3-time Cats Premiership player, former club captain and the official “unofficial” Mayor of Geelong, Cameron (Lingy) Ling is set to join the K rock Breakfast team on a permanent basis kicking off Monday May 2nd.
No stranger to the media since his footy retirement in 2011, ‘Lingy’ will continue his footy commentary work with Channel 7 however, after some excellent performances, including a few best on grounds coming off the bench with K rock’s Tom and Loggy, he’s more than earned his regular spot on the team.
Breaky host and Content Director Tom Lewis, says, “Lingy has had a wonderfully long and colourful history with K rock dating back to his early Cats playing days and after playing the long game, his grand plan to sneak on to the show permanently has finally succeeded!
“I’d imagine the delight he’ll feel when we turn the mic on for the first time will be something akin to winning the granny in 2011?.. but not quite on the same level as 07″
“We pride ourselves at K rock as being leaders in local and there’s no one who lives and breathes Geelong and the Surf Coast more than Cameron Ling. Whether he’s helping old ladies across Moorabool Street or showing the groms how it’s done at Point Addis.
“Lingy’s love for our local region is obvious, and he’s simply a cracking bloke to be around. He has more stories about footy and the Cats than you can poke a stick at, so strap yourselves in for a fair bit of that gear.”
