iHeartRadio beefs up local content with two new stations
iHeartRadio Australia today announced the launch of two new radio stations, both of which focus solely on local content.
Planet Oz, which has aired as a dedicated Australian music radio program on the KIIS Network since 2014, will now also be accessible as a 24/7 digital station hosted by Gordie Waters on iHeartRadio.
According to iHeartRadio, the new station extends the platform’s loyal support for Australian artists and music following the recently launched iHeartCountry Australia station, and the iHeartRadio Dance station which features seven Aussie DJs as hosts of their own show.
Meanwhile, The Showdown is also launching just in time for this weekend’s AFL and NRL Grand Finals.
The pop-up station will get audiences in the mood to cheer on their favourite team by providing the ultimate soundtrack for some of the country’s biggest events on the sporting calendar.
The Showdown will pop up on iHeartRadio Australia for all major arena events that are coming up on the calendar, including State of Origin, Olympics, World Cup, and Commonwealth Games.
