Floundering ratings and a current host on the outer might see the Collingwood Chairman back in the hot seat.
#15MinutesofFame has been told The Footy Show will take on a very new look in season 2017 with the Collingwood boss to resume hosting duties. At least that’s what we’re being told.
Whilst a shock move initially, James Brayshaw’s tenure with the Network IS on shaky ground, providing the perfect pathway for the old host to slide in.
Brayshaw was removed from the channel’s cricket team and he is demanding a hefty new contract & claiming he was the glue that held The Footy Show together in the absence of Garry Lyon and the scandal that tore apart the show.
Reports Sunday suggest a role for the ex North Melbourne President with Foxtel’s Fox Footy channel commentating.
Rumours of a role at 7 have been quashed, whilst negotiations with the Nine Network appear at an impasse.
So will 9 be able to rejuvenate The Footy Show as it embarks on its 23 rd year?
Sam Newman and Rebecca Maddern hope so ….
