AFL great Gerard Healy and his Sports Day show are moving to an old rival network in a major shake-up of Melbourne’s evening radio landscape.

Sports Day is heading to SEN, with Healy getting a new co-host with Port Adelaide champion Ken Cornes replacing Sam McClure.

The move will begin from November 1, with Sports Day being a two-hour program starting at 5.30 pm.

“It’s been a privilege to host Sports Day for 25 years, and I couldn’t be happier for the program to find a new home at SEN,” said Healy.

I look forward to working with Ken, someone I have the utmost respect for, as we cover the biggest issues in the AFL and the SEN airwaves in general.

In total, Healy has spent 28 years at 3AW, including time on Sports Day, and his exit follows his ninth opportunity across the radio landscape.

3AW’s show fits the national brand of one-host, hour-long shows as a broad sports world brand – as opposed to Healey’s preferred two-host format.

McClure now hosts the Melbourne version of the show.

“It’s a natural fit for Sports Day to join the SEN platform on a regular basis,” said Craig Hutchison, chief executive of SEN.

“There will never be a more respected voice on the Radio Drive Times lot than Gerrard’s. Since the early 1990s he has helped pioneer and lead sports radio coverage in Australia as a top-rating every night.

“It’s an honor to have the show and Gerard move to 1116 SEN and our wider SEN network.”

Healy is no stranger to the AFL community, having been a former player with Melbourne and the Sydney Swans in the 80s.

In the year He won the Brownlow Medal in 1988 and is a three-time All-Australian, a member of the Sydney Swans team of the century and a Leigh Matthews Trophy winner as VFLPA MVP.

In the year After retiring from the game in 1990, Healy turned to commentary and joined Fox Football for the first time in 2004.
