Neroli Meadows’s Career
Neroli Meadows began her career as a weekend sports producer at Perth 6PR radio station in 2006, before spending four years as a sports reporter on Today Tonight at Seven Network.
In March 2017, Meadows spoke out against Herald Sun chief football writer and fellow Fox Footy host Mark Robinson over an article he wrote portraying Adelaide co-captain Erin Phillips kissing her wife as “a little sensual for a number of people” at the AFL Women’s awards ceremony that year. She joined the inaugural AFL Women’s commentary team at Fox Footy in 2017, and joined Triple M for her coverage of AFL and cricket, as well as Fox Sports for her coverage of the 2017–18 NBL National Basketball League (NBL).
She was a panel person on the Network Ten Before the Game program in the final year of the program in 2013 along with Andrew Maher, Mick Molloy, Dave Hughes and Anthony Lehmann, and has also appeared on the association’s Santo, Sam and Ed’s Total Football Comedy Show and the game show Have You Been Paying Attention?. In January 2016, Meadows filmed an interview with her and fellow sports reporter Mel McLaughlin (who at the time worked for Network Ten) on ABC program 7.30 about offensive remarks made by Jamaican cricketer Chris Gayle.
Meadows presented the Game Day Live Fox Sports show, where she talked to Australian sportspeople from a variety of sports, and the AFL Tonight Fox Footy segment, where she spoke to players and other AFL personalities. In 2018, alongside Sarah Jones and Kelli Underwood, she also started co-hosting the On the Mark Fox Footy programme.
The Herald Sun announced in February 2019 that Meadows was in negotiations with the Nine Network to become the female co-host of the revamped AFL Footy Show, which she will be balancing with her regular Fox Footy engagements. In March 2019 she was confirmed to be co-host, reuniting with Anthony Lehmann from their work on Before the Game. But after weeks of low ratings, the series was cancelled just seven episodes into the new season.
Fox Sports left Meadows in October 2019 due to suspected cost-cutting that came as a shock to media and fans alike; Foxtel manager Patrick Delany justified the move by saying, “We have plenty of women on the network and from time to time people go without jobs for life.” In January 2020, Meadows joined the Nine Network as a court announcer and post-match interviewer for coverage of the 2020 Brisbane International and the 2020 Australian Open. Later that month she joined ESPN Australia for coverage of the Super Bowl LIV in Miami.
