- 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
2004after 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 Cannaneup until mid- 2006. At this point, Cannane left Triple J radio to become the current affairs reporter for their jtvprogram. 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 Interviewingin 2006. [cite web|url=http://www.walkleys.com/the-awards/winners/2006-walkley-award-winners.html|title=2006 Walkley Award Winners|date= 2006-12-01|accessdate=2006-12-01]
