Ray Hadley and Bob Fulton step down from full-time roles on the Continuous Call Team

Radio veterans Ray Hadley and Bob Fulton have stepped down from their full-time roles on 2GB’s Continuous Call Team, paving the way for the next generation of broadcasters to step in.

Hadley is a founding member of the team which first began in 1987. He is contracted to Nine Radio for a further five years and will continue to present his morning program, which is heard on 2GB, 4BC and network stations around Australia.

Fulton, one of rugby league’s Immortals, has been working with Hadley and the team for 32 of the 33 years the Continuous Call Team has broadcast.

Hadley said the time had come for him to step back in his career.

“I have worked either six or seven days a week for most of the past 33 years and it is now time that the young men and women who already do most of the heavy lifting are given their chance,” he said.

“Bob Fulton is one of my dearest friends and he has helped guide me for the best part of my career. We have a long-standing personal agreement that we will finish our full-time roles with the Continuous Call Team together.”

From 2020, Hadley and Fulton will consult and advise the Continuous Call Team, while Hadley will continue to call State of Origin games and the NRL Grand Final.

Nine’s managing director of radio, Tom Malone, said the decision marked the end of an era.

“Ray Hadley and Bob Fulton have been institutions not only of the Continuous Call Team, but of Australian radio, for more than three decades,” said Malone.

“While today marks the end of an era, we respect Ray and Bob’s wishes to finish their full-time weekend commitments together at this time. I am delighted that both will be available to guide the next generation of Continuous Call Team talent into the future.”

Further announcements regarding the 2020 Continuous Call Team line-up will be made shortly.
