2GB/4BC Continuous Call Team Commentator and Macquarie Sports Radio Mornings Host David Morrow has been nominated for the National Rugby League (NRL) Hall of Fame.
The NRL has announced a list of nominees for the newly-created Broadcast Media and Print Media categories of their Hall of Fame.
Five Broadcast Media nominees were announced – Frank Hyde, Ray Warren, Rex Mossop, George Lovejoy and Morrow.
David Morrow’s career has spanned almost five decades, including the coverage of eight Olympic Games and six Commonwealth Games, as well as cricket, rugby union, soccer, horse racing and general broadcasting. His passion, however, has always been rugby league – covering the game on radio and television for 30 years; and with Macquarie Media since 2015.
After hearing the news, a tearful David Morrow said: “When I received a message last night, I dead-set thought it was a gee-up! I have been around the game of rugby league for a while, but never, ever, did I think that I would be nominated for something like this, especially in the company of Ray Warren, Frank Hyde, Rex Mossop and the great George Lovejoy. It is a very humbling experience.”
Fellow Macquarie Media broadcaster, Ray Hadley, has also paid tribute to David Morrow: “David has dedicated four decades to sports broadcasting and he’s one of the pre-eminent rugby league callers in the country. He very much deserves this nomination.”
One of the five nominees will be formally inducted into the NRL Hall of Fame during a ceremony in Sydney on August 14.
