Beginning his media career in the 1990s, James worked for the Seven Network in Adelaide. A substitute sports anchor for the Seven Nightly News bulletin and appearances on football discussion programs, such as Footy Plus, he began to gain popularity for his humourous turn of phrase as much as for his footballing insights.
As well as his football coverage, James Brayshaw was also an audience favourite for his larrikin humour on Triple M’s breakfast show The Cage, which finished on air at the end of 2007 after a hugely successful 5 years. James Brayshaw is one of the few presenters in the industry who commentates both AFL and cricket on radio and television.
A former state cricketer spanning a decade, Brayshaw’s first-hand knowledge adds credibility to his commentary and hosting abilities. James’ versatility across both AFL and cricket confirms his standing as one the industry’s respected experts and a great all-rounder.
Despite his demanding media commitments, James Brayshaw manages to maintain a strong involvement in a range of corporate and charity capacities as host or MC.
