Eddie McGuire’s return to Nine’s Footy Show has triggered a reaction at Seven because his production company JAM TV also produces Monday night panel show Talking Footy.
News Corp reports Seven execs are uncomfortable with the arrangement and are looking at replacing JAM TV with another production company or producing it in-house. Changes may impact the talent Wayne Carey, Luke Darcy, Tim Watson and Sam McClure.
“A final decision won’t be made until after the Australian Open and the Winter Olympics,” a Seven insider said.
Meanwhile there are also reports Shane Crawford may leave the Footy Show following a “diminished role” while Trevor Marmalade is speculated to return. Elsewhere Garry Lyon has departed Footy Classified while Gerard Whateley has quit ABC.
