Gerard Whateley re-signs with SEN
Sports Entertainment Network (SEN) today announced Gerard Whateley will continue to call SEN home after re-signing with the network.
The acclaimed broadcaster and Chief Sports Caller joined SEN in 2018 after 13 years at the ABC, combining reliable journalism and sharp-eyed analysis for his self-titled morning show.
Whateley boasts multiple awards from the Australian Football Media Association for ‘Best Radio Show’ and, most recently, the 2021 winner for the ‘Best Match Caller – Radio’ award.
In addition, the program regularly features inside the top 10 of the Australian Podcast Ranker, with approximately one million downloads per month.
On his re-commitment to SEN, Whateley said the appetite for sports discussion has never been greater.
“The daily conversation about sport and the issues intertwined in the games we play has never been more stimulating or relevant,” said Whateley.
“And the expansion of SEN to a national, and indeed international network, adds to the magnitude and scope of our live sports broadcasts from AFL Nation to Test cricket around the world and the Super Bowl.”
“My view from day one hasn’t altered – this is where I want to be. And almost five years in, it feels like we’re just getting started.”
Sports Entertainment Network Chief Executive, Craig Hutchison, said he was thrilled that Whateley will continue to welcome listeners with ‘Good Morning’ for many years to come.
“We are absolutely delighted that Gerard will continue to help lead the SEN family for years to come,” said Hutchison.
“It is hard to imagine anyone on air anywhere that’s more respected in Australian sports circles.”
“Gerard’s respect for sport, its participants and administrators, and for sports fans of all ages and backgrounds shines through each day. It is matched only by their respect for him in turn.”
“It’s the reason his show ‘Whateley’ is the most downloaded morning radio show in Australia of any type.”
“We are thrilled that he’ll continue to call the biggest moments in AFL, cricket, the Super Bowl and more as our chief commentator and host for years to come.”
Whateley airs Monday through Thursday from 9 am – 12 pm AEST on SEN 1116am (Melbourne), SEN SA 1629am (Adelaide), SEN Tassie 1629am (Hobart), SEN Top End 1611am (Darwin), SEN Kalgoorlie 1611am and streamed via the SEN App.
