Yep, still called AFL Nation. The various SEN streams taking the call even list it as that.
As for affiliates. In addition to Ace taking most timeslots and SRN/BOG taking at least two Saturday games, it seems that Resonate are taking the same games as SRN/BOG, while CAAMA, Cruise 1323 Adelaide, Voice FM 99.9 Ballarat and KLFM 96.5 Bendigo are taking some games.
In the previous rights deal when 3AW wasn’t syndicated, they strangely maintained the half time formatics from the rights deal before that one, where the 2nd break was preceded by a news update which in turn was preceded by whoever was hosting the coverage advising “relay station to take your commitments and rejoin us in about five minutes”.
Now that they have relay stations again, they’ve changed the format. The 2nd break is no longer preceded by a news update. Instead a news update follows the break and a full “Melbourne’s 3AW” news opener goes out to the network.
