Supercars’ broadcast negotiations have been thrown a curveball with the axing of Network 10 Head of Sport and long-time championship supporter Matt White.
A former full-time Supercars commentator, White has long been a supporter of motorsport and a presenter on the Network 10 magazine-style show RPM.
Recently, White has been part of the BP Supercars All Stars Eseries commentary team.
“(White) leaves with our sincere thanks and very best wishes for the future,” a network spokeswoman told The Sydney Morning Herald.
White joined Network 10 in the early 1990s through to the mid-2000s. He later went on to work for Channel Seven before a return to Network 10 in 2014.
In 2018 he was appointed the Head of Sport, replacing David Barham, and led the network’s production of the Melbourne Cup Carnival and Rugby World Cup.
White told Speedcafe.com he was not in a position to comment.
