Chris Judd

Port Adelaide great Kane Cornes will replace Chris Judd on Nine’s Footy Classified in 2020, according to The Herald Sun.

Cornes will reportedly join the revamped program that will feature twice a week on Monday and Wednesday nights.

Additionally, former Saints and Dockers coach Ross Lyon is “tipped to be in the mix” as a regular guest as the show moves towards a rotating panel of hosts and commentators.

Matthew Lloyd, Caroline Wilson and Craig Hutchison are expected to return to round out the panel with Cornes.

Cornes declined to comment when contacted by The Herald Sun. 

Judd departed the show in October following a difficult year where he struggled to balance his media role with his position as the Carlton football director.
