MIXX FM will kick off its extensive broadcast coverage of Horsham District and Wimmera league finals at the weekend.

The MIXX FM team, headed by sports anchor Ben Williamson, will broadcast key finals throughout the next month.

The team will call the Horsham District second-semi final clash between Laharum and Harrow-Balmoral at Dock Lake Reserve on Saturday. On Sunday, the team will broadcast the Wimmera Football League elimination final between Ararat and Stawell from Horsham City Oval.

The calls will include blow-by-blow coverage and game analysis, with guests including former Richmond star defender Scott Turner, Horsham District league guru Grant Kuchel and former Stawell premiership player Anthony Redford.

Williamson, a former Wimmera league player and coach, said he had received positive feedback following games broadcast earlier this year.

“We’ve had an excellent response,” he said. “I’m working with a great team of blokes with plenty of footy experience. Along with calling the senior game, we will also be keeping listeners up-to-date with what else is happening around the ground, including netball results.”

Williamson said it was exciting to see Ace Radio increase its football and netball coverage across the region, with the aim of broadcasting games weekly next year.

Football broadcasts will start at 2pm.
