Very rare case of the combined 2KY/4TAB evening service (as it is now) being presented out of Brisbane tonight - definitely sounds like one of the RadioTAB hosts doing it.

Maybe the increase in Covid cases in Sydney has caused issues at Frenchs Forest today. Obviously Tabcorp’s preference is to do it at Sky HQ in Sydney but it at least shows they’re still able to do it out of Brisbane where needed, instead of just defaulting to a Sky 1 simulcast early as they may have in the past.

His stint with the Liberal Party didn’t last long, did it? Anyway, back to a more natural groove for him in sports media

Victorian Liberals don’t have much good news to market themselves with.

No headway despite longest, punitive lockdowns. Too busy tearing themselves apart, changing leaders, drink driving and who knows what else.

Bad governments flourish when oppositions are worse.

Looks like no (or very little) music based programming happening on RadioTAB this Good Friday (compared to previous years). This evenings announcer said they would be back with Racing Coverage from 12pm tomorrow before handing over to the Sky Racing TV simulcast.

Looks like quite a card of racing coming from Victoria, Tasmania, Western Australia and ACT tomorrow, along with international racing - so makes sense to covering it, despite many venues like TABs, Casinos and Pubs not being open.

Yes, i imagine people are just betting on their phones, and relying on Radio TAB and Pay TV for live coverage.

Good move. Love RSN for continuing to invest in their own content. There is real value for an industry owned station rather than a totaliser.

Veteran racing broadcaster Andrew Bensley is switching from SENTrack to RSN.
