Front Bar host Mick Molloy would love to have Sam Newman as a guest if The Footy Show does not return.
“If that show wasn’t to go ahead that would be a massive blow for Melbourne TV — a sea change,” he told the Herald Sun.
“I really like those guys and I like Sam and what he said was quite moving.
“But you know what in a selfish way I thought ‘if that doesn’t happen he would be a bloody good guest for The Front Bar’.
“Whatever happens, I wish them all the luck.”
Molloy is also considering a cricket version of The Front Bar with Andy Maher and Sam Pang over summer. The team previously fronted Winter Olympics and Commonwealth Games editions for Seven.
