Sports Entertainment Network (SEN) has announced that broadcaster Anthony Hudson will be departing the network after almost two decades.
In the release, SEN noted the pivotal role Hudson played in the station’s development, commenting on his significant impact behind the scenes as well as on air.
“Whether it be calling cricket, AFL or a variety of other sports, Hudson has been a huge contributor to SEN, proven by the multiple Australian Football Media Association awards he has won for his outstanding broadcasting.”
SEN Chief Executive Officer Craig Hutchison is disappointed to see Hudson leave but is grateful for his contribution to SEN.
“There are few that have played a bigger role and contributed as much to SEN as Anthony has, particularly in the early days where his behind-the-scenes work was critical to SEN’s survival,” said Hutchison.
“Huddo is much loved by our audience and our team and is undoubtedly one of the great broadcasters of Australian sport, now and over history.
“While we are undoubtedly disappointed to lose Anthony and would have loved for him to remain as part of the SEN family, we are respectful of the challenges around his availability due to TV commitments. We wish him, his wife Eloise and family well with his next move that suits this availability. He’ll be missed.”
Hudson leaves SEN to purse other opportunities. His replacement on Friday night football on AFL Nation alongside Chief Sports Caller Gerard Whateley will be announced in the near future.
