Triton Digital Podcast Ranker report, the duo came in second place overall with 941,049 listeners across four new episodes.

Grant Blackley – SCA CEO, Dave Cameron – SCA Chief Content Officer, Andy Lee and Hamish Blake.

Hamish & Andy’s Remembering Project, now in its fourth season as an exclusive first run on LiSTNR, sees the pair delve into their archives from 2,500 radio shows across two decades to see if they can recall what was going on behind the scenes at that exact time.

Also on LiSTNR is Andy Lee’s children’s book series, Do Not Open This Book, an interactive children’s podcast series, voiced by Andy.

Hamish and Andy said: “We said we’d do 40 shows for 40 years, so I guess we are an eighth of the way there. We love doing the podcast, it’s our favourite part of the week.

“We look forward to providing a similar type quote in the year 2057 from a nursing home where minders allow us to pretend we are still podcasting and lie to us that heaps of people are listening.”

Dave Cameron said: “There’s only one Hamish and Andy and we are thrilled they will remain part of the SCA family for a long time to come. We are proud to have the boys sit alongside a premium line-up of Australia’s most-loved talent at SCA, who are proven performers in both live and on-demand audio.

“Hamish and Andy’s approach to everything they do has their own distinct and ingenious brand of fun that audiences across the country continue to enjoy. We’re also very excited to announce that the boys will host highlights from their No.1 comedy podcast as a special summer Breakfast show throughout December on the Hit Network for the first time.”

The Hamish & Andy podcast will be played in Hit’s Breakfast slot across the nation leading into Christmas.

Listen to Hamish & Andy Podcast for Breakfast on Hit summer Breakfast nationally from 5 December 2022 and on LiSTNR. Hamish and Andy’s no. 1 comedy podcast, Hamish & Andy and all seasons of Hamish & Andy’s Remembering Project are available on the LiSTNR app.
