FOX SPORTS today announced that one of the country’s most exciting and talented athletes, Ellyse Perry, will join Australia’s Sports Leader to appear across a range of sports broadcasts and magazine shows.

As one of Australia’s brightest young athletes, the dual international will add a fresh perspective and a unique view to FOX SPORTS’ coverage. Gary Burns, Head of FOX SPORTS Channels said: “It’s a huge coup for FOX SPORTS to have Ellyse on board. She has achieved incredible things in football and cricket and is an inspiration to a generation of young athletes.”

“We’ll work with Ellyse and get her involved in a number of our broadcasts and programs with a long-term view to her development as a sports broadcaster.”

“Ellyse’s star is rising and she has plenty more to achieve in her sporting career andwe are thrilled that we will be part of the journey. We are proud to have her as part of the team,” Gary said.

Ellyse said: “It’s a huge honour to join such a wonderful broadcaster like FOX SPORTS. I’ve always had a great time when I’ve worked with the team in the past and to be able to do this more and in an official capacity is really exciting for me.”

“It will definitely be a different experience for me – as the majority of sport I’ve been involved in I’ve been playing – so I’m looking forward to taking a step back and looking at it from the other side.”

“It might also be beneficial from my own playing in terms of viewing and accessing things in a different way or maybe learning a thing or two that I wouldn’t necessarily see when you’re playing,” Ellyse said.
