Gerard Whateley quits ABC’s Offsiders

ABC host leaves after 4 years of fronting Sunday sports show, and longer still with the broadcaster.


Offsiders host Gerard Whateley has quit the ABC to join sports radio broadcaster SEN.

Whateley, who has hosted the Sunday morning show since 2014, has been a commentator for ABC Radio Grandstand.

“After more than 13 years full time employment with the ABC, and considerably longer since that association began, I have decided to close this chapter and pursue a new challenge,” he said.

“It has been an honour and a privilege to be part of Grandstand Sport, Offsiders and the broader ABC.

“It was initially thought I would complete the Ashes series in Sydney and take the opportunity at the conclusion of the Test to say thank you and goodbye.

“Circumstances have changed and that won’t be the case.”

His role with FOX Footy continues.

  1. Sad news for sure. But good luck to him. Still remember his boundary riding as a young bloke with terrible glasses on Ten’s AFL in the early 2000s. Cue for the ABC sport to now be more Sydney-centric than ever. Would be nice to see another Melbourne replacement (if there is one).
