Adelaide will be the only club in the AFL to produce its own dedicated free-to-air television and radio programmes, with the Crows Show extending to 104.7 Triple M during the 2022 home and away season.
The hour-long weekly radio show hosted by former Crows ruckman Sam Jacobs and Triple M’s Mark ‘Thomo’ Thomas will balance humor and analysis, and provide fans with the ultimate Crows experience as ‘they venture behind the scenes and delve into the lives of players away from Football.
Among the offerings on this Sunday’s premiere show is a chat with keen young midfielder and angler Ned McHenry and a flashback moment with former striker Jason Porplyzia, as well as a cheeky segment where fans will get a glimpse of the locker room banter.
Meanwhile, in its eighth free-to-air TV season, the Club-produced Crows Show will return to Channel 7 Adelaide with a new look this year.
With unrivaled access, new lifestyle journalist Belinda Sloane will join longtime host Mark Bickley to share the latest news from Adelaide’s three teams, including interviews with players and staff and insight into the most big league problems.
Jacobs said the radio show would provide a new perspective for Crows fans.
“The Crows Show has been an integral part of the Club for so long and it’s great to join that family with the radio show,” said Jacobs.
“Thomo is a great guy who loves his football and I’m looking forward to working alongside him this year.
“As a former player, I have a connection to the group of players, but I’m also really passionate about the great history of our club, and making sure we bring that to life and commit as much as possible with our members and fans.
“Having both shows is something truly unique in Australian sport and we look forward to bringing our supporters on the journey with us this season and beyond.”
The radio version of The Crows Show can be heard on 104.7 Triple M every Sunday from 9-10am or on demand via the LiSTNR app.
The Crows Show returns to Channel 7 this Sunday at 3 p.m.
