Dwayne Russell's Biography

A highly accurate, polished and well-presented broadcaster and journalist since the end of his playing days, Dwayne Russell is one of the more regularly heard voices during the AFL season.


An experienced radio and television commentator with 3AW and Fox Sports' AFL coverage, Russell combines knowledge, humour and enthusiasm in his calls. Russell came to prominence with the ABC in 1997, forging a reputation as one of the country's most highly regarded and respected commentators.
When Channel 9 gained the AFL rights at the start of 2002, they did not hesitate to add Russell to their commentary team. He moved to Fox Sports at the beginning of the 2007 season and continues to entertain with his informative description of the action. Russell’s presence on Fox includes his role as host of the weekly AFL round-up ‘The Winners’.
Dwayne Russell’s repertoire has also extended to include commentating Olympic and Commonwealth Games Hockey, the Australian Open Tennis and the NBL for Fox Sports.
He and Gerard Healy head up the popular Sports Today program on AW, heard by a huge audience across Victoria each weeknight. Russell has also written regular columns for The Geelong Advertiser and The Sunday Age.
Originally from Port Adelaide, Russell was an exciting and powerful forward during his brief four-year AFL career with Geelong. Featuring in one of the AFL's all-time great forward lines alongside Barry Stoneham, Billy Brownless and the brilliant Gary Ablett, Russell kicked 51 goals in 60 games with Geelong, playing in two grand finals.
Russell also played 71 games with Port Adelaide in the SANFL, representing South Australia on four occasions, once as captain. With one of the most recognisable voices in sports casting, Russell is just as adept in his MC and keynote speaking roles as he is calling the action.
