Triple M have announced a colossal lineup for the 2017 AFL Grand Final broadcast, while one of FIVEaa’s very own could potentially play a part in the footy action on the day and Nova 100 makes big breakfast plans.
Triple M’s coverage kicks off tomorrow (affectionately known as Grand Final Eve Eve), with The Hot Breakfast hosting their annual party, including The Living End performing live.
Friday will see Triple M club winners enjoy a live and intimate set from The Killers at a secret location, as a warm to the big dance.
The all-day Grand Final broadcast team includes Chris Judd, Mark Ricciuto, Luke Darcy, James Brayshaw, Brian Taylor, Wayne Carey, Mick Molloy, Nathan Brown and Damian Barrett.
Meanwhile, former Adelaide Crows captain and FIVEaa’s afternoons co-host Mark “Bicks” Bickley has been tapped for a the huge job of presenting the club with their premiership cup should the South Australian side win.
Bicks is Adelaide’s only premiership skipper, and said it would be a great honour to be involved if the Crows are successful on Saturday.
“I consider it a privilege to be part of such a great club and am proud of everyone who has worked there past and present,” he added.
Nova 100’s Chrissie, Sam & Browny are also getting amongst the action, hosting their annual Grand Final Breakfast at the Carlton Brewhouse in Abbotsford.
Special guests will include friends of the show Melbourne Football Club’s Bernie Vince, Titus O’Reily and commentator Danny “Spud” Frawley as well as Bruce McAvaney and comedian/Bulldog’s banner writer Danny McGinlay.
