Ewan Giles replaces Lee Simon as Triple M content director of AFL

Former Assistant Editor

Triple M has a new AFL content director following the recent retirement of the great Lee Simon.

Ewan Giles, who moves from the role of Triple M Melbourne operations director, will replace Simon who ran the network’s footy broadcast for 22 years.

There couldn’t be bigger shoes to fill, but Ewan has been working alongside Lee for the past five years.

He has called multiple games per season and has also been producing both our AFL and Cricket Broadcasts.

Ewan will take up his new role at the end of the month.

Congratulations to Ewan Giles.
What about Vinnie Shannon? I thought he would have been an excellent choice.

Oh, they asked Vinnoes, but too much external pressure – sources close to the Shannon clan have reported he is too busy with cleaning his pool cabana area for summer, stage managing his wife’s Instagram channel and there’s also his still under wraps DJ team for a new chain of RollerSkating rinks around the the country. He’s very busy – just don’t try and touch him

@Chick Mary Land.
This is very exciting regarding the intel that Mr Shannon will be heading up a new chain of Roller Skating rinks.

Vinnie actually would’ve been a great choice. I knew him back in the day.
He could’ve even filled in if talent were ever sick.
He once rated 61’s in Bendigo did you know? #RadioRoyalty

Poor Vin. I’ve heard his name was taken off the list after a Triple M footy panelling disaster a few years back.
