TERRY KENNEDY

Backed by a wealth of experience dating back to 1982 when he joined the Ten TV Network, Terry has amassed a solid all-round sporting knowledge. As the Big Sports Breakfast co-host with Michael Slater, this experience has become a vital component in the presentation of such a comprehensive early morning sporting programme spanning three-and-a-half-hours from 5.30 am Monday to Friday. Terry is known for having some firm opinions that, on occasions may veer towards the controversial, and has the capacity to please some of the audience and alienate others. An avid rugby league follower he also is particularly keen on racing.

MICHAEL SLATER

After a successful international sporting career, Michael, affectionately known as 'Slats', deftly has swapped the cricket bat for the microphone. Branching out of an 11-year cricket career embracing 74 tests and 42 one-day internationals for Australia, he has widened his sporting repertoire to many other arenas. Michael has formed a solid partnership with TK on the Big Sports Breakfast each weekday from 5.30am. He is a part of Channel Nine's prestigious Wide World Of Sports cricket commentary team and he also reports on a number of Channel Nine programs. As another addition to his repertoire he has written his autobiography, Slats – the Michael Slater story. In his limited leisure time he is a keen golfer, passionate Manly supporter and he has followed the TK's lead into racehorse ownership.

MARIO KOLOTAS

In 2000 Mario joined the Big Sports Breakfast show and in 2005 became the Executive Producer. Mario shoulders the responsibility for the daily preparation of the BSB which he transforms into an entertaining and informative tapestry that hits the airwaves. As personal Barista to the boys he keeps the flat whites, cappuccinos and Lattes flowing throughout the program. Prior to his radio career Mario had aspirations to be an actor, sadly these dreams were misguided as his career peaked when he was the guy zipping up dead bodies in the TV series Water Rats . In 2000 he was one of the extras seen dying in a plane crash in Mission Impossible 2, this on screen death also marked the end of his acting career. Mario now spends his spare time on the committee of charity "Save Our Sons" a cause close to his heart.

PETER DUFFY

Soon after having joined the station in 1999, Peter became panel operator for the Big Sports Breakfast. Co-host at the time, Greg Radley, imposed on him the alliteration-laden pseudonym “Peter the perfect panel-puncher from Putney” which has stuck even after his 2006 promotion to producer of the breakfast programme. Working with executive producer, Mario Kolotas, he has won a reputation of tenaciously tracking down sporting interviews from around the world even if his pursuits were hiding behind Do Not Disturb signs on hotel room doors. In the rugby league arena he is a devoted Tigers supporter.

JONO FARR

As panel operator Jono has the unenviable and, sometimes, unpredictable task of guiding TK and Slats through three and a half hours of live breakfast radio. Jono’s radio career started in 1998 with Austereo and two years later he joined Sky Sports Radio. After stints with other commercial networks he returned to Sky Sports Radio as panel operator for the Big Sports Breakfast. In his spare time Jono has proved to be talented in the voice over field and a fantastic host of the Monday to Friday 5am to 5.30 program, The Best of the Big Sports Breakfast.
