Lou Richards

Tribute to a Legend

JAMTV last night paid tribute to TV ICON and Collingwood legend Lou Richards, in a touching ½ hour special produced for the Seven Network.

Hosted by Bruce McAvaney, the celebration reflected on Lou’s legacy that stretched far beyond the playing field and looked back on his remarkable life and achievements.

From his very early days at Collingwood we celebrated his stellar playing career and his role as football’s first personality. We went down memory lane to enjoy the best of Lou on iconic programs such as World of Sport, League Teams, Wide World of Sports and also his work on radio and newspaper.

Head of Production, John Murray said “in less than 48 hrs our team was able to put together a tribute that showed Lou Richards really was “More than a legend””.
