The Sports Entertainment Network (SEN) has assumed the 1593AM frequency in Melbourne for its racing station, SENTrack.
The new station is already rolling with a strong lineup.
The Odds Couple with Simon O’Donnell and David Taggart is up at 8AM Saturday with previews of the weekend races, followed by Saturday Trackside at 11:30AM with Jack Heverin joining O’Donnell and Taggart promising punters the latest mail on race day.
The Sunday lineup is headlined by 11AM show Tricks of the Trade.
For weekdays, listeners are treated to Harness Racing Victoria’s Blake Redden and Jason Bonnington from 11AM to 1PM with Talking Trots on Track. Taggart, Heverin, Campbell Brown, and Sam Hargreaves bust up the 1PM-5PM block with Trackside.
The 5PM-6PM block on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday, will have Thrill of the Chase keeping greyhound fans tuned in, while Hargreaves and Molly Haines take over the 6PM-10PM slot with The Lids Fly.
The new station also resulted in current frequency holder Rete Italia formally transitioning to DAB+, both in Melbourne and Sydney.

Ex-Cosmos Media CEO/co-founder Kylie Ahern has come forward with a new STEM newsletter called The Brilliant.
Scheduled for release every Thursdays, the publication is designed to educate the public on STEM-related matters, including profilers on leading researchers and new scientific advances.
It will also support the advocacies of industry body STEM Matters, of which Ahern is the CEO.
“There’s definitely a hunger from within the STEM sector, and from the wider community to hear from the experts and be inspired by the progress and results in meeting the biggest challenges that we face as a society. The Brilliant plugs that knowledge gap,” said Ahern.
The plan calls for The Brilliant to be published as a free newsletter, with paid advertisers to follow if readership grows.
