SENQ Content Manager Jason Matthews says the number of guests wanting to be involved in the broadcast is testament to Welsh’s standing through the Queensland sporting landscape:

“It was such a great morning, made even better by the outpouring of support from many high profile sporting guests who had no hesitation to be involved. He’s had an outstanding 47 years in the industry, and we are extremely lucky to have him as part of the SENQ family.”
