Channel 9 has announced the end of an era, calling time on The Footy Show after 25 years of entertaining rugby league fans on Thursday nights.
Co-host Erin Molan will remain with the network in a new role.
Nine director of sport Tom Malone paid tribute to the staff who have contributed to the show's success over the years, particularly long-time former host Paul Vautin.
Ratings have declined in recent years.
"It's been an incredible ride for The Footy Show. A quarter of a century of laughs, controversy and first-class footy analysis. I want to thank everyone who has contributed to this amazing era of live sports-entertainment television – from producers, editors, camera operators, the players, guests and of course the legendary hosts.
"Fatty holds the record for the longest-serving host of any prime time Australian TV show – a tribute to both his understanding of the game, his authenticity, and not to mention his incredible comedic timing. In recent years, Erin has equally brought a new energy, perspective and showed her passion for the game.
"Erin is a star and a great broadcaster. She's going to take an even more prominent role on Nine's sports broadcasts."
Nine announced it would launch two new post-match shows to follow games on Thursday and Friday nights next year "with a strong emphasis of being at the ground, and interacting with players, fans and coaches".
