Rex Hunt leaves 3AW
Long-serving commentator Rex Hunt is leaving Melbourne’s 3AW.
In a note sent to staff, seen by Radio Today, station manager Stephen Beers said the sad news came as Hunt looks to focus on his family.
“As much as he has loved his return to 3AW and we have loved having him on Footy Nightline, we wish him well for the future,” Beers said.
“Rex knows the door is always open for him.”
Hunt returned to 3AW for the bushfire relief State of Origin last year. Prior to that, he’d been a commentator for over two decades at the station.
Back in the 1960s and 1970s, he played over 200 VFL matches for clubs including Geelong, Richmond and St Kilda.
