Former AFL player Cameron Ling will host a new locally-produced travel series, Melbourne Weekender, for Seven.
Ling will continue his AFL commentary for Seven whilst fronting the new series showcasing Victoria, from secret city laneways to day trips in the Victorian countryside.
“Within an hour’s drive we can travel from a vibrant city to the solitude of the bush,” he said.
“It’s all here on our doorstep and I just love it.”
“Never in a million years did I imagine I’d be a part of a show like this. I’m out of my comfort zone – but I’m passionate about food and travel – which is what the show is all about, so the opportunity to be a part of this is just too good to pass up.”
Earlier this year Seven axed its long-running Victorian travel series Coxy’s Big Break, produced by WTFN.
Melbourne Weekender will join with other Seven-produced lifestyle shows interstate: Sydney Weekender, Queensland Weekender and WA Weekender.
