Gravity Media and JAM TV have confirmed an ongoing partnership to produce television coverage of the 2023 AFLW season.
This is the seventh AFLW season for Gravity Media’s broadcast facilities collaboration with JAM TV, which produces AFLW television coverage for Fox Footy and Kayo.
Gravity Media’s state-of-the-art outside broadcast units, satellite and uplink facilities, and crews will be working closely with JAM TV’s production team as they criss-cross the country over the coming three months.
Gravity Media will be involved in the coverage of 47 games in this AFLW season. In addition to providing broadcast technologies for JAM TV, Gravity Media will also produce the big screens coverage at the stadiums.
Cos Cardone, CEO of JAM TV, said, “Gravity Media has been our AFLW technical provider since the very first game in the very first year of AFLW. It’s been an outstanding collaboration which has delivered a seamless and successful coverage to our broadcast partner Fox Sports every year.”
“We look forward to the launch of another AFLW season in September, which together with JAM TV’s finals coverage of the VFL, SANFL, and WAFL competitions, makes for a big and exciting month ahead for our talented football production team at JAM TV,” added Cardone.
Marcus Doherty, Account Executive – Media Services and Facilities at Gravity Media, said, “We are thrilled to again be working with JAM TV on AFLW. We have a long partnership with JAM TV working on major events and look forward to again being a part of such an exciting competition and delivering JAM TV’s Fox Sports and Kayo coverage of the AFLW.”
Kahleah Webb, Head of Operations at Gravity Media, said, “Gravity Media will use nine outside broadcast trucks, including an SNG fleet, and a total team of 800 crew across the country to deliver a total of 130 hours of AFLW coverage from 17 venues around Australia over the coming 10 weeks. It is a significant technological and logistical exercise that builds on our successful AFLW broadcast facilities provision to JAM TV over the past seven years.”
