AFL boss to get his kicks on TV

The Advertiser - - CONFIDENTIAL -

GILLON

McLach­lan will be tak­ing on a new role to­mor­row night, as co-host of AFL 360.

The Ade­laide-born AFL CEO is join­ing Gerard Whate­ley at the desk of the Fox Footy show in place of Mark Robinson.

“Con­sis­tently Gillon has been our most out­stand­ing guest,” Gerard says.

“(He’s) al­ways ready to give plenty of cheek while dis­cussing the se­ri­ous is­sues in and around the game. The seat suits him so well the pro­gres­sion to co-host seems ob­vi­ous.

“Be­sides, it’s good to give a young fella a chance in TV ev­ery now and then.“

Gillon, pic­tured be­low with wife Laura, will set the footy agenda and in­ter­view reg­u­lar guests, foot­ballers Jor­dan Lewis and Jack Riewoldt.

Maybe he can ask lit­tle brother, and Seven sports re­porter,p , Hamish,, for tips.p
