Sheahan finishes upBy Jonas Lopez in Media News on Friday, 16th October 2020 at 3:44pm
Mike Sheahan is bowing out of covering the footy scene permanently.
He revealed that the 20 October episode of his FOX Footy show, Open Mike, will be his last, with AFL 360 hosts Gerard Whateley and Mark Robinson leading the tributes.
Sheahan is one of Australia’s most prominent footy journalists, having spent over 20 years covering the game. Open Mike went on-air in 2009.
“I cherish my time at Fox Footy. I have worked on every program on the network at some point, culminating with 11 years on Open Mike, and now get to leave on my own terms. I have spent 50 years at the top level in the game I have loved from birth… without taking a mark or kicking a goal! I’ve been blessed,” said Sheahan.
