Hack (radio program)

Hack (radio program)

"Hack" is the title of a current affairs radio program on Australian national radio broadcaster Triple J. The program explores current affairs from the point of view of Triple J's target market (the 15-35 age range) and as a result is more left-wing and less conservative than other programs.

The show began at the start of 2004 after a shake up of the station's programming. The previous current affairs program, "The Morning Show" from 9 a.m. to midday, was axed and the half-hour "Hack" was its replacement, from 5.30 p.m. to 6 p.m.

It was hosted by Steve Cannane up until mid-2006. At this point, Cannane left Triple J radio to become the current affairs reporter for their jtv program. Kate O'Toole was Cannane's replacement as host of the radio program.cite news|url=http://www.theage.com.au/news/tv--radio/radio-waves/2006/07/19/1153166390707.html|title=Radio Waves|publisher=The Age|date=2006-07-20|accessdate=2006-11-17]

One of Cannane's stories on "Hack", "Petrol Sniffing, Pill Testing and the Cost of War", earned him a Walkley Award. He won the Walkley Award for Broadcast Interviewing in 2006.
