Early this month it was plugged as Footy Confidential with Caroline Wilson, Wayne Carey Garry Lyon and Craig Hutchison.
But then Foxtel went and announced Confidential TV, a TV gossip version of the syndicated News Ltd. newspaper column.
Suddenly Nine, which has a cushy Foxtel deal co-sponsoring The Footy Show, has brought a new name off the bench.
The show to premiere on Monday April 2 at 10:35 promises:
Football is set for a shake-up when the games biggest names and agenda-setters lock horns on Footy Classified for a provocative look at the AFL. One of the game’s greatest players, Wayne Carey, joins football writer Caroline Wilson, commentator Garry Lyon and Nine’s new AFL editor, Craig Hutchison to tackle the sport’s burning issues.
NB: Unlikely to air in “non-AFL states.”
