From the radio airwaves and now to your television screens, popular Adelaide broadcaster Will Goodings is joining Network 10, as weekday sport presenter for 10 News First Adelaide.
Goodings, who co-anchors Adelaide’s leading commercial breakfast radio show on FIVEaa, will join News Presenter Rebecca Morse at the desk from Monday, 28 January.
He will report to 10’s network director of news content Ross Dagan.
Dagan said: “I know Goodings is a fantastic fit for our outstanding Adelaide team.
“I haven’t met a more enthusiastic sports fan, so he is perfect to front our sports coverage. His radio role means he is already well placed to know what matters most to the people of South Australia.”
Goodings said: “I couldn’t be more thrilled to be joining the team at 10 News First.
“Sport is a passion of mine and the opportunity to work on the biggest sporting stories in 2019 with the dynamic group at 10 is an incredible one.”
“Continuing to watch, read, and tweet about sport but getting to call it work is pretty exciting too.”
Goodings’ long-standing commitment to radio broadcasting has established him as one of South Australia’s most trusted, professional and admired media personalities.
His career spans over 11 years with Nova Entertainment’s commercial AM talkback radio station FIVEaa, where he has held a number of roles from producing to on-air announcing across the day.
In 2015, Goodings joined the breakfast show line-up alongside David Penberthy and prior to this he had a two-year stint in local politics as a senior media advisor.
10 Adelaide news manager Fiona Clark said: “I’m delighted to have such a talented broadcaster join our local team.
“Anyone who listens to the FIVEaa breakfast show each morning knows what a passionate sports fan Will is and I look forward to him sharing that passion with our 10 News First viewers.”
Goodings replaces Nick Butler who after five years in Adelaide, has made the decision to return home to Melbourne, accepting a position with Melbourne’s 10 News First and 10 Sport.
Butler’s last day with the Adelaide team is Friday, 25 January.
Dagan added: “Nick has a lot to offer in a combined news and sport role in Melbourne and we see it as a perfect fit for his experience and talents.
“He has my warmest thanks for his impressive contribution over the last five years.”
Butler said: “To be given the opportunity to work on sport coverage for Network 10 is a dream come true for me and a great honour.
“While I’m excited to return to my hometown and be welcomed back to 10 News First Melbourne, I leave Adelaide with a heavy heart.
“I have had five wonderful years in Adelaide and I will forever consider myself an honorary South Australian, especially as I met my wife Mel here.”
