Daisy Pearce joins Triple M’s AFL footy call
Daisy Pearce, a Six-time Helen Lambert medallist and superstar of the AFLW, has joined Triple M’s AFL commentary team.
Pearce called her first game on Saturday – Carlton v’s Gold Coast Suns – and returns on Sunday to call the Hawthorn v West Coast game from the MCG.
Growing up in country Victoria, Pearce was the only girl playing footy in her town in a football-mad family and was drawn to the sense of community and comradery the game and club gave her.
Pearce was part of the commentary team for Channel Seven’s inaugural broadcast of the AFLW and impressed with her razor sharp insights in to the game, reminding footy fans why she is so highly regarded on and off the field.
Triple M’s head of content Mike Fitzpatrick says “It’s fantastic to have a player of Daisy’s calibre join Triple M Football”

Pearce added “I’m loving the opportunity to work alongside a well-established footy call team and be part of a station I grew up listening to. I will share my passion for the game and hopefully bring a different perspective to the mix. The Triple M broadcast always provides a good laugh as well as an insightful call and I’m excited to be part of it!”
Pearce joins a refreshed line up of legends recently out of the game, Chris Judd, Paul Roos and Simon Black alongside Triple M stalwarts including James Brayshaw, Luke Darcy, Wayne Carey, Brian Taylor and Dennis Cometti.
Triple M will Rock Footy across all 5 metro capital cities and 34 regional territories this year with Southern Cross Austereo’s regional rebrand complete, delivering the most entertaining and informative call in the game.
