AFL 360 is an Australian nightly talk show that deals with the issues in the Australian Football League (AFL). It currently airs on Fox Footy at 7:30 pm Mondays to Thursdays. 360 contrasts with most similar AFL talk-shows as its hosts, Gerard Whateley and Mark 'Robbo' Robinson, are professional journalists rather than ex-players turned journalists. The show also features players and coaches as regular guests.
AFL 360 Wikipedia
AFL 360 was launched as a weekly show on Fox Sports in 2010, airing on Wednesday nights, and continued as such in 2011. In 2012, the show moved to the new Fox Footy channel, a sister channel to Fox Sports dedicated purely to AFL. Since then, the show airs four times per week, apart from occasions in which there is a Monday or Thursday night match in the AFL. The final episode each year airs the Monday after the Grand Final.
The show has also aired additional episodes during the season under the AFL 360 banner, such as an extended interview between Whateley and Mick Malthouse in 2015, just days after he was sacked as Carlton coach. On select occasions, the show has returned to air in the off-season to cover major breaking news in AFL. This has included in October 2013 to cover Lance Franklin's nine-year deal with the Sydney Swans, and in January 2016 following the final Court of Arbitration for Sport judgement in the Essendon Football Club supplements controversy.Gerard Whateley
