Across the nation weekend radio programming changes from next Saturday until the end of September . Summer talk or music features will once again be put to bed as the radio becomes a source for weekend footy coverage.

NRL has kicked off already and stations that take the call have adjusted programming to suite. Even though there has been a pre season with AFL, the official AFL season starts this coming Thursday night and we will begin to see full on game by game radio coverage by the main players of 3AW, 6PR, Fiveaa, Triple M, SEN and the ABC. Regionals whether taking AFL or NRL will have coverage for most Saturday and Sunday games.
