SEN Gold Coast refreshes brand and moves into live sport
SEN’s Gold Coast station, 1620AM, has unveiled a new look and lineup ahead of the NRL and AFL seasons.
The station will broadcast all Gold Coast Suns AFL matches and ‘many’ Gold Coast Titans NRL matches. It will also offer live coverage of the State of Origin via a parochial lens, dubbed ‘Maroons Radio’.
New offerings for the station include Mornings with Matt White from 10am – noon on Monday to Thursday, as well as Morning Glory with Matty Johns on Fridays from 9am. An hour of Whateley will run from 12pm – 1pm, and Drive with Joel and Fletch will also be heard on 1620 AM.
SEN Queensland’s Breakfast with Pat and Heals will still be on air from 6:30am – 8:30am.
Evening program Sportsday with Gary Belcher and Scott Sattler will be extended to two hours.
Trackside on Wednesday and Saturday afternoons, as well as Andrew Bensley’s Bensley will remain on 1620 Gold Coast and will also get prime position on the Queensland interface of the SEN app.
Sports Entertainment Network’s head of radio, Sam Thompson, said the network was committed to providing more sport and localised content to Queenslanders.
“SEN has long had a strong listener base on the Gold Coast and we intend to dial-up a locally-relevant sport offering for them,” he said.
“We’re delighted with the response from listeners to Pat and Heals for Breakfast, as well as the Sportsday boys of an evening, so we plan to build on that with live AFL and NRL coverage in support of the local fanbase.”
