2GB and 3AW revamp their footy teams for 2023

2GB have revamped the line up for the Continuous Call Team in 2023, and made changes to its flagship Wide World of Sports program and Podcast offering.

Former rugby league international Allana Ferguson will join the CCT in its 37th season on air, alongside Kangaroo and NSW Origin stars Boyd Cordner and Josh Morris.

Listeners through 2GB, 4BC and right across Australia will still hear all of their favourites too, with Darryl Brohman, Mark ‘Piggy’ Riddell, Mark Levy and David Morrow returning in 2023, while Ray Hadley will headline the commentary box during the State of Origin Series and NRL Finals.

2GB’s Wide World of Sports program will be ably led by Mark Levy again in 2023. He’ll be joined by Premiership coach Shane Flanagan, NSW and Premiership Captains Paul Gallen and Brad Fittler, together with legendary broadcaster Ken Sutcliffe.

And new to 2023, from 9Podcasts will be an all-new NRL podcast featuring Storm, QLD and Australian legend Billy Slater.

Nine’s Director of Sales, Total Audio, Ash Earnshaw, says, “We are the number one destination to engage sport fans, through trusted and big name talent and the heritage of our Wide World of Sports superbrand.” 

3AW has also revamped its team for the 2023 AFL coverage with Jacqui Felgate, one of Melbourne’s best-known broadcasters across TV and radio, will joining the commentary and analysis team in 2023.

Felgate will be joined by returning favourites Matthew Lloyd, Jimmy Bartel, Leigh Matthews, Caroline Wilson, Tim Lane and a host of others.

Felgate says, “I grew up listening to 3AW footy while standing with my mum in the outer at Kardinia Park.

“I’ve loved filling in over recent months and I’m delighted to be able to talk footy with our listeners next season. It really is a privilege to work alongside such experienced and talented broadcasters.”

Further, Sam McClure (pictured) will be the inaugural host of 3AW’s Wide World of Sports radio program, set to debut Wednesday, November 2 at 6.00pm.

Wide World of Sports will launch two new AFL Podcasts in 2023.

Ash Earnshaw says, “Nine continues to invest in market leading talent with different voices, providing advertisers new ways to connect with engaged sport audiences. 

“Across Total Audio at Nine, Wide World of Sports continues to be a focus as a platform for brands across live radio, live stream and podcasts where we are growing year on year. It is exciting to bring our  live and local AFL content to sports fans, as part of our national Wide World of Sports brand footprint.”
