Fresh from making Australian radio history in 2018, Gerard Whateley is headed back to the Super Bowl to bring the magic of one of the world’s biggest events to life for Australian radio fans.
The first Australian to call a Super Bowl on radio, and to widespread global acclaim, Whateley returns to the microphone on Monday February 4 from 9am on 1116 SEN with all the action of Super Bowl LIII live from Atlanta.
Two colossal contests took place today and it was the Rams and Pats who delivered in the big moments which will see them come together at the decider next month.
The call will also be heard on 1629 SEN SA and on Macquarie Media’s News, Talk Sport DAB+ channels in Sydney, Brisbane and Perth.
Whateley, whose self-titled 1116 SEN morning show will broadcast from Atlanta in the lead up to Super Bowl LIII, will be joined by a new co-host with a household NFL name.
SEN today confirmed highly respected journalist Larry Fitzgerald Senior will also join the show as Whateley’s expert commentator.
Fitzgerald, covering his 39th Super Bowl, is one of the NFL’s most respected writers and eletric media talents.
He is also the father of Arizona Cardinal Larry Fitzgerald Junior, one of the best wide receivers ever to play the game.
Larry Senior is the only father to ever cover his son in a Super Bowl.
This 53rd Superbowl promises to be the biggest yet on the 1116 SEN airwaves, after a big year with a weekly NFL Now broadcast of the match of the round, each Monday morning during the season.
The station’s breakfast host, Garry Lyon, is also travelling to Atlanta alongside cohost Tim Watson, and will be broadcasting from Radio Row each day in the lead up.
Lyon will broadcast breakfast from the stadium on Super Bowl day.
1116 SEN Chief Commentator Gerard Whateley said he was excited to be calling his second Super Bowl.
“From the purity of a football game for the highest stakes to the spectacle and grandeur associated with the event, we’ll transport listeners there like never before,” Whateley said.
