Will the next Ray Hadley please stand up!
Nova 96.9’s Matt de Groot made his debut as part of the Wide World of Sports commentary team over the weekend, for Channel 9’s rugby league coverage.
The Fitzy & Wippa newsreader will call a game each Sunday during the Canterbury Cup NSW, saying it’s “an incredible opportunity” to learn from the best in the industry.
In addition to his new gig at Nine, de Groot also co-hosts Nova’s Saturday morning breakfast show, Matt, Sarah and Matty J, and the recently launched early breakfast show with Sarah McGilvray from 5-6am weekdays.
He is a sports media graduate, experienced sports journalist and game-day MC for the Wallabies, Waratahs, Sydney Swans, Sydney Sixers, Western Sydney Wanderers and Cronulla Sharks.
With wife Bronte Coy, de Groot announced their first baby last week, with the couple expecting a baby boy in September.
