Australia’s most widely distributed AFL broadcast AFL Live has today announced legendary commentator Robert Walls will join its team for the remainder of the 2015 season.
Walls will return to the special comments chair he dominated for over a decade, after a 14-month stint in France.
Walls will become a permanent fixture in Crocmedia’s AFL Live’s Saturday afternoon call team alongside legendary callers Rex Hunt, Peter Donegan and former Geelong best and fairest winner Liam Pickering for the remainder of the season.
He will also be part of the team for the 2015 finals series.
The AFL Hall of Famer became one of the most-respected commentators in football after ending his coaching career in 1997.
An Alf Brown Award winner, Walls has on several occasions been voted the most outstanding special commentator in football media.
Crocmedia executive director Chris Giannopoulos said it was a huge coup to have Walls join the AFL Live commentary team.
“We’re over the moon to have Robert join our broadcast,” Giannopoulos said.
