Jason Dunstall and Nick Riewoldt return to Triple M Footy lineup

Staff Writer

Triple M Footy has lured Jason ‘The Chief’ Dunstall back to the microphone after a radio sabbatical.

The ex Hawthorn player will join Luke Darcy, Mark Howard, Nathan Brown and Damian Barrett for Triple M’s Friday Huddle. 

He earned the nickname ‘The Chief’ when he held the position of interim CEO at Hawthorn Football Club in 2004.

Triple M Footy’s head of sports content, Ewan Giles, said: “Jason is known for his sharp wit, acid tongue and intolerance for flogs. He’s the perfect fit for Triple M Footy.”

Also rejoining the Triple M ranks is Nick ‘Rooey’ Riewoldt, formerly of St Kilda.

He’s previously appeared on The Gospel and various Triple M Footy programs. In 2019, however, he moved to SEN. He will now provide special commentary on select matches, as well as co-hosting The Rush Hour with Billy Brownless while James Brayshaw is on leave.

Giles added of Riewoldt: “Nick’s cutting analysis and sharp mind will add plenty to Triple M Footy. Shame his broad shoulders and good looks will be wasted on the radio.”

Triple M Footy’s Nathan Brown, who has worked with both men on air, noted the duo’s talents.

“The Chief is an intimidating force in the commentary box. I’m sure he’s put the fried rice incident behind him and we’re confident that he can keep Mark Howard’s ego in check. Is there anything that Rooey can’t do? The greatest CHF of the modern era.”

Given that Dale ‘Louie’ Lewis also has a sharp quick wit, acid tongue and ripping sense of humour, Are we expecting Triple M to loure him back also??? Talent pool seems a bit slim…
