Richardson, after kicking his 800th career goal, partially tore his hamstring of the bone which lead to his retirement at the end of the 2009 season.
Channel Seven Melbourne general manager Lewis Martin commented on the star signing: “We’ve all come to love Richo for his passion, warmth and humour both on and off the field. He’ll bring a great knowledge and insight into the game that we know fans will love.”
Earlier this month Seven announced former Geelong player Tom Harley would join the network’s AFL team.
Both have been panellists on ONE’s One Week at a Time where Richardson still appears on the official website.
