Tyrone Thwaites departs Hit92.9 Perth for full-time Basketball role
Thwaites has coached elite Western Australian junior basketball for some time now, and will bring his experience in TV, radio and media to the basketball club.
“I’ve got a pretty large background in basketball,” Thwaites tells Radio Today, “and basically an opportunity to strong to turn down.
“Plus it’s at my home club too.”
Thwaites also revealed that despite the new role he isn’t departing radio entirely.
“I’ll stay on as a casual at hit, still do a heap of sports MC work around Perth, and leave there knowing it gave me an amazing place to work for 5 years.”
Thwaites began playing junior basketball for the Cockburn Cougars in 2005 and has played 73 State Basketball league games for the Rockingham Flames.
“It’s an exciting time to be a member of the Cougar family, our aim has always been to be WA’s family club, and we will continue to work to that goal,” he said.
“I’m looking forward to leading Cockburn into an era that breeds a culture of sustainability, success and family.”
