Butler has since accepted a position with Melbourne’s Ten News First and Ten Sport.

Prior to joining Ten’s weekday news lineup, Goodings was a co-host on Adelaide radio station FIVEaa.

In December last year FIVEaa’s Goodings and co-host David Penberthy lost their breakfast lead to ABC Adelaide as they dropped 1.2 ratings points to a 13.4% audience share.

In his new role at Ten Adelaide, Goodings will join news presenter Rebecca Morse from January 28.

“I couldn’t be more thrilled to be joining the team at Ten News First. Sport is a passion of mine and the opportunity to work on the biggest sporting stories in 2019 with the dynamic group at Ten is an incredible one.

“Continuing to watch, read, and tweet about sport but getting to call it work is pretty exciting too,” Goodings said in a statement.

Ross Dagan, director of news content at Network Ten, added: “I know Will is a fantastic fit for our outstanding Adelaide team.

“I haven’t met a more enthusiastic sports fan, so he is perfect to front our sports coverage. His radio role means he is already well placed to know what matters most to the people of South Australia.”
