Steve Price replaces Ray Hadley on Triple M
Steve Price is gearing up to be back on the airwaves, with his program being picked up by Triple M in the regions.
Regionally, Triple M had previously played Nine Radio’s Ray Hadley Morning Show, however it recently announced that syndication would be stopping at the end of this month.
Since then, it has been widely predicted that Price would fill the void.
Price left his radio slot at 2GB back in 2019 and was replaced by Deb Knight.
He’s since returned to audio broadcasting with Southern Cross Austereo (SCA) via its LiSTNR app. His daily program, Australia Today, is currently streamed live on the digital LiSTNR platform from 7am to 11am (AEST).
Now, in a dual broadcast strategy, it will also go out on Triple M in Coffs Harbour, Griffith, Orange, Port Macquarie, Wagga, Dubbo, Mount Gambier, Toowoomba and Maryborough from 9am to 11am.
SCA’s recently installed head of regional content, Blair Woodcock, said he is thrilled to offer the program to regional Triple M listeners.
“Steve is one of the country’s finest broadcasters who is passionate about Australians living outside of the big capital cities and advocates for amplifying their voices and concerns. Australia Today with Steve Price will be an audio first with a dual broadcasting strategy across the LiSTNR app and our FM stations that we are excited to be launching,” he said.
Price, meanwhile, said he was excited to be inheriting the shift and taking his program into the regions.
“We launched Australia Today a couple of months ago and I have been thrilled with the response and am enjoying connecting with listeners across the country and sharing and debating views,” he said.
SCA said the program will continue to have content which is relevant to the whole country.
