Sky Racing’s Big Sports Breakfast bigger than ever

Sky Racing launched another promise-filled year of the popular Big Sports Breakfast show yesterday, with a new studio on show to viewers watching the radio program’s simulcast.

Hosts Terry Kennedy and Michael Slater are back behind the desk, demonstrating they have more than a face for radio as the bespoke studio at Sky’s Frenchs Forest headquarters is broadcast across Foxtel and streamed online, with podcasts available through mobile apps.

“This is the 16th year of Big Sports Breakfast and the seventh for Slats and I together,” said co-host Terry Kennedy.

“Our new studio is purpose-built for radio, TV and digital and it’s fantastic. Sky viewers are lucky enough to see Slats and I looking as best as we can at 5.30 in the morning.

“I’m looking forward to hosting high profile guests in the new studio and of course hitting the road for live broadcasts from some the best racing and sports events around the country.”

The show has announced a selection of experts and regulars for 2015:

– NSW and Sharks skipper Paul Gallen will talk all things Rugby League

– Rod Gallegos will discuss racing

– Australian opening batsman David Warner and former test bowlers Stuart Clark and Geoff Lawson will talk cricket news

– Roger Rasheed will have the word on tennis

– Gerard Middleton will cross from TAB HQ with the latest odds

Sydney Morning Herald sports journalist Andrew Webster will also host the show from time-to-time.


The success of the Big Sports Breakfast has led to the show expanding its Monday-to-Friday franchise to also include Sundays (6am – 9am).

Commentating this, News Limited racing expert Ray Thomas will be joined during the summer months by Stuart Clark, and by former NRL player Jimmy Smith during winter.
