Ray Hadley extends contract with Nine to 2026
Broadcaster Ray Hadley will call his seventh Olympics and 100th State of Origin after signing a contract extension with Nine until the end of 2026.
Hadley will continue to host The Ray Hadley Morning Show for at least another three-and-a-half years, as well as commentate the Paris Olympics in 2024.
And in 2025, he'll notch up 100 State of Origin calls, an unmated record on TV or radio.

"We are delighted that Ray is committing to broadcast his number one show for another three years, call rugby league, and commentate at the Olympics," Nine Radio managing director Tom Malone said.
"Ray is a broadcaster of unmatched work ethic and likely never to be repeated success.
"I want to thank him for his great loyalty to 2GB. Every day at 9am our listeners, right across Australia, tune in for Ray's take on the day's news and sport, as he sets the national agenda and provides great laughter and entertainment along the way."

Hadley said he was looking forward to calling some of the biggest events at Paris 2024.
"After sitting down with Tom Malone over an extended period, and then gaining the support of my wife Sophie, I decided to accept an offer to extend my current deal," Hadley said.
"Nine Radio is an exciting place to broadcast and I'm looking forward to the next three years as much as I've enjoyed the past 22 years at 2GB.
"I'm also excited to be back at the Olympic Games in Paris 2024 – my seventh Olympics – and again, I'll be the lead commentator at the swimming and track and field.
"My life balance is wonderful these days thanks to my wife, my children, my grandchildren and the management of Nine Radio."
