Clint Wheeldon flew from Perth to Melbourne to call tonight’s Richmond v Collingwood preliminary final for ABC Radio alongside Alister Nicholson. I assume Clint will fly back home in the morning to commentate the other prelim at Optus Stadium.

National Indigenous Radio Service will have the first all-Indigenous commentary team for the AFL Grand Final on Saturday. It will be led by Chris Johnson along with Tony Armstrong, Darryl White, Nathan Lovett-Murray, Josh Hill and Chris Egan.

ABC Local Radio in Victoria and WA will broadcast the Grand Final parade tomorrow (Friday) from midday AEST.


#665

I do wonder if Chris Johnson has ever done kick-by-kick calling before?

The ABC commentary team will be Alister Nicholson, Clint Wheeldon and Brett Sprigg. Experts to be revealed later.


#668

How are they going to use Alister Nicholson, Clint Wheeldon and Brett Sprigg during the match? all 3 doing play-by-play?


#669

Probably one on the boundary.


#670

some of thosw who today will do football commentary on radio will be busy during the off season Tim Lane Cricket wth MacQuarue Sports Radio /channel7, James Brayshaw Cricket Channel7, Anthony Hudosn, Gerard Whateley & Jack Haeverin Cricket sen, Clinyt Wheldon Cricket ABC Radio.


#671

Brett Sprigg on the boundary I think, similar to last week’s West Coast v Melbourne in which Nicholson and Wheeldon doing play-by-play.


#672

That seems like overkill from Triple M, do they REALLY need that many talking heads? I know it’s a Grand Final, but still…

Mind you, the others listed are nearly as bad in that respect.


#673

Triple M have listed everyone who is there in some capacity over the day. 3AW didn’t but would have as many there nearly. Interestingly, there is no Mark Howard listed there. I read earlier in the week that he was working, so no idea what’s going on there.


#674

From what I have read TripleM did not list Mark Howard anywhere …
Mark Howard her left TripleM


#675

This article begs to differ with Howie leaving Triple M.


#676

ABC Radio commentary team for today’s AFL Grand Final: Alister Nicholson and Clint Wheeldon (play by play), Brad Sewell, Shane Woewodin, Mark McClure. Kelli Underwood on the boundary. Matt Clinch and Brett Sprigg in the team rooms.


#677

SEN are currently replaying the grand final on their main station


#678

It’s one thing for TV stations to do that, but radio?

Though I know ABC Grandstand Digital does it too.


#679

SEN replayed both of the exclusive coverage they had and then the AFL nation call. Hopeless programming.


#680

ABC Local Radio in Victoria has been replaying the grand final in full on Sunday afternoon for many years. Seems like SEN is following suit.


#681

Pretty sure SEN has replayed the GF for many years on the Saturday night - remember listening to it a few years ago

Former FiveAA and Channel Nine presenter Kym Dillon is joining Crocmedia’s AFL Nation team next year.
