Five AA Adelaide

“…historical sister station” 3AW?

Goodings and Penberthy aren’t the most accurate communicators. I’d say it was a poor attempt at simplifying the connection.

AA & AW in ownership aren’t sister stations, however share news resources and content such as Moclair’s middawns.

And previously shared some AFL coverage before FiveAA were forced to take AFL Nation.

Why forced? What happened? I wasn’t aware.

The previous AFL radio rights deal had Crocmedia (now SEN) as the overall right holder and so the AFL Nation call was the default call and generally the other rights holders, who sub-licensed through Crocmedia, could only air their own calls if the the AFL Nation call was already broadcast by another station in that market. The only exceptions may have been FIVEaa and Triple M metro with calls of games involving local teams.

Fiveaa is far better taking 3AW than AFL nation it’s a much better fit. Hopefully they can go back to taking some pregame from 3AW.

With Sportsday moving to Cruise they will need to fill the 6pm-7pm slot. The sports show might just go an extra hour.

SEN are adverising David Wildy as a caller so he might officially move to SEN after doing Sportsday and Fiveaa calling.

They already announced that the sport show with Rowey and Tim will extend to 7pm.
