AFL champion Luke Hodge joins SEN today making a weekly appearance on Gerard Whateley’s Whateley on Tuesdays as well as joining Crunch Time on Saturdays from July 4th.
The four-time Hawthorn premiership player and two-time Norm Smith Medallist said he was excited to make his radio gig debut.
“When I was living in Melbourne I would always turn to SEN for my footy updates and have remained an avid listener since moving to Queensland,” Hodge said.
“Since retiring I’ve wanted to stay connected to footy and develop my skills in the media. I’ve long admired Gerard – he really knows his stuff so I look forward to learning a lot from him,” he added.
Hodge will join other regular guests on Whateley including Patrick Dangerfield, Malcolm Blight, Robert Craddock and Kane Cornes for the Monday Means test.
“The magnificent career of Luke Hodge was marked by a rare football intellect, an IQ for the game and how it was to be played, unrivalled on the playing field. Every Tuesday we’ll have the chance to tap into Luke’s knowledge and experience to make sense of a season without precedent," Whateley said.
Hodge will also join SEN’s long-standing Saturday show – Crunch Time alongside Whateley, Andy Maher and Sam Edmund – covering all the big issues in footy - both on and off the field, including reviews of Thursday and Friday nights’ games and in depth previews of the weekend’s games to follow.
Whateley was the number one most downloaded mornings show in Australia in the past two Australian Podcast Ranker reports (April and May 2020).
