John (Sam) Newman

On Application
Australia - Vic

One of Australian televisions most popular and controversial stars John 'Sam' Newman is one of AFL footballs most legendary characters. Sam captained Geelong and was a State and All-Australian Representative, playing in the ruck and at centre-half forward.

He joined radio station 3AW as a football commentator in 1981 and appeared on World of Sport on Channel 7 for seven years. Sam's most loved (and sometimes loathed) role today is as co-host of Channel 9's award winning The Footy Show where Newman's contribution is rarely short of unforgettable.

Away from the media, he provides specialist ruck coaching to various AFL players.  His inimitable style makes him a popular host and unique public speaker at any corporate or sporting event.

Imagine waking up blind. One moment you can see, and in the next moment, your vision is made up only of childhood memories. At the tender age of 16, this became a reality for Ben Pettingill when overnight he lost 98% of his eyesight to a rare genetic syndrome, Lebers Hereditary Optic Neuropathy. While the shock, then grief of losing one's eyesight cannot be discounted, once Ben processed his new reality he realised that he had to make a choice that would define the rest of his life. Ben believed that a blind man could see, and his miracle was the activation of ‘True Vision' and 'Limitless Vision'. Vision enabled through purpose, perception and empowered decision making.
