Triple M appoints EP for NRL and Cricket
SCA has appointed Brad McNamara as EP of its NRL and Cricket coverage at Triple M Sydney.
Brad, who was the executive producer of Triple M’s first foray into Test Cricket this summer, is an ex-NSW Blues player and a former EP of Channel Nine’s cricket coverage.
This newly created role will see Brad take charge of Triple M’s exclusive FM NRL and Cricket broadcasts.
Triple M’s head of content Mike Fitzpatrick said, “Brad did such a fantastic job as EP of our first ever Test Match Cricket coverage over the summer, that it was a no brainer to get him on board full-time as EP of NRL & Cricket.”
In 2017, Triple M’s NRL coverage will feature the brand new 6pm Friday night game live, along with Thursday nights, Saturday afternoons and Sunday (match of the round) fixtures.
In a two-year deal with Cricket Australia, Triple M will broadcast the 2017/2018 Ashes Series and will continue to add to its “star-studded cricket commentary team”, according to the network.
