On the first episode of the Sounding Board podcast for 2017, Pacific Star MD-elect Craig Hutchison said there would be some big names signing with the station who would appear on Gerard Whateley‘s new morning show.
The first of those big names dropped this morning.
AFLW star Daisy Pearce headlines a list of sporting talent that also includes rising media star Kane Cornes, five-time premiership star Dermott Brereton, expert analyst David King, 300-game champions Nick Dal Santo and Robert Murphy, three-time premiership player Terry Wallace and Brownlow medallist Adam Cooney.
During 2017 Pearce became Triple M Melbourne’s first female footy caller.
Pearce will play a pivotal role with the station. She’ll appear on Gerard Whateley’s new show Whateley, breakfast with Garry Lyon and Tim Watson and develop her own signature women’s sport show. Pearce will also provide expert analysis on 1116 SEN footy and AFL Nation around the country.
Craig Hutchison said in a release accompanying the news:
“We are thrilled with the calibre and integrity of the talent we’ve assembled that will drive 1116 SEN into its new era.
“We’ve secured sport’s biggest names and influencers and we aren’t done yet with further announcements still to come regarding Gerard’s show, which launches on Monday.
“There will be more diversity, opinion, and something for all sports fans in the new 1116 SEN world.
“We’ll call more live sport, take you places you’ve always dreamed of going, and connect you with your heroes all over the world.
“1116 SEN in 2018 means business, and we’ve got the ensemble cast in place to start an amazing ride.”
