The World Football Programme has been on air since 1987 and has
expanded and morphed from one to two hours of local, national and international
football. In 2010 the programme expanded to three hours.
The World Football Programme interviews guests from local leagues
to national teams and international leagues. A sampling of our guests includes
National Coaches such as Aurelio Vidmar and Tom Sermanni, players such as Rhys
Williams, Lisa De Vanna, Sarah Walsh, Fox Sport presenters Simon Hill and Mike
Cockerill, SBS presenters Francis Awaritefe and Vitor Sobral, local icons Stan
Lazaridis, Alistair Edwards and Gary Marocchi. Plus 442, Green and Gold Army,
The Four Diegos and Full on Football Media personalities. Many media students
have kick-started their careers with the programme including Rob Scott of the
ABC and Ann Odong of thewomensgame.com.
The programme is researched, produced and presented by a team of two: Penny
Tannerhoath and Jason Washington-King. Penny has played football for state and
country and Jason is a Premier League Coach and TAFE Sports Lecturer. We all
coach, play or administrate in the sport and love talking about all aspects of
The team have a well-earned break during Easter and Christmas
through January, returning on-air in February.
