White, who is currently co-hosting The Project, will join Steve Hooker and Leisel Jones, on TEN’s morning edition of Glasgow Live.

“I am extremely excited to be starting work at TEN this week and to be heading over to Glasgow for the XX Commonwealth Games later this month is the icing on the cake,” he said.

“To be hosting alongside two of Australia’s greatest Olympians in Steve Hooker and Leisel Jones is an honour in itself, not to mention working with Ian Thorpe and the entire team of hosts and expert commentators.

“Australia has countless gold medal chances in Glasgow including household names such as Sally Pearson, Anna Meares and James Magnussen up against some of the world’s best athletes.”

TEN Head of Sport, David Barham, said: “TEN Sport is delighted to have Matt back as part of our team. He is one of the best sports broadcasters in this country and will be a great addition to all of our sporting properties.”

White will also join TEN’s V8 Supercars team and has been tipped for another unnamed project.

    I’m sure Matt is a nice guy but not sure what the appeal is with him, never found him particularly interesting but then again I have never watched the V8s.

    Good News. However i think the regular gig for him would be better spent if TEN brought back Sports Tonight. Although he will be on the Project and the News post Glasgow and when SuperCars season is not on.

    With only 13 days to go, I am amazed at the lack of promotion Ten is doing for the Commonwealth Games.

    Very low key.

    What are they offering? What Games shows are on? What is on One and Ten and when? Who is are the Ten Team?

    Maybe they learnt after India, and are saving the bucks!
