New Channel 9 chief footy reporter ‘very grateful’ for support, weighs in on biggest footy stories right now
Tom Morris has been unveiled as Channel 9’s new chief football reporter, saying he remains “very grateful” for the support he’s been shown following a difficult few years.
Morris was sacked from Fox Footy at the start of the 2022 AFL season following a damaging leaked video where he was heard making disparaging remarks about a colleague.
“For a long time I thought there wouldn’t be a full time job (for me),” Morris told Neil Mitchell on 3AW Mornings after landing the coveted footy reporting role.
