David Morrow amongst nominees for the NRL Hall Of Fame

Five Broadcast Media nominees were announced

Macquarie Media has congratulated David Morrow, the 2GB/4BC Continuous Call Team member and Macquarie Sports Radio mornings host, on his nomination for the National Rugby League (NRL) Hall of Fame.

The NRL has announced a list of nominees for the newly-created Broadcast Media and Print Media categories of their Hall of Fame.

Five Broadcast Media nominees were announced – Frank Hyde, Ray Warren, Rex Mossop, George Lovejoy and Macquarie Media’s David Morrow.

Morrow’s career has spanned almost five decades, including coverage of eight Olympic Games and six Commonwealth Games, as well as cricket, rugby union, soccer, horse racing and general broadcasting.

His passion has always been rugby league – covering the game on radio and television for 30 years, with Macquarie Media since 2015.

MML chief executive Adam Lang said: “We are delighted that David Morrow has been recognised in such a way by the NRL History Committee. David is an extraordinary broadcast talent. His knowledge of all sports – big and small, regional and rural, local and international – is second-to-none. His live sports coverage is exemplary, providing listeners with exciting and accurate descriptions of ball-by-ball action, whatever the sport. He is loved and respected by our listeners and clients, right across Australia. In radio, as in sport, you always want to pick your strongest players – and in our team, David Morrow would always be among the first picked.”

David Morrow said: “When I received a message last night, I dead-set thought it was a gee-up! I have been around the game of rugby league for a while, but never, ever, did I think that I would be nominated for something like this, especially in the company of Ray Warren, Frank Hyde, Rex Mossop and the great George Lovejoy. It is a very humbling experience.”
