The first radio show will run tonight, June 4th, at 6 PM EDT for an hour and then each Thursday at the same time. 

"Aussie Football Rules America with Eddie McGuire" will run "on SiriusXM's Dan Patrick Radio channel (ch. 211), recapping the previous week's AFL action and looking ahead at the exciting matches in the weekend ahead" according to the press release issued today, and the broadcasts are also online at SiriusXM.com and on the SiriusXM app for connected devices and speakers.

Coverage of finals and the Grand Final is included. Matches will be condensed to fit in a two-hour time slot. AFANA will follow up with SiriusXM and add more to this in the coming days and update our radio page. SiriusXM will be providing AFANA with the match selected each week in advance of the Thursday airing. (Update: 6/5/20: Our staff writer in Melbourne, Johnson Leung, reports that Melbourne media is suggesting that the weekly match could be the Thursday night match from 14 hours earlier and that the Grand Final could be live.
