Phil Gould, Roy and H.G., and Ian Chappell join Macquarie Sports Radio

Macquarie Sports Radio has added Phil Gould, Roy and H.G., and Ian Chappell to its Saturday lineup.

The announcement:

Saturdays on Macquarie Sports Radio are bigger than ever, with three major shows set to entertain sports fans.

With the Ashes underway, The Cricket Show: Ashes Edition, offers the best analysis, opinions and talkback with one of the game’s greats, former Australian captain Ian Chappell.

One of the biggest names in rugby league is shaking things up following the launch of The Gus Gould Show. Every Saturday morning from 9am, NRL legend Phil ‘Gus’ Gould gets stuck into the big issues in the game, with footy fans given the chance to talk with Gus via the open line.

And after a special series of ‘Just Short of a Length’ throughout the Cricket World Cup, Roy & H.G. are now a permanent part of the Saturday morning line-up – just in time for the  Ashes.

MML Chief Executive Officer Adam Lang said: “Roy & H.G. are an iconic duo, and we are delighted to have them entertaining the growing Macquarie Sports Radio audience, live every Saturday morning. And for those who can’t hear it live, Just Short of a Length is also available as a podcast, which reached the position of #1 sports podcast on the Apple podcast charts shortly after launch.

“We are also proud to be the home of The Gus Gould Show, and to give sports fans the opportunity to speak with one of the most respected figures in rugby league. Phil Gould’s insight into the game is unparalleled, and now those views and opinions are being shared with our audience every Saturday morning.

“Macquarie Sports Radio has already developed a reputation as the home of the best radio cricket commentary in Australia, through our coverage of the summer of cricket and the ICC World Cup. Having Ian Chappell sharing his views on Australia’s Ashes campaign every Saturday morning is very exciting for our team, our clients and our audience.”
