From 2001 till 2009, I was a member of the ABC Radio football commentary team. My role every weekend includes reporting on injuries and interchanges as “boundary rider”, pre-game interviews with a radio mike, and post-game interviews in the rooms. I frequently contribute to the pre-match and post-game panel discussions. I covered the finals series in all seasons. I have also co-hosted the pre-match show on a number of occasions.
I have also done interviews and provided background information on most of the 774 daytime shows including Red Symons, Jon Faine, Virginia Trioli, Lyne Haultain, Lindy Burns and the Coodabeens. I have also covered athletics for ABC radio.
My other major radio involvement has been with SEN, an all sports radio station in Melbourne. As well as giving regular interviews on sports medicine topics on all their shows, I have done two feature series, the first on the history of the Olympic Games leading up to the Athens Olympics in 2004, and the second on the history of the Commonwealth Games leading up to the Melbourne Commonwealth Games in 2006. These involved a one hour weekly show for approximately 20 weeks for each. During the Commonwealth Games I also did two daily segments previewing and reviewing the athletics events. I also regularly co-hosted the Friday night show on Fitness Issues with Craig Harper. During the 2008 Beijing Olympics I co-hosted direct coverage of the Games from the Melbourne studios. From 2007 to 2010 I hosted a weekly segment on The Good Oil with Mark Doran discussing sports medicine related issues.
