Victorian AFL panel show Off The Bench is moving from Prime7 to Southern Cross (Victoria).
Hosted by Wayne Schwass and Liam Pickering the 13-week series will screen on Thursday nights after the AFL Footy Show.
Executive Director of Crocmedia, Chris Giannopoulos, said “Over the past four years, Off The Bench has gained a loyal following in regional Victoria. We’re expecting strong audience growth this year coming off the AFL Footy Show from our regional viewers who love to catch up on the latest in local Victorian AFL action.”
Southern Cross Austereo Head of Regional Media Rick Lenarcic commented, “Being the Channel 9 affiliate we’re excited about taking another sports orientated program, especially with the love of AFL in regional Victoria. It’s the perfect fit to follow The Footy Show and the focus on local footy ties in with our own localised brands across our multimedia assets”.
Crocmedia also produces sport entertainment shows including Future Stars, Footy SA, Footy WA and Women’s Footy which aired earlier this year during the inaugural AFL Women’s competition.
It returns on June 29.
