Steve Price turns to Nine colleagues for contributors to new lunchtime show

The Macquarie Radio Network has revealed a roster of regular commentators for its new networked Steve Price lunchtime show.

The Steve Price Show kicks off on Monday on 2GB in Sydney, 4BC in Brisbane and other stations across regional Australia.

Daily contributors will include News Corp columnist Rita Panahi and MRN’s Mieke Buchan.

MRN is majority owned by Nine, with most of the new contributors coming from within the network talent stable.

Former Today host Kar Stefanovic will be a contributor to the show every Monday, while Nine’s Erin Molan will have a regular slot on Wednesdays and Today co-host Deb Knight will be on every Thursday. Nine’s rugby league commentator Phil Gould will contribute on Fridays.

Macquarie CEO Adam Lang said: “News doesn’t stop breaking when you break for lunch – and with Steve Price behind the microphone, neither do we.
