While Nine is yet to confirm its new line-up, The Sunday Herald Sun yesterday reported Anthony “Lehmo” Lehmann, Brendan Fevola, Dylan Alcott and an as-yet-unknown female sporting identity will front a new-look Footy Show.
A fifth panel member is expected to rotate each week.
Hawks tragic “Lehmo” is a former panelist from Before the Game, who recently co-hosted the Invictus Games with Dylan Alcott. Eddie McGuire’s Jam TV, which produced the Invictus Games for ABC, will resume as Footy Show producer.
The Footy Show name is also expected to remain, despite talk of other titles.
Last year Eddie McGuire indicated there were plans for he and Sam Newman to appear on select Footy Show specials, including a Grand Final edition.
Last week there were also rumours of a new AFL show from Crocmedia tipped to be hosted by Sam McClure.
Expect confirmation soon. AFL’s Premiership season kicks off on Thursday March 21st.
