Mick Malthouse lands at ABC following SEN axing
Mick Malthouse is the latest former 1116 SEN employee to find a new job, with the former Collingwood and Carlton coach and SEN caller securing a new position with the ABC.
Craig Hutchinson‘s clear-out at SEN earlier this year saw Malthouse axed. He had joined the network in 2016 after finishing up with Carlton.
News Corp reports that Malthouse is set to work on select AFL games for the ABC, mainly on Thursday nights.
His hiring is part of a reshuffle at the national broadcaster which also saw the departure of Gerard Wheatley, who had called Friday night and Saturday games for more than a decade.
Alistair Nicholson will now call Friday and Saturday games, with Kelli Underwood co-calling on Fridays and Matt Clinch doing the same on Saturdays.
Mark Maclure, Brad Sewell, David Parkin, Adam Ramanauskas, Nathan Burke and Stan Alves are all set to return to ABC for the 2018 season.
During Hutchinson’s recent overhaul of SEN’s staff, Mark Robinson, Brett Thomas, Matt Granland, Mark Fine, Kevin Hillier, Tony Schibeci and general manager Cathy Thomas were among those dismissed.
