Kent was stood down from his media roles last year

As the NRL prepares to launch its 2024 season in Las Vegas, Paul Kent is set to return to his roles as NRL360 co-host and News Corp columnist.

Kent has been a presenter on NRL 360 since the show first launched in 2013. He will return to the show alongside Braith Anasta, with his fill-in Gorden Tallis staying on the show on Monday nights.

Kent was stood down from his media roles last year after being arrested on charges of assault and choking a person without consent against his ex-partner.

In December, Seven months on from his arrest, a Sydney court found Kent not guilty of the allegations.

At the time, Magistrate Daniel Rees found that the charges could not be proven beyond a reasonable doubt, concluding that Kent “was acting in reasonable self-defence of his property” after having his phone taken. The decision came after a two-day hearing in Sydney’s Downing Centre Local Court.

Speaking to reporters outside court, Kent said “I’ve been vindicated today. The judge accepted what happened.”

He called the ordeal “a big setback” that had “caused significant reputational damage”.

After Kent’s arrest, Foxtel reportedly removed the back catalogue of NRL 360. Posts emerged on social media of an error screen reading “This content is not available anymore” when users went to search NRL 360 on Foxtel. Clips of the show’s content remained available on Fox League’s YouTube channel.
