The station, to be hosted on AndrewHaug.com, will be the first in Australia of its kind. This is exciting news for patrons of the genres, with Haug making the guarantee: “You name it, we’ll have it covered. Or simply suggest it and we’ll try it out”.
A statement was posted on the site today, explaining that the ex-triple j presenter “would continue spreading the message of our beloved Heavy Music! I am mega excited to be soon launching Australia’s first ever 24/7 dedicated Rock & Metal Online Radio Station! Cool huh?.”
The project will run just like any other online radio station, offering a selection of programs plugging the finest content from here and abroad as well as competitions and listener requests. No official launch date has been announced yet, and the team are currently in the process of fixing all the minor issues before they’re good to go live.
You can look for updates through HaugMetal, Haug’s Facebook Fanpage or the official website . After gaining our trust through his triple j program The Racket, which he hosted from 2001 to 2011, listeners will flock to the 24/7 online station.
