A man of many parts, Eddie McGuire is an actor, broadcaster, businessman, and commentator.
Born and raised in Broadmeadows a suburb of Melbourne, Eddie was determined to leave a legacy in life.
This determination led him like his older brother before him to win a scholarship to study at Christian Brothers’ College, St Kilda.
McGuire got his first break in media work as an Australian Rules Football statistician and cricket reporter for The Herald; he had this job through the help of his older brother Frank who was a sports reporter for a newspaper.
Through hard work and determination, Eddie rose to become the chief executive officer of Nine Network, one of Australia’s prominent media outfits.
