Paine said: “It’s terrific to see SEN invest in promoting Tasmanian sporting content, and I couldn’t be more excited to be back on the airwaves.

“I’m looking forward to working alongside Brent, who is undoubtedly one of the best in the business regarding all things sport in Tassie. I can’t wait to analyse and discuss all the latest sporting news, and connect with the dedicated SEN audience.”

In addition to the new breakfast show, sports presenter David Lithgow will join former Australian and Tasmanian state cricketer Brett Geeves to present Sports Entertainment Network’s Saturdays in Tassie program. The program will take a deep dive into Tasmanian sport each week from 8am – 10am.

All programming will be available across SEN’s three Tasmanian-based stations – SEN Tassie 1629am, SENTrack Devonport 1611am, and SENTrack Northen Tasmania 1611am.

Paine presented the SEN breakfast show Jack and Painey from 2021 – 2022 alongside three-time AFL premiership Tiger and fellow Tasmanian Jack Riewoldt.

SEN chief executive Craig Hutchison said of Paine’s appointment at the time: “Tasmania has a proud sporting heritage that deserves its own platform and a louder voice on the national sporting stage.

“So much great sport is taking place in Tasmania – from the return of some great AFL football this season, to the pending arrival of the NBL Tasmania Jackjumpers, the popularity of the BBL Hobert Hurricanes and beyond.

“We are rapt that Tim has joined our journey – he has loved being able to be home while waiting for test cricket’s return and his love of Tasmanian cricket, football and beyond will be invaluable. He is a very talented broadcaster already and we look forward to seeing that grow in the years to come at SEN.

“Jack is already a proven media talent with a big future on the airwaves, and his love of Tassie and all sports is a unique combination.
