Nine Confirm That The Footy Show Is No More Channel Nine

Channel Nine has announced that The NRL Footy Show will not be returning next year.

Shortly after rumours began circulating that the long-running show had been axed, Nine's Director of Sport Tom Malone released a statement confirming the news.

"It's been an incredible ride for The Footy Show," he said. "A quarter of a century of laughs, controversy and first-class footy analysis.

"Fatty holds the record for the longest-serving host of any prime time Australian TV show - a tribute to both his understanding of the game, his authenticity and not to mention his incredible comedic timing.

"In recent years , Erin has equally brought a new energy, perspective and showed her passion for the game."

While Fatty will continue his work in the commentary box, Nine also announced that Molan will be joining the Wide World of Sports team, which will include two new post-match shows on Thursday and Friday nights.
