Nine Network personality and Collingwood Football Club president Eddie McGuire is widely tipped to be joining Foxtel’s AFL coverage next year.
McGuire has been in discussions for three months about a possible shift to FOX Sports for its dedicated AFL channel.
If a deal is made, he could wind up on both Nine and Foxtel, providing he is not on any of Foxtel’s entertainment channels in competition with Nine. Together with his Triple M radio show, that would indeed make him ‘Eddie Everywhere.’
Yesterday 3AW reported that McGuire negotiated a deal with James Packer, part owner of the FOX Sports channels.
Meanwhile, Seven has expressed interest in retired forward Barry Hall for weekly matches featuring Sydney and Greater Western Sydney.
