This is similar back in late 2017 where Fatty Vautin was axed from the NRL footy Show (but still remained at Nine) with a huge revamp of this show. Erin Molan replaced vautin as the host of the show and ratings have started to take a dive. Since Erin Molan went on maternity leave, James Bracey has taken over as host of the show. As it approached to the finals footy, the ratings have crashed to new lows.
The thing is that Rebecca Maddern will leave the Footy Show but will remain at Nine to host Ninja and Australian Open Tennis. But the point is about Sam Newman. We don’t know what’s going to happen with the footy show.
