Matty Johns, Matt White and Katie Brown join 1170 SEN

The Sports Entertainment Network (SEN) has landed one of Australia’s great rugby league and media characters, Matty Johns for its new Sydney radio station 1170 SEN.
Johns will make his return to radio, joining 1170 SEN when it debuts during the 2020 NRL Grand Final week in October, joining a line-up including Andrew Voss, Matt White, Bryan Fletcher, Joel Caine, Katie Brown and Jimmy Smith.
The former player turned media talent will host Friday mornings 9am-12noon, as well as an hour on Monday mornings on breakfast with Vossy and a catch-up with Fletch and Joel during drive each week.
He says, “When Hutchy first approached me, he offered me 9am – 12noon Mondays – but I said I wasn’t interested.  It’s hard to justify having a beer at that time on a Monday… but Fridays… well that’s different, so I said yes!” 
“I love radio, but after eight years of breakfast shifts, I needed a break.  The lure of a 24/7 sports station with a proven track record, plus the opportunity to join a team of this calibre, was too good to refuse.”
In other signings, leading sports presenter Matt White and reporter Katie Brown will also join the station.
White who is a long-time Channel 10 and Seven presenter will host mornings Monday – Thursday, 9am -12pm while Brown will be heard every morning reporting on sport between 6-9am during breakfast with Vossy.
The pair joins a stellar list of names signed for the station including Sydney’s voice of sport, Andrew Voss who will host breakfast, Bryan Fletcher and Joel Caine for the drive home and Jimmy Smith in the evenings 6-9pm.
Gerard Whateley’s sports radio show will also be heard live on 1170 SEN and DAB+ from 12-1pm Monday – Thursday.
White says, “As a sport lover I’m thrilled that 1170 SEN is coming to Sydney and even more thrilled to be part of the line-up.  Radio is a two way conversation and I can’t wait to bring mornings alive with sport, sport and more sport.”
SEN’s Group Commercial Director – NSW, Simon Dennis welcomed the pair, “Matt is a true professional and one of the most versatile sports presenters in the country – there’s not many sports he hasn’t covered, and audiences love him for his insightful yet approachable style.
“We are thrilled to have Matt and Katie join the team and we can’t wait to kick-off.”
Brown who has made a name for herself first as a reporter and host of Inside NRL, and then as a player, says she is rapt to be part of something new, “I love to take on new challenges and am excited to bring all the breaking footy news to listeners each morning with Vossy on SEN.”
