Full Presenter Profile & Bio
A great character on and off the air, Billy Brownless has an active media career in radio and television, continuing to rank as a hit with audiences everywhere.
The former high-flying Geelong forward is best known for his decade-long involvement with the Nine Network’s Logie award-winning program The Footy Show. Billy is a regular panel member, previewing the upcoming round of AFL and is also a member of the Sunday Footy Show team.
Brownless has had a long-term involvement in radio, with his sense of humour and keen sporting knowledge combining to provide listeners with some fast-paced on-air action.
In 2010, Billy joined the ever popular Triple M AFL coverage, eliciting more of the on-air banter that has made him a fan favourite. Teaming up with Footy Show cohort James Brayshaw as co-host of Rush Hour, Triple M’s drive time radio show which is on air Monday to Friday afternoons 4-6pm quickly become a radio sensation. Prior to this, Brownless was an original member of Melbourne’s 24-hour sports talkback station SEN 1116.
Third on Geelong’s all-time goal-kicking list behind Gary Ablett and Doug Wade, Brownless is popular on the speaking circuit thanks to his many anecdotes from 25 years in both the football and media spotlight. In 2008, Billy released his first book “Billy’s Book for Blokes” which he draws on his own experiences and ideas to help guide the blokes in the 21st century. A second book, “The Best Man Walks Into A Bar Jokes” hit shelves in 2009.
