Mick Malthouse joins SEN

1116 SEN, Melbourne’s Home of Footy, has added games record-holding coach Mick Malthouse  to their AFL commentary team in 2016.

Malthouse’s AFL credentials speak for themselves – 174 games as a player at St Kilda and Richmond, including the Tigers’ 1980 premiership, followed by a record 718-game, 31-year career as senior coach at four clubs – Footscray, West Coast, Collingwood and Carlton.

Over the years, he enjoyed premiership success three times as coach including at the Eagles in 1992 and 1994, and Collingwood’s drought breaking win in 2010.

The SEN audience will have access to Mick’s extensive knowledge of the game on Friday nights, headlining The Coaches Box from 6pm, where he will interact with the current coaches of the AFL.

He will then join the Friday night commentary team alongside Anthony Hudson, Matt Granland, Cameron Mooney and Rohan Connolly.

“I’m really looking forward to joining the team,” said Malthouse.

“I have worked with SEN before and I’m excited to be re-joining the team. I love the fact the station is dedicated to sport. I love footy, but I’m a lover of all sport.”

Malthouse takes the place of Dermott Brereton, however Dermott will continue to be a key part of the multiple award-winning Crunch Time on a Saturday morning and feature on The Run Home on a Monday afternoon with Daniel Harford and Mark Allen.

SEN’s 2016 AFL coverage begins tonight with the first match of the NAB Challenge between Hawthorn and Carlton at Aurora Stadium live from 7pm AEDT.
