Given we published a story in January about the Radio Network winning the rights to broadcast the Rugby World Cup, it was slightly surprising to get another release from its arch enemy MediaWorks Radio today saying it too had won broadcasting rights for the tournament.
The Rugby World Cup is only a few months away and most New Zealanders, including our mincing strutter of a prime minister, are starting to get a little hot under the collar. But, unlike the seemingly excessive television broadcasting deal, where most of the games will be available to view on three different channels, there will be just one official radio station. So for all those poor sods who can’t get themselves in front of a screen, the Radio Network’s Radio Sport will be the place to hear all 48 games after it was named as the official radio broadcaster of Rugby World Cup 2011.
