He bobs up anywhere that does talkback, I've heard him on 3AW more than a few times. Always a must listen as soon as the host says "we've got Chris from Camberwell on the line" -- even better if the host is new and doesn't know what they're in for.surely chris from camberwell is a plant??? ,hes been the same for years,on the payroll ?
While I agree with your first point to an extent, Finey did become very good at hosting it. Had a good feel for when to let callers go, when to pull them up, etc.I think Finey's Final Siren is lionised because it was the last show still doing footy talkback. I don't think it matters which station does it, I just want it back.
With that said though, it's ridiculous that a sports station won't pay a presenter to do talkback between 11pm - midnight on a Friday night. It's such easy, cheap content.
