Macquarie Media has announced that two of Australia’s cricketing greats, Glenn McGrath and Mike Hussey, are the latest additions to its cricket commentary line-up.
McGrath (pictured above, right) and Hussey (pictured above, left) will join Darren Lehmann and Ian Chappell in the Macquarie Macquarie Sports Radio commentary box this summer, as part of the company’s new six-year agreement with Cricket Australia.
Macquarie Media will feature coverage of every ball bowled of all the Domain Test Series, Gillette One Day and T20 Internationals, the KFC Big Bash League and the Commonwealth Bank Women’s International Series on its new Macquarie Sports Radio network.
Macquarie Media CEO Adam Lang said the network was thrilled to secure the signatures of McGrath and Hussey.
“The achievements of Glenn McGrath and Mike Hussey in the game of cricket really do speak for themselves,” he said.
“They are both highly respected throughout the world of cricket internationally and terrific on air. To have them as part of the Macquarie Sports Radio Summer of Cricket broadcast is very exciting for the audience, clients and ourselves.”
Commenting on his new commentary gig, McGrath said: “I’ve loved being part of Macquarie Radio’s Summer of Cricket broadcast in recent years and can’t wait to be back in the thick of it again for another summer.
“With India, South Africa, Sri Lanka and New Zealand coming out to Australia, we’re in for a big challenge against some of the best players in the world in both men’s and women’s formats.”
Hussey said: “It’s going to be another huge summer of cricket and I am very excited to be part of Macquarie Radio’s Summer of Cricket.
“We have a great team with some of the best callers around plus a fantastic blend of experts that are able to dissect the game and give incredible insight.”
