jeez things are tight at 3MP, those are some long shifts.


#5

Long shifts maybe but the best music station in Melbourne!


#6

Listened to Rodney Hogg’s segment on the Run Home on Tuesday via a podcast the interaction between the new hosts Mark Allen and Daniel Harford wasn’t too flash meaning that show may struggle in 2016.


#7

Meanwhile at 1116 M-E-N

Strong rumor hutchy and Pickering to get sacked from SEN. Hope it's true. Worst radio in Melbourne.

Take that tweet with a grain of salt since it followed both the men criticizing Robbo for how he’s been covering the Garry Lyon story on their radio show this morning


#9

2nd time I’ve heard this rumour…

Pacific Star Network have announced a 40% increase in revenue, for the half year to December 31st. In addition to their two AM and two DAB+ stations in Melbourne, the group also publish 7 print publications.

More at the Pacific Star website.

Always thought that PCN would be a great takeover target as their 2 AM stations could be made into a real threat to Fairfax in Melbourne. A competitive am music station and SEN which could be flipped to talk & sports with live afl.


#12

It’s Macquarie (rather than Fairfax) now, remember TVHead? :wink:

Of course, I agree that Pacific Star could be a potential takeover target if the “two station rule” was dropped.


#13

meh Fairfax controls the show really


#14

From Radio Today: "Pacific Star Network, who operate SEN and MyMP in Melbourne, have announced the abrupt departure of their recently appointed Group CEO George Papadopoulos.

Papadopoulos was appointed in January this year to a 3-year term, with a 6-month probation period."


#15

1116SEN have appointed a Sydney Sales Manager. Interesting.

Could we see 1170SEN Sydney? Maybe they could make a slightly different format of sport and music, or do a deal with MRN and shift NRL from GB to 1170AM?

Just another ‘out there’ SEN theory.


#16

I wouldn’t get too excited, it sounds like it’s more just to deal with Sydney based clients advertising in Melbourne.

Suggestions for SEN Programming in 2017;

  • Breakfast with Frank & Ox is progressing nicely move them to 5:30am-8:30am in line with 3AW, ABC 774 & RSN.
  • Mornings with KB consistant as ever start him at 8:30am in line with Neil Mitchell and Jon Faine.
  • Afternoons 12noon-3pm Needs a New Presenter from outside the station and it’s needs new contributors from outside the station a total overhaul.
  • Drive 3pm-6pm Mon-Fri with Daniel Harford, 3pm-4:30pm needs a total overhaul.
  • 6pm-7pm Take the Sportsday program from Crocmedia.
  • Evenings with Finey in present time slot though contributors and format needs an overhaul.
  • Off the Bench this program is totally unacceptable in the current era. Consindering the ABC’s current budget constants poaching the Coodabeen Champions is very realistic. Saturday 9am-12noon.
  • AFL Coverage produce inhouse 1 game per calendar day with same 2 commentators, same 2 expert commentators across the weekend and 1 boundary reporter. Then other games throughout the weekend take the AFL Live coverage from Crocmedia.

[/quote]How does this differ from their current setup? Don’t they already produce some games themselves?

Brigitte Duclos is now reading the news on SEN Breakfast. Haven’t seen any media reports about this but she started yesterday (Monday 18/7).

Didn’t they close their newsroom?
