iHeartRadio Australia today announces the launch of two new radio stations. Planet Oz, featuring the best of Australian music and The Showdown which will provide the ultimate soundtrack for some of the country’s biggest events on the sporting calendar.
Launching just in time for this weekend’s AFL and NRL Grand Finals, The Showdown is a pop up station that will get audiences in the mood to cheer on their favourite team for all high intensity, heart stopping sporting clashes. It will provide the soundtrack to some of Australia’s biggest sporting events throughout the year.
The showdown will pop up on iHeartRadio Australia for all major arena events that stop the nation including Grand Finals, State of Origin, Olympics, World Cup, and Commonwealth Games so audiences can tune in and listen to a mix of big anthem tracks and songs guaranteed to spark the spirit of competition.
Since 2014, Planet Oz has aired as a dedicated Australian music radio program on Sydney’s KIIS 1065 and Melbourne’s KIIS 101.1 broadcast weekly on Sundays between 6am – 8am and Wednesdays from 10pm to midnight.
It will now also be accessible as a 24/7 digital station hosted by Gordie Waters on iHeartRadio.
The likes of Guy Sebastian, Vance Joy, Jessica Mauboy, Dean Lewis, Samantha Jade, Peking Duk, PNAU and Starley have all featured in recent interviews on Planet Oz.
The new station extends iHeartRadio’s loyal support for Australian artists and music following the recently launched iHeartCountry Australia station, and the iHeartRadio Dance station which features seven Aussie DJs as hosts of their own show.
