Triple M is set to ROCK its 15th season of NRL with the highest reaching* commentary team on radio confirmed to make a return in 2020.
Triple M Footy will be led by a team whose insight into the game is unrivalled on radio: Peter Sterling, Gorden Tallis, Ryan Girdler, Wendell Sailor, Mark Geyer, Emma Lawrence, Tony Squires, Paul Kent, Ben Dobbin, Brent Read and James Hooper. They will be joined by two of rugby league’s best play-by-play callers Dan Ginnane and Anthony Maroon, both will continue to call Triple M home for many years to come.
With the return of Dead Set Legends (DSL), hosted by Wendell Sailor, Jude Bolton and Gus Worland on Saturday mornings from 10.00am-12.00pm in Sydney, weekends on Triple M are set to be massive!
DSL will roll into the Saturday Scrum at 12.00pm with Ryan Girdler, Emma Lawrence, Sterlo, Tony Squires and rotating guests, covering the latest rugby league news and providing the lead-up to Saturday arvo footy.
Then the Sunday Sin Bin with Paul Kent, Gorden Tallis, Anthony Maroon and James Hooper will dissect the weekend’s action, set the agenda for the upcoming week and provide the hype for Sunday afternoons live on the MMMs.
Triple M Footy also welcomes back its long-term partners for the 2020 season including: Rheem, McDonalds, Mitsubishi, Coates Hire, Tyrepower & CBUS Super.
Head of Triple M, Mike Fitzpatrick, said: “It is with great pleasure we announce the return of our all-star NRL commentary team. A team who delivers breaking coverage both on and off the field with around 20 hours of Triple M NRL from Thursday to Sunday each week.
“The renewal of our five-year NRL radio rights deal at the beginning of 2018 reinforced our commitment to remaining the largest commercial radio broadcaster of the NRL. We are loved by men 25-54 and all people under the age of 70!
“Here at Triple M, NRL coverage is something we are passionate about, love doing and, most importantly, something we are good at. I’d also like to make a special mention of our partners who are back on board with us for 2020, without them our broadcast wouldn’t be possible.”
