Sports Entertainment Network (SEN) is proud to announce Gerard Whateley will continue to call SEN home, with the acclaimed broadcaster and Chief Sports Caller re-signing with the network.
Whateley joined SEN in 2018, combining authoritative journalism and sharp-eyed analysis with emotive broadcasting, his self-titled morning show sets the sporting agenda for the day ahead.
Whateley and his program have enjoyed a string of accolades, including multiple awards from the Australian Football Media Association for ‘Best Radio Show’ and, most recently, the 2021 winner for the ‘Best Match Caller – Radio’ award.
In addition, the program regularly features within the top 10 of the Australian Podcast Ranker, with approximately one million downloads per month.
Whateley’s broadcasting prowess extends past AFL football, with the Quill Award winner having broadcasted a range of major sporting events across the SEN airwaves, including the Super Bowl, Olympic Games, International Test Cricket, and the Melbourne Cup.
On his re-commitment to SEN, Whateley said the appetite for sport discussion has never been greater.
“The daily conversation about sport and the issues intertwined in the games we play has never been more stimulating or relevant.
“And the expansion of SEN to a national, and indeed international network, adds to the magnitude and scope of our live sports broadcasts from AFL Nation to Test cricket around the world and the Super Bowl.
“My view from day one hasn’t altered – this is where I want to be. And almost five years in it feels like we’re just getting started.”
Sports Entertainment Network Chief Executive, Craig Hutchison, said he was thrilled that Whateley will continue to welcome listeners with “Good Morning” for many years to come.
“We are absolutely delighted that Gerard will continue to help lead the SEN family for years to come.
“It is hard to imagine anyone on air anywhere that’s more respected in Australian sports circles.
“Gerard’s respect for sport, its participants and administrators, and for sports fans of all ages and backgrounds shines through each day. It is matched only by their respect for him in turn.
“It’s the reason his show “Whateley” is the most downloaded morning radio show in Australia of any type.
“We are thrilled that he’ll continue to call the biggest moments in AFL, cricket, the Super Bowl and more as our chief commentator and host for years to come.”
