Esteemed broadcaster Anthony Hudson will call AFL matches for 3AW in 2023. Widely regarded as one of the finest commentators of the game, Hudson will call all Friday night matches for the upcoming season.
‘Huddo’, as he is affectionately known, will also front a weekly, long-form podcast where he will chat with some of the biggest names of the game.
The move to 3AW marks a homecoming for Hudson who began his media career at the station in 1991 as a reporter, before progressing to football commentator.
Anthony Hudson said: “I was lucky enough to spend some unforgettable days in the 3AW commentary box with some of the legends of footy radio at the start of my career. While a lot has changed, 3AW remains Melbourne’s number one radio station and I can’t wait to be part of the number one footy team again alongside some of the game’s biggest names and great callers.”
Stephen Beers, 3AW Station Manager, said: “It’s great to have Huddo return to 3AW. He is a premium caller of the AFL and will be a great asset to our coverage. It is also exciting to be able to work with him on our digital content in 2023.”
Throughout his 30 year career, Hudson has commentated a range of sports, including AFL, tennis and cricket. He has worked for the Seven Network, Network Ten, Fox Footy, Fox Cricket and Radio SEN.
Hudson has also hosted a number of football-themed panel programs, including After the Game, Before the Game and The Game Plan.
