Sports Entertainment Network will continue to orbit around the world of Dwayne Russell, with the host of Dwayne’s World extending his stay on the SEN airwaves for an additional two years.
In addition to hosting the 12 pm – 3 pm timeslot across the Melbourne, Adelaide and Tasmanian markets, Russell will continue to call key AFL matches for SEN and AFL Nation, along with other major sporting codes.
SEN Chief Executive, Craig Hutchison, says Russell has become a key pillar of SEN during his time at the network, “Dwayne has made the midday timeslot his own over the past three years, and we are delighted to have him continue on our airwaves.
“The relationship Dwayne has with his audience is unparalleled, and you can hear that with the ‘Midday Madness’ segment. You could be forgiven for thinking that every caller is his mate. That is the kind of connection he has built over the years.
“Dwayne has one of the most recognisable voices in Australian sport and isn’t afraid to use it to share his opinions and advance the day’s sporting agenda. He is extremely knowledgeable, and we look forward to him continuing to be part of the SEN family.”
Russell says he looks forward to continuing to connect with the SEN audience, “When you love sport like I do, it’s a dream job to be able to broadcast live sport and talk to fans about it every day.
“I love the adrenaline rush of daily live radio, which is why I have been doing it for over twenty years and want to keep doing it.
“I have always enjoyed being part of a team, and the team at SEN, both on and off the air, is fantastic to work with.
“It’s a privilege, and a lot of fun, to have a national talkback show where I hear what fans think and chat to them about their passion for three hours every weekday.”
Dwayne’s World airs every weekday from 12 pm – 3 pm on SEN 1116am (Melbourne), SEN SA 1629am (Adelaide), SEN Tassie 1629am (Hobart) and streamed via the SEN App.
