Former Geelong player Josh Jenkins will join as a new regular on The Run Home with Andy & Gazey every Friday, from 3pm-6pm. Jenkins will join Maher behind the microphone, looking at not just AFL games and insights but the broader news cycle from across the week.

Daisy Pearce will also return to the Sports Entertainment Network, taking up her position on AFL Nation as well as being a regular on Whateley. So too will Geelong star Patrick Dangerfield, re-joining Whateley and continuing his own fishing and boating show Reel Adventures each Saturday morning.

SEN’S Group Radio Director Sam Thompson is thrilled by the level of recruits, and says, “The AFL Nation broadcast team on SEN is a stellar line-up of new and returning talent who all have diverse experiences in AFL, whether a player, coach, or expert journalist. It will make for appointment-listening right across the season”.
