Just two days after the Nine 2018 Upfront where it was revealed a new NRL TV panel show would be launched nest year, Wide World of Sport has reported the NRL Footy Show is set for a refresh in 2018.
The format, look and feel and lineup is set to be shaken up as Nine enters a new era of rugby league coverage, having secured digital rights for the NRL from 2018 onwards.
With Nine set to broadcast 23 Thursday night games during the NRL season, the NRL Footy Show will undergo an evolution to follow suit.
Having won 11 Logies in its 24-year run, the show won’t be going anywhere, but viewers can look forward to plenty of changes next year.
“Nine will be broadcasting 23 Thursday night NRL games in 2018 and so the NRL Footy Show will have a new look and feel to reflect the games the audience have just enjoyed watching,” Nine said in a statement.
