Dave Hughes joins AFL Footy Show
Hughesy signs to Nine show, a year after TEN ended Before the Game.
He becomes the first comedian presenter on the show since Trevor Marmalade departed in 2008.
“I’ve watched the show since it started, I love the guys on it, it’s going to be fun and a very interesting year,’’ Hughes told News Corp.
The former Project co-host is set for a busy year, also returning to a regular radio role with KIIS FM (formerly MIX FM).
Nine Melbourne head of programming and production Tim Cleary said Hughes would do both stand-up and comedy with AFL players.
“He’s the funniest man around and a great fit for the show.”
