Marngrook Footy Show this month celebrates 10 years with a special episode on Thursday June 22 at 7:30pm on NITV (Channel 34 and Foxtel 144).
The Marngrook Footy Show has come a long way since it first aired 10 years ago on NITV, and to mark this momentous occasion hosts Grant Hansen, Gilbert McAdam, Leila Gurruwiwi and Shelley Ware (pictured) will be joined by past panellists and guests in a special episode that celebrates the show’s history and success.
Original Marngrook panellists Derek Kickett and Ronnie Burns, will join Grant and Gilly on the desk, and the show’s first ever guest Nathan Lovett-Murray will return.
Marngrook throughout its 10-year history has continually delivered on its mission to recognise the contribution indigenous players make to the AFL. Highlights have included outdoor broadcasts in Alice Springs and Sydney, Grand Final shows at Federation Square, Etihad Stadium and The Forum Theatre, insightful interviews with Buddy Franklin, Adam Goodes and Eddie Betts, plus thought-provoking commentary on issues that face the game.
Host of the Marngrook Footy Show Grant Hansen said: “I started the Marngrook Footy Show in 2007 because I wanted to create a platform to champion indigenous achievement in the AFL. Over the past 10 years we have created a truly unique football show that embraces diversity and celebrates the success of indigenous footballers and the contribution they make to footy.
“I’ve been honoured to share the desk with so many legends of the game past and present. We have a lot of fun making this show every week and I’m thankful to everyone who makes it so special.”
