The AFL Players Association has awarded the prestigious Grant Hattam Trophy for excellence in sports journalism to the team at Saturday Night Footy for the #DISCOVERED series – and in particular a story on young GWS Giants star Jeremy Cameron.
The presentation was made at the 2013 AFL Players‟ MVP Awards held at Peninsula, Docklands, Tuesday night.
#DISCOVERED is a weekly segment in Seven’s Saturday Night Footy pre-game show which focuses on a player’s life away from football.
Seven‟s Head of Sport, Saul Shtein, said: “This is fantastic recognition for the Saturday Night production team, and in particular Chris Jones, Richard Hughes, Mitch Finlayson and Jodie Fullerton.
“Discovered‟ is about looking at players off the field and finding out what makes them tick. So to be acknowledged in this way by the players themselves is particularly satisfying.”
