AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'He's been a fixture in Australian lounge rooms for decades - the face of sport on the Nine Network for thirty years. He has presented the sports report on the evening news, been the long-time host of The Wide World of Sport and acted as the network's anchorman at many of the world's biggest sporting events, including the summer and winter Olympics, the Commonwealth Games, Wimbledon and the US Masters.

'He has been a legendary survivor in an industry notorious for its fickleness, and has worked closely with some of the biggest names in Australian television and sport. Who could forget his almost nightly fits of giggles as Graeme Kennedy's 'straight man' co-host?

'He's also the man of many nicknames: The Male Model from Mudgee, Sexy Eyes, The Man with the Mona Lisa Smile and, most notoriously and thanks to Graeme Kennedy: Two Dogs!

'He is Ken Sutcliffe, much-loved journalist, sportscaster and personality. The story of his life also takes in many landmark events in Australian sport and television over the last thirty years, and it is one told with characteristic good humour and larrikin charm. How a boy living in a tent beside a railway line became one of our most familiar faces and respected names makes for an entertaining and revealing read. Ken's firmly-held opinions on all things sport are fascinating and insightful. His life is a great Australian story.' (From the publisher's website.)
