LiSTNR is preparing its summer sports content as the year comes to a close.
Kicking off with Triple M Rocks Cricket live from the pitch at Perth’s Optus Stadium on Thursday, 14 December, Triple M will deliver a commentary line up of names led by former Australian Cricket Captain and Triple M’s Mark Taylor AO.
When ‘stumps’ have been called, listeners can continue to access unlimited sport content on LiSTNR, anytime and anywhere. The Willow Talk podcast, published twice a week, features sports commentator Adam Peacock, former Australian cricketer Brad Haddin and current Australian Women’s Cricket Captain, Alyssa Healy.
In addition, LiSTNR’s The Howie Games hosted by Mark ‘Howie’ Howard, continues his interviews with sporting heroes from around the world. Howard, who recently returned from the ICC Cricket World Cup in India, has also just published his World Cup Tour Diary series which is available now in The Howie Games podcast. Episodes feature behind-the-scenes access to Australia’s World Cup victory and chats with current and former stars including Ricky Ponting, Brian Lara TC, OCC and Pat Cummins.
Meanwhile, Sports Bizarre’s Mick Molloy and Titus O’Reily feature a special two-part series on Keith Miller AM MBE, in addition to an evergreen selection of episodes that delve into bizarre stories within the history of sport.
Host of The Howie Games, Mark ‘Howie’ Howard said: “Commentating cricket on Triple M is the ultimate job, sitting alongside absolute legends of the game, calling the action and having a laugh is as good as it gets. Then, when the day’s play finishes, download a podcast or three and continue your sport fix. Happy summer days!”
SCA head of sports content, Ewan Giles, said: “We are really proud of LiSTNR’s sports line up. From being home with the biggest names in cricket to some of the best yarns from great storytellers, it really is all happening on LiSTNR!”
