Nick Riewoldt will officially join the Triple M AFL team from round five this weekend and will make regular appearances on Triple M Melbourne’s The Rush Hour, The Hot Breakfast and Dead Set Legends, plus Triple M Adelaide.
“I’ve been a fan of Triple M and appeared on many of its shows since my early playing days, so it’s great to officially break my way into the Triple M lineup this year,” Riewoldt said.
“I’m looking forward to sharing my experiences, insight and passion for the game with the loyal listeners, while enjoying a laugh.”
Riewoldt’s former teammate, Leigh “Joey” Montagna, has also become a full-time member of the award-winning Triple M commentary team and also hosts Dead Set Legends alongside Jay “Jay-Z” Clark on Saturday mornings.
Other new arrivals on weekend AFL coverage this year include Billy Brownless, Barry Hall and AFLW player Kate McCarthy.
Triple M’s head of content Mike Fitzpatrick said, “With AFL reaching more people and becoming more popular each season, it’s important that Triple M continues to invest in top-shelf talent to bring the insight and entertainment that our brand is famous for. Nick is about as good as it gets.”
