The Path to Matchday Saturday

The Path to Matchday Saturday

Known by Australian Football supporters as one of the faces of football broadcasting in Australia, Adam Peacock has come a long way in his career.

Peacock began his career as a cadet journalist at Channel 7 before gaining a spot as a reporter on the weekly sports program ‘Sportsworld’. Amongst reporting across a host of sports – his commentary debut came at the Winter Olympics with Ski Jumping.

“I remember an Austrian kid Thomas Morgenstern won the Gold medal. As three or four nights earlier he had been carted out of a bar after getting blind drunk"

In 2006, Peacock moved to Fox Sports News contributing to the 24 hour news channel.

‘No offense to the news channel, but it got a bit laborious after four years’

‘One night I was talking about Ben Cousins, Melbourne Storm Salary Cap, some other druggo and none of it was about sport or achievement’

After a few years a new opportunity presented itself to jump fully into his original passion of football by hosting the football coverage on Fox Sports via Match Day Saturday.

Adams finally chats on the process undertaken to produce his book 'That Night – a decade on, the story of Australian Football’s greatest night’.
