Wide World of Sports launching in 2020
Macquarie Media will launch a dedicated sports show, Wide World of Sports, on 2GB and 4BC in 2020.
Wide World of Sports will be hosted by accomplished broadcaster, and host of The Continuous Call Team, Mark Levy and will air Monday to Thursday from 6pm to 7pm.
The show will draw on the broad suite of talent from Nine’s Wide World of Sports to provide the latest news and commentary across the sports that Aussies love.
Levy says Wide World of Sports will give people the opportunity to voice their opinions.
“It will speak to the biggest names in Australian sport and give Sydneysiders and Brisbaneites what they need to know about the games they love.”
Macquarie’s Head of Content Greg Byrnes says he is excited to launch the new show.
“Wide World of Sports is an iconic Australian brand and we are thrilled to bring it to radio with a dedicated daily sports program.
“It’s great to have a sports fanatic like Mark Levy in the chair hosting. He’ll be able to draw on the full gamut of Nine’s talent for sports like rugby league, tennis, cricket, netball and so many more to cover the latest happenings and drive the daily agenda across the games and codes that matter to Sydney and Brisbane.”
