Jason Pine To Take Over Radio Sport Morning in 2019

Tuesday 27 November 2018

27 November 2018 – Sports fans rejoice; Radio Sport is gearing up for one of the biggest sporting years for New Zealand sports with three World Cups taking place across 2019.

The Cricket World Cup will be in England in May to July, with the Netball World Cup also being held in England in July. The Rugby World Cup will take place in Japan from September to November.

Ahead of the mammoth year, Radio Sport is welcoming Jason Pine as the new Morning host.

Not entirely new to the station, Pine has filled in for the past six months and will make his fixture permanent in the new year as the host of Radio Sport Morning, 9am-12pm.

Jason Winstanley, Head for Talk at NZME says that the addition of Pine completes a strong week-day lineup. “2019 will be a massive year for Radio Sport and it’s fantastic to have Jason on the team for it. From the World Cups through to national competitions and grassroots sport, there will be a lot to cover, analyse and comment on and Radio Sport will be the place to do it.”

Pine is a familiar Wellington sports voice on Radio Sport and has been the football editor and commentator for over 10 years. He led the Radio Sport coverage of the All Whites in South Africa at the 2010 Football World Cup and was part of the commentary team for this year’s Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.

Pine is looking forward to becoming a permanent member of the weekday line up. “Sport is a real passion of mine and I’m incredibly lucky to talk about it for a career. After filling in on the morning show for the past six months I’m looking forward to making the move permanently and continue to work with the awesome Radio Sport team on a daily basis.”

Radio Sport will continue to bring New Zealand sports fans coverage of all major events with another year of Radio Sport’s live free-to-air radio commentary of all Blackcaps home cricket series, Super Rugby, Warriors in the NRL and All Blacks home tests.

The new morning host isn’t the only change to the 2019 line up. From 2019, Radio Sport Auckland will hear The Country with Jamie Mackay in the midday hour. The Country has been broadcasting in other Radio Sport markets since 2007, and this change will see The Country broadcast nationwide on the station.

The Radio Sport changes will come into effect in 2019.
