After finishing up his footy career without a premiership to his name, Nick Riewoldt has landed a spot on the Triple M’s footy line-up.
Riewoldt will officially join the team from round five of the AFL this weekend and will make regular appearances on Triple M Melbourne’s The Rush Hour, The Hot Breakfast, and Dead Set Legends, as well as on Triple M Adelaide.
Triple M’s head of content, Mike Fitzpatrick, said: “With AFL reaching more people and becoming more popular each season, it’s important that Triple M continues to invest in top-shelf talent to bring the insight and entertainment that our brand is famous for.
“Nick is about as good as it gets.”
Commenting on his new role, Riewoldt said: “I’ve been a fan of Triple M and appeared on many of its shows since my early playing days, so it’s great to officially break my way into the Triple M line up this year.
“I’m looking forward to sharing my experiences, insight and passion for the game with the loyal listeners, whilst enjoying a laugh.”
Riewoldt’s former teammate, Leigh “Joey” Montagna, has also become a full-time member of the Triple M commentary team, and also hosts Dead Set Legends alongside Jay “Jay-Z” Clark on Saturday mornings.
Additionally, Billy Brownless has also joined Triple M’s footy coverage for 2018. Already a Triple M stalwart, Brownless brings his weekday chemistry with JB to the Saturday Rub.
There’s even more additions to the Triple M footy team this season, with premiership winner and former Sydney Swans captain Barry Hall and AFLW Brisbane Lions midfielder Kate McCarthy.
Hall and McCarthy join the Triple M Footy call on the Gold Coast and Brisbane respectively.
