Host of Wipe Out & The Sunday Footy Show
James Brayshaw is one of Australia’s key sporting media personalities and one of few presenters in the industry to commentate both AFL and cricket on radio and television.
James is best known as host of Channel Nine’s Wipeout Australia and The Sunday Footy Show as well as being co-host with Garry Lyon on Australia’s number one AFL program, The Footy Show. He commentates the 20/20 cricket for Channel Nine as well as being part of the 3MMM AFL commentary team.
James co hosted the Commonwealth Games and M Sport with Gary Lyon on Channel Nine and was an audience favourite for his larrakin humour on Triple M’s breakfast show The Cage, which aired for a hugely successful five years on the Austereo Network.
Prior to making a name for himself in television, he had an accomplished career in broadcasting on SAFM calling cricket on ABC national radio. He has also appeared on breakfast radio and read the nightly sports news.
James’ versatility across both AFL and cricket confirms his standing as one the industry’s respected experts and a great “’all rounder”. A former state cricketer spanning a decade, with a career run of 4,934 and a 42.53 average, his first hand knowledge adds credibility to his commentary and hosting abilities.
Despite his demanding media commitments, James manages to maintain a strong involvement in a range of corporate and charity capacities as host or MC.
