Footy Classified‘s Caroline Wilson has written about her colleague Garry Lyon in a Fairfax article, suggesting an in-depth interview which will take place on Channel Nine before the end of the AFL season.
It isn’t clear if such an interview would be for 60 Minutes, A Current Affair or elsewhere.
Wilson also reinforces suggestions Lyon will not be returning to The Footy Show.
But she says a return to Footy Classified is still a possibility, along with “a highly likely scenario places Lyon in a special commentary role at FOX Footy.”
Lyon, who took time out from presenting to focus on mental health, is contracted to Nine for another year.
“Nine has continued to financially support him but would reportedly allow him to work elsewhere as a football commentator under certain circumstances,” she notes.
Long-time manager Craig Kelly denies suggestions he has opened up talks with the Seven Network, Wilson claims.
