Sport FM wins Colin Minson Best Radio Coverage at WA Football Media Awards

91.3 Sport FM was awarded the inaugural Colin Minson Best WAFL Radio Coverage at the WA Football Media Awards last Tuesday, December 5th.

While this is the station’s sixth consecutive best WAFL radio coverage award, it is the first time the award has been named after the stations founder, broadcasting legend Colin Minson after his passing in March 2022. 

Colin’s wife and life member of the station Irene Minson presented the award to Jacob Landsmeer and Jack Crawshaw in front of media luminaries last Tuesday night at Optus Stadium. 

“It’s a great honour for the station to win this award, particularly named in Colin’s memory and legacy to broadcasting WAFL football,” Station chairman Crawshaw said. 

“Thanks to the hard work of the entire station for their efforts, led by our commentary team for another outstanding season of WAFL.” 

The station broadcast all six WAFL finals plus a game of the round, 30 games in total for season 2023 with highlights including broadcasting matches in Broome and Geraldton. 

“This season has been special for a number of reasons, particularly with the culmination of 2023 with East Fremantle winning a drought breaking premiership,” WAFL caller and host of WAFL World Jacob Landsmeer said. 

“Thanks to our hard working team, led by experts Tony Micale and Chris Mitsopolous and co-commentator Glenn Mitchell.” 

“Thanks also to regular contributors Brett Raponi, Peter Sumich and John Townsend for their insights and breaking news stories across our weekday programs.” 

Townsend took home the best WAFL radio story award, breaking the East Fremantle total player payments story on the eve of finals on Saturday morning show ‘Before the Footy’. 

The station thanks the WA Football Media Guild and the WA Football Commission for the award, as the station continues to provide award winning WAFL coverage in to 2024.
