David is not just a work colleague, but a dear friend to everyone at this station and this network”, said Hadley. 

He’s a man of some substance. It goes without saying he’s Australia’s most versatile broadcaster.”

Luke Davis, 2GB Head of Content, said: “For more than five decades, David Morrow’s voice has been the soundtrack of some of the greatest sporting moments Australia and the world has seen. His knowledge and passion for sport has burst through Australian radios each and every weekend – a familiar and iconic sound.”

We have had the honour of having David as part of the Continuous Call Team and Nine Radio family for the past nine years and he’s proven to be immensely popular and much-loved by staff and listeners alike. 

“’Thirsty’ has called countless epic individual performances and sporting battles in his time. He now faces his own battle, but does so with the backing of many mates in his corner.”

Morrow’s media career has spanned 52 years, covering every sport under the sun. He started out at the ABC calling cricket and rugby league, and has been a valued member of the 2GB team since 2015, covering nine NRL seasons.
