Network Ten has announce that its old flagship sports news show will return to Australian TV screens live later this month.
Hosted by Matt White (pictured above, centre), Sports Tonight is back after a seven-year hiatus, boasting a fresh look while delivering all the latest sports news, match results and game highlights for all sports from Australia and around the world.
Sports Tonight will also feature a variety of opinions and in-depth analysis from regular expert panellists including current and ex-sports stars, such as three-time AFL premiership player Josh Gibson (pictured above, left) and rugby league legend Laurie Daley (pictured above, right).
The team will put ‘Footy in Focus’ each week, while Sports Tonight’s famous ‘Play Of The Day’ segment will feature once again.
Joining the team each week will be sports reporters Caty Price and Scott Mackinnon, who will report on the weekend of AFL and NRL, focusing on the big issues and all the latest breaking football news.
White said: “It is fantastic to be bringing Sports Tonight back in a rejuvenated style. This is a sports news show which won’t disappoint and will bring all the latest sports scores, highlights, expert opinion, interviews and analysis to viewers.
“We are introducing a number of new and exciting segments, as well as including the much-loved Play Of The Day. We plan to have a lot of fun each week.”
Sports Tonight returns on Sunday 15 July at 9.15pm on Ten and the WIN Network.
