Sports Entertainment Network (SEN) has secured the services of one of the most respected sports commentators throughout the industry, with Gerard Healy and Sportsday joining the SEN airwaves. Adding more intrigue to the new Sportsday lineup, Kane Cornes will co-host the program alongside Healy.
From November 1, Sportsday will appear as a two-hour program on SEN 1116am at the new time slot of 5.30pm, addressing all the daily sports news. Additionally, various stations throughout regional Victoria including the ACE Radio Network, KLFM and Voice FM will simulcast the program.
Admitting the decision was a big one, Healy says the opportunity to continue working alongside some of the footy industry’s best was a big factor.
“It was a big decision, it’s been sitting there for a couple of months now,” Healy told SEN’s Whateley.
“Ultimately, I reached the decision to come across to SEN because it gave me an opportunity to continue as a team.
“Before I made the decision, I came to the realisation that even if I was offered the job at 3AW who had made the decision to go to a single-handed (format) – I didn’t think I was good enough to run a single-handed program for a couple of hours at night.
“Those couple of factors pushed me towards staying where I am and whilst the program is moving, I’m not.”
Healy said he’s looking forward to further connecting with the SEN audience, especially the ACE Radio Network around country Victoria.
