Finey flags possible SEN return
Popular sports broadcaster Mark Fine has revealed he is again in talks about a possible return to the airwaves on SEN.
Social media was flooded with calls to reinstate Fine, after he made a special appearance on SEN 1116’s Breakfast show as part of the Melbourne station’s recent 20th birthday celebrations.
For ten years, Fine hosted the popular Evenings with Mark Fine program on SEN.
He lost his job in the station’s revamp, when Craig Hutchison took over as CEO at the beginning of 2018.
Speaking on the latest edition of the Ruck ’n Roll podcast, Fine said he’s been asked back again.
“Last year I was sort of a deer in the headlights, and I know I said publicly it wasn’t (about) the money.”
Fine says this time, he’s laid down his demands, stressing that it’s not so much about the cash – it’s more about exposure for his business (Fine and his wife run Lenny’s Fine Foods, a popular deli in Melbourne).
“If they come to the party, I’ll be doing Friday night after the footy,” Fine said, adding that the ball is now in SEN’s court.
When contacted by Radio Today for comment, an SEN spokesperson said “We don’t have any official comment at this stage; however, we may have an update that we can share with you in the coming days.”
