Eddie McGuire, Caroline Wilson, Matthew Lloyd and Ross Lyon will front a new mid-week edition of Footy Classified.
As revealed by TV Tonight, the second weekly episode will screen on Wednesday nights, from March 18 at 10pm.
Monday’s Footy Classified returns for its 14th season on Monday, March 16, at 9pm with Craig Hutchison, Caroline Wilson and Matthew Lloyd. Joining them this year will be former Port Adelaide player Kane Cornes, with Chris Judd out.
Journalist Sam McClure will play a role on both editions as resident newsbreaker.
The Sunday Footy Show will be back for its 28th season from 10am Sunday March 22 with host Tony Jones alongside Matthew Lloyd, Nathan Brown, Kane Cornes, Billy Brownless and Damian Barrett. Sam Newman will make special guest appearances throughout the year.
Oval Office also returns in 2020, hosted by Sam Edmund while Free-to-Air’s only dedicated AFLW program, Women’s Footy is also back.
Nine’s AFL Executive Producer, Matt Conway, said: “Footy on Nine will make its mark in 2020. Nine’s award-winning team of commentators and journalists will come together across television, newspapers, radio and online to provide unique insight. The digital space provides an exciting new ground for us to share stories about the game we love.”
There are also three digital programs available on 9Now and YouTube:
Full Time with Crawf, presented by AFL legend Shane Crawford and Nine News reporter Ayrton Woolley, will drop across digital channels at 8.30pm each Sunday, starting March 22. With a recap of the day’s footy action, Full Time with Crawf will also tackle the headlines and key talking points from the week, taking a look at post-match media conferences and bringing viewers up to date with the latest on injuries, reports and suspensions.
Our second new digital program is Talk of the Town, on Wednesday afternoons, starting March 18. Each week, Sam McClure, Warren Tredrea and Seb Costello will dissect the key issues in footy’s heartland. We’ll have agenda-setters across the country and Talk of the Town will be their platform to zero in on the big news in their respective markets that may not be making headlines elsewhere.
Rounding out Nine’s new digital lineup is the third program, Home Ground. Hosted by Shane Crawford, Home Ground will document the life of AFL players away from the game. It will feature retired players in their natural environment as they recount fond memories of their careers, and provide an insight into the private lives of current players as we explore their hobbies, pets, partners and favourite haunts.
