SEN success at AFMA awards
Sports Entertainment Network (SEN) hosts and programs have enjoyed a winning night at the 2022 Australian Football Media Association Awards.
For the fourth time, SEN Chief Sports Caller Gerard Whateley was named the winner of the Alf Brown Award for the most outstanding media performer for 2022.
“It is a tremendous honour to win this award named after one of the all-time greats of the football media,” Whateley says.
“It’s my privilege to call these games and to curate a daily program that connects right to the heart of the issues and debates that captivate us throughout winter.
“Calling alongside Huddo, Dwayne and Andy on AFL Nation is a joy, and my work is representative of the team at SEN, who strive tirelessly to do justice to the game we all love.”
Whateley’s self-titled radio show won best radio program, while he also took out best radio caller for his work as part of the AFL Nation commentary team.
SEN’s drive show, The Run Home with Andy Maher and Andrew Gaze, was highly commended in the best radio program category. The Sportsday program, heard across Victoria and Tasmania and hosted by Gerard Healy and Sam McClure, was also highly commended in the same category.
Anthony Hudson was once again highly commended for his AFL commentary in the best radio caller category. Both Hudson and Whateley were again voted by their peers as the best commentary duo on radio.
Triple M’s The Friday Huddle won Best Diversity and Inclusion Presentation, the Best Podcast was Credit To The Girls (AFL.com.au) and Leigh Matthews, 3AW, was awarded Best opinion/analysis in the Radio/TV category.
