Lehmo to host ABC Radio’s flagship AFL shows

Anthony Lehmann will captain Saturday and Sunday AFL programs in 2018. 

Saturdays, Lehmo will team up with sports commentator Angela Pippos to look at the big issues and the happenings in AFL that week, and on Sundays he’ll be joined by the Outer Sanctum’s Emma Race for a relaxed eview of the week that was, before previewing the games.

Lehmo presented Melbourne’s Gold FM Breakfast for 7 years before he and co-host Jo Stanley were axed (despite securing the station’s best-ever breakfast results in a decade), and prior to this co-hosted the national drive show on Triple M with Wil Anderson. He was also a regular panelist on Chanel 10’s Before the Game for more than six years.

“Growing up in the country in the ‘70s and ‘80s, ABC Radio was our connection to the world of sport. My Dad pretty much had a mini transistor radio stuck to his ear every Saturday of my childhood.

“For me now to be broadcasting to the ABC’s loyal audience on the station’s flagship sports program is a true honour. I love every element of our great game from the players to the coaches to the fans to the colourful characters and I hope to speak to them all this year. I can’t wait to get started!” Lehmo said.

“I am delighted we have been able to bring together such a strong team for our weekend programs,” said Nick Morris, Manager ABC Sport.

“Lehmo, Angela and Emma, supported by our AFL team around the country, will provide great insights and entertainment to our audiences across the season.”
