1 Richos Athletics Radio Show on Fri Dec 09, 2011 2:15 pm


Airwaves set to welcome dedicated track and field program
Jason Richardson will host The Flame, a weekly show dedicated solely to the world of track and field, from this Sunday at 8.00am (AEDST) on SEN 1116.

Richardson will combine his current role as an esteemed radio and tv presenter with his passion and plaudits in athletics, including winning the Stawell Gift.

Listeners can expect to hear Richardson speak to the biggest names in athletics, from across the globe, as well as the latest news in the sport both at home and abroad, between now and the end of the 2012 Australian Athletics Tour.

Richardson said: “I’m a huge supporter of athletics, having been involved firsthand as an athlete and now as a fan, so I’m delighted that SEN have agreed to the show.

“With the addition of the SEN ipod app and the website’s ability to stream live it also means that this show won’t be limited to Victorians, it will be available all over Australia. Plus the podcast will be available after each show as well.

“Athletics is one of the most diverse sports in the world, with hundreds of nations competing in it on a world stage and both men and women celebrated equally, so there will undoubtedly be plenty to talk about on-air. And of course it has one of the most recognised faces in Australian sport at the moment, in Sally Pearson.”

The opening Flame show will see rising star Regan Lamble (ACT), who finished in the top 16 at her first IAAF World Championships in the women’s 20km walk, join Richardson in the studio, as well as 2011 Stawell Gift starter Kim Collins join them for an on-air chat, following his recent 100m bronze medal at the IAAF world championships in Daegu (KOR).

Returning features including, London-bound, will focus on how Australian athletes are tracking in their bid to make next year’s Olympic team.

Dallas O’Brien, CEO of Athletics Australia, added: “Without a doubt The Flame show is a huge boost to our sport as it gives us a regular mouthpiece and maintains a regular talking point on the airwaves.

“SEN’s unprecedented support to make this show work has been extremely welcomed and their digital offering means our fans across the country can enjoy the show as well.

“We also want it to be an opportunity for sports fans to engage with the show, so we will be utilising our social media platforms to allow listeners the chance to pose questions as well as win money-can’t-buy prizes.”

Listen to The Flame Show this Sunday at 8.00am (AEDT) on SEN 1116 or at and click ‘listen now’.
