The Sports Daily

Gareth Hall

Gareth was born and raised in country Victoria, Birchup, home of the Mallee Bull.

From a young age he enjoyed all things Australian, highlighted by football and racing.

Gareth started off his media career at WIN TV in country Victoria where he quickly became the networks Sports Presenter.

He spent time in London on a working holiday before heading back to Australia to take up a position as a Sports Reporter for Channel 9 in Melbourne.

The move to SKY Channel took place in 2010. He spent six years covering all codes on the national racing broadcaster before heading West in August 2016 to take up his role as host of The Sports Daily.

Hall loves WA. The lay back atmosphere of Perth and the culture of this remote city suit the country boy from Victoria.

His love affair with WA coincided with the wonderful racetrack achievements of Hector Jay Jay, whom Hall has a share in.

His fondest memory to date with Hector Jay Jay was winning the Len Smith Mile at Menangle. It was the pacers first Group 1 and whilst Hall will treasure that memory forever the early price of $26 was also very mouth-watering.

Steve Butler

Steve was born in Manjimup. As the son of a long time newspaper man, he travelled far and wide in his juvenile years, spending time in Bunbury, Pinjarra, Geraldton and Merredin.

His early life as a journeyman gave the young Butler a great education and it also gave him an affinity with country folk. It helped him forge his future as a storyteller.

Butler has worked for WA Newspapers, now known as Seven West Media, for nearly 28 years.

His roles within have ranged from covering politics and sport to feature writing in the Melbourne, Bunbury and Perth Bureaus.

Butler is now Reporter at Large with the West Australian and this role provides the prolific writer with a degree of autonomy that can see him produce journalistic works of art show pieced in WA’;s only daily newspaper.

Butler also is used on occasions by Channel 7 as a sports reporter.

He is fiercely passionate about the regions and all things sport and racing.

His biggest passion is helping people tell their stories. If Steve doesn’t know someone, no one else does.

He fits The Sports Daily perfectly.

Darren McAullay

Darren has been the voice of WA racing for as long as most can remember.

The Kalgoorlie born ‘cob’ commenced broadcasting professionally from the age of 17.

McAullay spent 15 years with 6PR, ten of those years as Senior Harness Racing Commentator.

The past 22 years have seen McAullay as the Senior Racing Commentator at TABradio, Racing and Sport.

His roll call is extraordinary – 25 Perth Cups, 25 Derbies, 5 Inter Dominion series and five VRC Spring Carnivals when at 6PR.

McAullay has velvet tonsils and that asset has seen him excel as a bloodstock auctioneer for 30 years, an effusive master of ceremonies and well regarded on the after dinner circuit.

He has been Executive Officer of the Western Australian Racehorse Owners Association since 2007 and in that time has also been editor of that association’s publication, Winners Circle.

His presence in the industry has seen him become a regular host on international thoroughbred racing tours.

McAullay was a natural selection to join the team on The Sports Daily.

Digby Beacham

Digby was born and raised in Busselton before heading to Bunbury as a 16yo when in receipt of a cadetship at the Bunbury Mail.

He spent three years at the Bunbury Mail before taking up a position at Westside Football covering WAFL and AFL. He covered the 1993 & 94 AFL Grand Finals, including West Coast’s second premiership.

Beacham spent 12 months in Sydney working for AAP before returning to their Perth Bureau continuing on as their Sports Reporter.

In 1998 he commenced a full time / casual role with The Sunday Times as the secondary Sports Reporter before assuming the Chief Football Reporter position in 2003.

In 2007 he joined The West Australian as Chief Sports Reporter. He held that role for three years then was appointed deputy sports editor in 2010.

Beacham worked hand in hand with Dean Cox in writing his autobiography Iron Eagle.

During the 2016/17 racing season he has enjoyed success with Red Paddy and Very Angry Gal. He is a regular at the Stone Motherless each Saturday at Ascot.

Beacham is a well versed, font of knowledge ideally suited on The Sports Daily.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I get TABradio reception?

Radio: View TABradio frequency

Online: TABradio on-line

Mobile: on your mobile app store, install the "TuneIn Radio" app and search for "TABradio"

If none of the above satisfies: you can listen to TABradio anywhere in Australia by dialing 1900 953 111 and following the prompts (charge of 93c per minute applies!)

Why doesn't TABradio broadcast FM signal in metro area?

While FM frequency for the metropolitan area is highly sought-after by the TABradio management, the decision to switch to FM broadcasting is not entirely up to TABradio. Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) play a key role in the process of granting radio licences. If no additional FM radio licences are made available by the ACMA in the Perth metro area, it is impossible for TABradio (or any other radio station) to apply for.

When will TABradio be FM in metro area?

TABradio management works closely with the ACMA on this matter. Meanwhile, you can listen to us on 1206AM (Metro), online on tabradio.com.au or your iPhone or Android.

Is TABradio available in digital?

TABradio is currently not available in digital format. This decision depends on a separate government agency, Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA).
