The ABC's new special events national digital radio channel brings you extra coverage of events and ideas that matter including live ball by ball coverage of Australia’s four test cricket tour of India. Every day there are things happening locally and around the world that attract the interest and attention of Australians all over the country. Festivals, speeches and addresses, celebrations and commemorations, big unfolding stories and small conferences discussing big ideas. Across its networks ABC Radio covers many of these events but often there just isn’t the time or space to cover everything. This new part-time digital radio service comes alive to give you extra coverage of special events beyond what can be provided by other ABC Radio networks.
