Book Description

Enjoy an unprecedented tour of the commentary box with one of Australia's most experienced and respected callers. Peter Meares talks to 33 radio and television commentators from the major networks, who cover all the sports, from athletics to tennis. They describe how they prepare for a call, what happens when they forget a name, or even the score, want to sneeze on air, as well their most memorable call, player or match. From Richie Benaud to Ian Healey, Rex Mossop to Ray Warren, from Gordon Bray to Greg Clark, George Grljusich to Dennis Cometti, from Jim Lane to Jim Maxwell, and Anne Sargeant to Kerryn Pratt, the doyens of radio and TV sports commentary across the networks reveal all.
