Billy Brownless quits Footy Show
“It has been a fantastic ride," says Nine AFL presenter after 27 year run.
Nine’s Billy Brownless has quit the AFL Footy Show after 27 years.
Brownless joined The Footy Show in 1994 followed later by the Sunday Footy Show.
“The time has come to hang up the boots and microphone and to have Sundays off,” he told the Sunday Herald Sun.
“I started with the Footy Show with Ed (McGuire), Sam (Newman) and Trev (Marmalade) in the good old days. Once I finished up footy I was lucky enough to get onto the show and ended up doing both the Thursday and Sunday shows.
“It has been a fantastic ride, to be honest.”
Brownless makes his final two appearances on The Footy Show Grand Final Eve: My Room Telethon on Friday and the Sunday Footy Show Grand Final Wrap next weekend.
