Road to Rio, a live, weekly half hour panel show every Saturday, will feature the best of our athletes and their stories, introductions to the fresh faces on our Olympic team, a look back at the great moments in Olympic history and all the latest news from home and overseas as Australia's team for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games takes shape.

Special guests and experts include Olympics 'mastercaster' Bruce McAvaney, four-time Olympian Lauren Jackson, the 'voice of cycling' Phil Liggett, gold medallist Steve Hooker, Sydney 2000 Olympic Games Opening Ceremony flag bearer Andrew Gaze, Oarsome Foursome's Drew Ginn, and three-time Commonwealth Games gold medallist Tamsyn Lewis.

A rotating panel of co-hosts includes Johanna Griggs, Mel McLaughlin, Jim Wilson, Kylie Gillies, Mark Beretta, Ryan Phelan and Giaan Rooney.
