Former North Melbourne Player Carey Is Front-Runner For Fox Footy, Seven Roles
Former Australian Football League club North Melbourne player Wayne Carey "has emerged as favourite to claim two high-profile broadcasting roles next season," according to Pierik & Bartley of THE AGE. Carey "has been locked in serious negotiations" with host TV networks Channel Seven and Fox Footy. This "would involve Carey providing special comments on Seven's Friday night coverage," where he could replace former Geelong premiership captain Tom Harley, while he would also replace Paul Roos on Fox Footy's iconic Monday night review show, "On the Couch." If Carey is successful, "it would complete a major comeback for the dual premiership skipper." Carey had been dumped by the Nine Network in '08, where he was part of Monday night's Footy Classified, "because of his off-field issues" (THE AGE, 1/8).
