AFL Nation coverage for Round 11

Triple M coverage for Round 11

Triple M Sydney will broadcast Friday’s match between Sydney and Richmond on analogue radio, while St Kilda v North Melbourne will air on Triple M Adelaide on Sunday afternoon before Port Adelaide host Essendon. Triple M Melbourne will cover Collingwood v Carlton.

EDIT: Triple J’s Declan Byrne is the boundary reporter for ABC Radio’s call of Sydney v Richmond at the SCG on Friday night.

EDIT 2: Saturday night’s Gold Coast-Hawthorn match in Darwin will be broadcast in traditional Yolngu Matha language Milingimbi woman Sylvia Nulpinditj alongside William Gumbula and Baykali Ganambarr.

EDIT 3 29/5: Geelong star Tom Hawkins makes his ABC Radio debut on Sunday for its coverage of St Kilda-North Melbourne clash. Hawkins says it’s only his second AFL game as expert commentator.


No AFL on 7 in Wa today -


Triple M coverage for Round 12 - It will cover all six matches this round. Strangely, Demons v Swans this Saturday will be broadcast in Sydney only on digital radio, even though the analogue frequency is available (the NRL clash between Sea Eagles and NZ Warriors won’t be heard on Triple M Sydney).

AFL Nation coverage for Round 12

Ebony Marinoff, her former Crows teammate Talia Radan (coach of West Adelaide in SANFLW) and The West Australian reporter Jordan McArdle are expert commentators for the ABC’s call of Adelaide v West Coast on Saturday.

Triple M coverage for Round 14

Triple M will broadcast GWS v Bulldogs in Sydney but not Port Adelaide v Sydney (even on DAB+). Go figure.

AFL Nation coverage for Round 14


Nine Radio bosses in Sydney have come to their senses as Thursday Night Football returns to 3AW tonight for the Richmond v Carlton blockbuster.


The blockbuster factor is probably the only reason. If it wasn’t Carlton and Richmond I don’t think they’d bother.


Last week’s broadcast of Richmond v Carlton was a one-off for 3AW, as it is skipping this Thursday’s clash between Melbourne and Brisbane Lions.

Triple M coverage for Round 15 - former Kangaroos coach Dani Laidley will provide expert comments for Bulldogs v Hawks on Friday.

That’s a bizarre decision considering Melbourne v Brisbane is a 2 v 1 match-up.

Most Dees fans probably listen to 774 anyway so there is little benefit for 3AW broadcasting it! :laughing: :wink:


Possibly a Chance to Broadcast Sea Eagles and Storm Instead?

No 3AW will never broadcast NRL (unless maybe a Grand Final).

Sister station wouldn’t have the rights being a Thursday Night game (MMM have it exclusively).


AFL Nation coverage for Round 16

Triple M coverage for Round 16 - SA and WA will both get Richmond v West Coast and Fremantle v Port Adelaide on Sunday. Sydney misses out on Essendon v Sydney on Saturday afternoon.


Herald Sun reports that the latest footy radio ratings show that 3AW and Triple M are the big winners, both posting pleasing numbers. Jimmy Bartel and Mark Allen’s Sunday Sport program, airing Sundays from midday to 2pm, is a winning combination doing well for 3AW, rating 12.4. SEN remained the same at 2.7 overall.

Noticed this on the AFL site - Mandarin language coverage streaming of the Collingwood v North game

Do any stations take that call, Google suggests 3ZZZ had some involvement - but there’s other programming on there at the moment.


Kevin Bartlett makes his return to 3AW Football today for Hawthorn v Adelaide at Marvel Stadium, according to Mark Allen on Sunday Sport just now. It will be Bartlett’s first call since Round 1.

EDIT: KB revealed during pre-game that his wife has been very ill and he has been away caring for her. He won’t be calling today’s game, it will be Matt Granland and Bruce Eva leading the call.


Triple M coverage for Round 18

(I notice the same team is calling Hawthorn v West Coast and Essendon v Gold Coast on Sunday - could be a typo)
