Sports Entertainment Network announced today that Australian Football Hall of Fame player and coach Nathan Buckley will join the SEN Breakfast line-up in 2022.
Buckley, who ended a long-term tenure as head coach at Collingwood Football Club last year, will join SEN on Mondays with Garry Lyon for Breakfast with Garry & Bucks and on Whateley on Tuesdays with Gerard Whateley.
Buckley says “SEN has become the one-stop shop for sporting information and content in sports mad Melbourne and beyond. Im looking forward to working with the team here to produce content that educates and entertains. Garry and Gerard, who are two of the most established and effective broadcasters of their time.
“Im passionate about sport and what constitutes high performance so to provide perspective and context to the weekends events and unearth the stories of the combatants as we do is something I hope to achieve for the listeners benefit.”
After years of juggling breakfast radio with TV commitments as well as the impact of Covid-19 on them and their families, Garry Lyon and Tim Watson have made the decision to reduce the number of days on SEN Breakfast in 2022.
The new breakfast line-up will be
- Garry & Bucks – Garry Lyon & Nathan Buckley will be heard Mondays, 6am- 9am commencing February 28th.
- Garry & Tim – Garry Lyon & Tim Watson will be heard Tuesdays – Thursdays, 6am – 9am commencing March 1.
- Kane & Kingy – Kane Cornes & David King will be heard on Fridays, 6am – 9am from February 4. David King will also join Whateley for the Monday Means Test each week.
On the reduction of days and team additions, Tim Watson says, “Garry and l have decided we can only tolerate each other 2 days a week – but after a long negotiation he has agreed to try 3 – I look forward to reuniting with him and hope this new arrangement sees us still together until October.”
SEN Group Radio Director Sam Thompson says “This is an outstanding breakfast line-up – Garry Lyon, Tim Watson, Nathan Buckley, Kane Cornes and David King. With the combination of years played and coached plus their broadcasting skills, SEN will be the place for expert sport analysis shaping the AFL debate in 2022.”
