Max and Ellie co-host new show for kids on SEN
Sports Entertainment Network is giving aspiring media presenter Max Becker the opportunity of a lifetime, with the 15-year-old to co-host ‘The Kid’s Edition’ show alongside AFLW star Ellie Blackburn.
The show will air every Sunday beginning May 1 from 8am – 9am on 1116 SEN, with kids encouraged to call in and chat all things sports, particularly footy.
Previously hosted by Daisy Pearce, the show will cover a wide variety of topics – from kids talking about their own Auskick experiences to discussions on the performance of their favourite team.
Max’s opportunity with 1116 SEN started when Sports Entertainment Network Chief Executive Craig Hutchison accepted an invitation to appear on Max’s podcast, ‘The Sporting Max’.
Eventually, the show started airing on 1116 SEN each Sunday morning.
Max says he can’t wait to get started and talk sport with a younger audience:
“I first emailed Craig and thought he would be too busy to reply. I couldn’t believe it when I checked my emails and saw his response. He appeared on the 50th episode of my podcast, which had my largest audience and we kept in touch.”
Ellie says she’s excited about her first hosting opportunity and working alongside Max.
“You can already tell that Max is so knowledgeable and passionate about sport. I can’t wait to pick his brain during the show and connect with our young listeners.”
SEN National Radio Director Sam Thompson says it’s the perfect fit:
“We believe this show will really appeal to kids who want to talk about their own footy experiences at a grass roots level while also chatting about elite sport.”
