“I’m sad because it’s the end of a run for a great show,” he said on Triple M’s Hot Breakfast show.
“It’s gone for 26 years, when we first started the show we were told we had six weeks to make it rate and here we are 26 years later."
The network then released the following comment.
“It is with regret that The Footy Show will no longer be produced,” Nine’s Melbourne managing director Matt Scriven said.
“It has been a tough decision to end the program that has been such a trailblazer, but sadly the new show has not captured audiences in the way we had hoped.
“I want to thank the current hosts, Anthony Lehmann, Neroli Meadows, Dylan Alcott, Brendan Fevola and Shane Crawford, the former hosts of The Footy Show, and the hard working crew for their great contribution.”
