AFL Trade Radio recruits Stephen Silvagni
Stephen Silvagni is the latest addition to the AFL Trade Radio roster.
The former Carlton Blues list manager, who has spent a decade building talent at multiple clubs, will appear daily on AFL Trade Radio to discuss player movements.
Trade Radio will kick off after the 2020 season concludes, with Damian Barrett and Kane Cornes to join Silvagni from Monday, October 26.
His addition coincides with the hire of AFL hall of famer Terry Wallace.
“There is no one better qualified to offer expert insight and analysis around player movements than SOS,” Barrett said.
“He has masterminded some of the biggest trades and draft picks at both GWS and his beloved Carlton, he knows the people who crunch the deals and we are thrilled that he will join the AFL Trade Radio team this year.”
AFL Trade Radio is now in its 10th season, and during peak trade season in 2019, topped the All Australian Podcast ranker in October as the most downloaded podcast in the country.
“As it has done since day one, AFL Trade Radio will provide behind-scenes access that no one else gets to all the trades, often before they happen, and we can’t wait to kick off again, straight after finals,” Barrett added.
AFL Trade Radio broadcast 156 hours of radio and 130 hours of live video across AFL.com.au and the AFL Live app in 2019 with syndicated windows across the SEN network.
Fans can listen live and video stream AFL Trade Radio from 7am – 7pm each day from October 26 until the trade period is complete on 12 November.
