Tagged as:
Sportsfix is a Saturday sport show which runs from 12.00-1.30pm in the football season and from 9.00-10.00am in the summer sport season.
While we do cover the AFL news, the focus is mainly on local sport and local sports identities. Football and Netball are featured in the winter while cricket and other summer sport are covered in the warmer months.
The show leads into a direct broadcast of the GDFL match of the day in the footy season and we do an extended coverage of that league to support the connection. Women’s Football is another major focus as the local Cats team prepares for entry into the AFLW in 2019
We have interviewed AFL identities like Leigh Matthews, John Birt, Steven Hocking and David Bolton, while the summer show has a detailed coverage of the Geelong Cricket Club and all local leagues.
Rob Cameron anchors the show, while young journalist Josh Barnes, ex AFL player Sean Simpson, Community Radio identity Neil Butler and local athlete Paul Kininburgh also contribute during the footy season and Rob Malcolm assists with the cricket coverage in summer. We are very proud to support local sport and its characters.

Former Geelong footballer Sean Simpson and local journalist Josh Barnes help Rob Cameron cover all the news, previews and reviews and regular guests pop in to provide detailed analysis of all the big games and issues.

The show commences at midday each Saturday and leads into the live broadcast of the GDFL Match of the Day coverage on the Pulse. Due to the strong relationship The Pulse has with the GDFL, we will focus solely on that competition from 1.00 PM onwards, featuring interviews with the coaches, administrators and characters from the local scene.

We will also check in on the local soccer competitions and other topical sporting subjects as they evolve.

There will be podcasts of the very best interviews available on the Pulse website if you miss out on the show.
