Australia has three major over-the-air TV networks, one of which, inscrutably, is called the Nine Network. It draws higher ratings than both the Seven Network and Network 10. I have no idea how much of this is due to sportscaster Rebecca Maddern, who just turned forty-two, but I’m pretty sure she’s not hurting the network.
She got her first reporting job, though, on Seven, in 2002, and stayed there for fourteen years, moving to Nine in 2016 to host the AFL Footy Show, which probably needs no explanation if you’re at all familiar with Australian Rules Football. She stayed there for two years, moving to do a variety of sports-related programs on Nine.
You might expect that the Footy Show occasionally undertook the discussion of topics that weren’t Australian Rules Football, and you would of course be correct:
Fran Tarkenton never said anything like that, I’m sure.
