Adam & Symon to host new FOX Footy show

Former Gogglebox boys Adam Densten & Symon Lovett have joined FOX Footy, hosting a new talk show that reminisces on the glory years, Premierships and Footy Trips.

They were confirmed by FOX Footy at a 2020 season launch at Crown yesterday.

Each week they will sit down with a legend of the game, kicking off with North Melbourne’s Glenn Archer.

“As diehard armchair fans of the game, we can’t wait to dig deep into the myths and rumours we’ve heard at the pub and club, but haven’t been able to confirm or deny. Until now…” Adam and Symon said.

2020 coverage includes every game of every round, plus all finals games leading into the Grand Final, Live in HD and ad-break free during play.

Also announced is Narrow World of Sports (a title that will doubtless bother Nine) with comedians, James ‘The Professor’ Rochford and Andrew ‘Barney’ Barnett joined by a special guest player for a chat and a challenge.

FOX Footy’s  commentary team for 2020 includes Adam Papalia, Alastair Lynch, Andrew Gaze, Anthony Hudson, Ben Dixon, Bernie Vince, Bob Murphy, Brad Johnson, Brenton Speed, Cameron Mooney, David King, Dermott Brereton, Dwayne Russell, Eddie McGuire, Garry Lyon, Gerard Healy, Gerard Whateley, Jason Dunstall, Jon Ralph, Jonathan Brown, Jordan Lewis, Katherine Loughnan, Kelli Underwood, Leigh Montagna, Mark Ricciuto, Mark Robinson, Matthew Pavlich, Mike Sheahan, Nick Dal Santo, Nick Riewoldt, Sarah Jones, Sarah Olle, Sharni Layton, Tom Morris.

Led by Eddie McGuire and Sarah Jones, FOX Footy’s weekend of live action begins before the first siren sounds every round and continues until the locker rooms are empty on a Sunday.

FOX Footy will produce select games for Foxtel throughout the 2020 season in 4K Ultra HD, providing fans with a stadium like viewing experience. These matches will air exclusively Live and ad-break free during play on FOX Sports Ultra HD for eligible sports subscribers.

In 2020 and for the first time ever, every coach will join Gerard Whateley and Mark Robinson and the AFL 360 team on Monday nights. Newly-appointed Melbourne captain Max Gawn, Carlton cult figure Eddie Betts, Richmond star Jack Riewoldt and Collingwood gun Adam Treloar will feature on Players Night on Tuesdays. On Wednesdays, the legends are back, with Shinboner David King and Big Blue Mark ‘Sellars’ Maclure prepare to debate and unpack the biggest stories of the round.

On The Couch on Mondays after AFL 360 returns with a new-look star-studded team lead by Gerard Healy. Healy, Garry Lyon and Jonathan Brown will be joined by former Saint, Nick Riewoldt to dissect the weekend gone and the week ahead.

Mike Sheahan returns for another season of Open Mike on Tuesday evenings. The doyen of footy media will chat to the game’s biggest names before handing over to Bob Murphy in July for his show, Bob. Murphy will join a famous sports fan in their own environment before passing back to Sheahan to close the season.

In 2020, Saturday Stretch after Saturday Footy on FOX will round out the night for footy fans. Hosted by Dermott Brereton, Brad Johnson and Sarah Olle the fun trio will provide the best wrap of the biggest day in footy.

Bounce host Jason Dunstall will aim to keep funsters Andrew Gaze, Cameron Mooney, Sharni Layton and Bernie Vince in check. It will be their return to television since the passing of their great friend Danny ‘Spud’ Frawley.

Televised podcast show, The First Crack, will beat everyone else to the finish line Sunday after Bounce. The revolving panel of three will offer fans their first fix on all games and stories played out in the round that just was.
