Andy Maher will once again leave his impartial calling at the door, captain of the unapologetically biased Blues commentary team, which includes Mark Maclure and club legend Wayne Johnston.

But Carlton fans won’t have it all their own way this week, with Demons Radio also launching, complete with its own version of parochial commentary, to be led by former Melbourne forward Russell Robertson, SEN’s Tom Morris and Melbourne AFLW player Lily Mithen.

Both Blues Radio and Dees Radio will be available on the SEN app.

Presumably Morris calling pbp?

Not sure why 3AW are bothering with Sunday afternoon AFLW with B-grade commentators. Surely the station’s target demographic would prefer The Weekend Break with Grubby.

This is the same station that doesn’t broadcast Thursday night footy.

Has to be some sort of financial kickback involved

I think 3AW is only doing AFLW to fulfill its latest radio deal with the AFL.

Sounds like it’s being advertised that MMM in Regional Qld are going to take both games on the Saturday (AFL and NRL), but whether they do the same in Brisbane on the main FM Station remains to be seen knowing there’s a chance of overlap between the end of the AFL and the start of the NRL game.

Triple M Brisbane is airing the Lions game right now. No doubt they’ll switch straight to NRL at the conclusion. Not sure about the regionals, but I imagine they will also follow.

7.55pm: As soon as the Lions team song played, NRL stations taking the AFL faded out the team song and went straight to the NRL game commentary. Only missed the first 2 minutes.


Corbin Middlemas hosting today’s ABC Radio Sunday AFL review show live from Lavington Sports Ground in Albury this afternoon, ahead of Ovens and Murray Football League grand final between Yarrawonga and Albury. That match will be broadcast on ABC Listen app nationally, as well as ABC Local Radio into Victoria and Tasmania from 2.30pm AEST.

It will also broadcast SANFL GF across South Australia and WAFL GF throughout Western Australia this afternoon.

Shane McInnes and Tony Leonard calling Essendon v Fremantle this afternoon, they aren’t B-grade commentators.

The core members of 3AW’s AFLW commentary team is: host Melissa Fistric (musician and producer/host on ABC Radio Gippsland on weekdays), former Carlton AFLW coach Damien Keeping, and 3AW breakfast producer Amelia Fuller as boundary reporter. Expert commentators include Carlton player Abbie McKay, and Melbourne premiership player Libby Birch, who is also part of the station’s AFL commentary team.


Very interesting choice that the ABC has gone for the O&M grand final rather than the VFL grand final across the whole state.

Travel can’t be a factor as the VFL is at Princes Park in Melbourne while the O&M is a nearly 4 hour trip north to Albury.


Very strange. Unless this was a deliberate jab at being snubbed for the rights to broadcast the VFL?

As mentioned in the ABC Local Radio thread, ABC Radio Brisbane and regional Queensland will broadcast the live coverage of the AFL Grand Final parade on Friday morning. Owing to the Brisbane Lions featuring in this years final.


Who is broadcasting the Brownlow Medal on radio?
