The V8 Sleuth scores TV role for 2018 …
STORY: V8 SLEUTH STAFF
V8 SLEUTH’S Aaron Noonan is returning to Australian motorsport TV screens in a permanent role this year with Ten Sport.
The experienced broadcaster and writer will join Ten’s coverage in a multi-faceted role for six marquee Supercars Championship events for 2018, beginning with this weekend’s Adelaide 500 and followed by the broadcaster’s free-to-air coverage of the Townsville, Sandown, Bathurst, Gold Coast and Newcastle events.
Noonan will patrol pit lane picking up news and interviews with the stars of the championship and bringing viewers the latest from the track in a role that builds on from his appearances on Ten last year at the Bathurst and Newcastle rounds.
The former Seven and Supercars TV commentator/reporter will also be a regular contributor to Ten’s ‘RPM’ program this year with a range of colour stories and interviews.
Noonan will join Matt White, Nissan star Rick Kelly, Kate Peck and Supercars TV’s Riana Crehan in the Ten Sport Supercars broadcast team with the Supercars TV team – Neil Crompton, Mark Skaife, Greg Murphy, Mark Larkham and Crehan – covering the practice, qualifying and race sessions.
Noonan spent eight years working for Supercars TV between 2007 and 2014 on the Seven Network as the lead supports commentator and occasional Supercars commentator in addition to reporting duties for V8Xtra and a variety of other roles.
Since then he’s worked on two seasons of Shannons Legends of Motorsport on 7mate as both co-host and producer and also on Seven’s 2016 Rio Olympic Games coverage as well as commentating the Toyota 86 Racing Series for the last two years shown on both FOX and Ten.
The 36-year-old is the head of the multi-faceted AN1 Media motorsport media agency based in Melbourne and will be heading to his 19th Adelaide 500 this weekend having only missed the first in 1999 – while still a high school student!
His company has also been heavily involved in the build-up to this year’s 20th running of the Adelaide 500, arranging a special collection of 20 Supercars from the event’s history to be on display for fans at this year’s event.
Ten Sport’s coverage of the Adelaide 500 kicks off this Friday before the races are held on Saturday and Sunday with live coverage of each.
