SBS has axed the Marngrook Footy Show for 2020.
The longest running free to air footy show left standing on Aussie TV was on Tuesday cancelled by the network after 12 years on SBS and NITV.
The weekly footy panel show, which starred former AFL star Gilbert McAdam, was one of the highest profile shows on the NITV channel and the most popular sports show on the indigenous Australian produced station.
However, SBS has now confirmed the show will not be returning when the 2020 AFL season begins in March.
Marngrook Footy Show founder and producer Grant Hansen confirmed the show’s death sentence on Wednesday.
“It’s true that NITV – SBS has decided after 10 successful years and there (sic) most popular show not to continue with the Marngrook Footy Show,” Hansen wroteon Facebook.
“We are hopeful of continuing on another network. We thank all our fans and supporters for your support to the program over 12 years.”
