Early media career

Born in Melbourne and growing up in the working-class outer suburb of Broadmeadows, McGuire is the son of a Scottish coal miner and Irish farm girl who arrived in Melbourne in 1958. He and older brother Frank McGuire both won scholarships to Christian Brothers College, St. Kilda East. Frank McGuire, who worked as a newspaper sports reporter, got Eddie his first job in the media as an Australian rules football statistician and cricket reporter for The Herald (1978 - 1982). Later he became a cadet sports reporter for Network Ten, and then transferred in 1993 to Kerry Packer's Nine Network, where he became the host of a sports variety program, The AFL Footy Show. The AFL Footy Show has been a high-profile success, consistently leading ratings in its timeslot over a sustained period.

1999 onwards

McGuire's television high point may have been his hosting of the 2003 Logie Awards, an Australia TV annual awards show broadcast live across Australia. His performance was well received and McGuire was subsequently invited back to host the ceremony in 2004 and 2005. The 45th Annual TV Week Logie Awards were presented on Sunday 11 May 2003 at Crown Casino in Melbourne and broadcast on the Nine Network. ...


McGuire served as a football radio caller at Triple M, a station that had previously concentrated on wall-to-wall rock music.

On 29 October 1998 he was elected by the vote of the members as president of Collingwood Football Club, a powerful Australian rules football club which was then in financial and on-field difficulties. Under his stewardship the club has maintained its high profile in the sport and has increased its financial reserves. Results on the field have been mixed, with McGuire leading Collingwood to the wooden spoon (last position, 16th) in his first year in charge, but then to losing grand-finalist to the Brisbane Lions in 2002 & 2003. The average position for Collingwood on the AFL league ladder during his 8 years in charge has been 10th (16th, 15th, 9th, 4th, 2nd, 13th, 15th, then 5th in 2006). is the 302nd day of the year (303rd in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Football media

When the Nine Network took over the rights to broadcast some AFL games in 2002 (after years of being denied access to footage), McGuire became host of the Friday night TV coverage. This became controversial when fellow broadcaster Tim Lane, a long-time ABC chief radio caller, was also recruited by Nine but with a proviso in his contract that he would not have to call Collingwood games with McGuire. Lane believed that McGuire, as the club president, would be seen as less than objective and he didn't want to be associated with the conflict of interest. McGuire defended his professionalism and insisted that he call all Friday night games; Lane resigned and Nine paid out his contract.[citation needed] Timothy Tim Lane (born 1951 in Launceston, Tasmania) is an Australian journalist and sports commentator. ... The Australian Broadcasting Corporation or ABC is Australias national non-profit public broadcaster. ...


Despite Lane's resignation, Friday Night Football proved a huge success for Channel Nine, in no small part due to the presence of, in his own words, "the biggest name on the Nine Network", McGuire himself. [1] McGuire also claimed that a recent decline in ratings for Friday night telecasts was partly because "I didn't do football this year." [2]


McGuire's business activities include TipStar, a failed commercial "footy tipping" game and, more lucratively, a production company (McGuire Media, founded 1997). His business activities are conducted in partnership with his brother, Frank McGuire, who is a former journalist. Footy tipping is a competition where competitors try to predict the winning teams in a round of games played each round during (usually) the home and away season of a sport. ...

He is married to Carla McGuire (née Galloway) and has two sons, Joseph and Alexander. He serves on many boards of companies and charities in Melbourne.


Controversies

During a match between the Brisbane Lions and St Kilda, McGuire claimed that several Lions defenders had unfairly targeted Saints' captain Nick Riewoldt's shoulder after he injured it going for a mark.[3] The Lions' coach Leigh Matthews then slammed McGuire for using such language whilst recapping the Riewoldt incident.[1] There has since been calls for McGuire to be banned from calling Lions games, but, as of 2006, he is no longer commentating any form of AFL. McGuire was also routinely criticised for one sided commentary, particularly when his team Collingwood was involved[citation needed]. It has been suggested that The pride of brisbane town be merged into this article or section. ...

CEO of the Nine Network

On 9 February 2006 it was announced that McGuire would become the new CEO of the Nine Network,[2] filling a vacancy created by the departure of David Gyngell in May 2005.[3] McGuire has had to sacrifice his on-air commitments including hosting The AFL Footy Show and Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?, as well as AFL commentry, for what turned out to be a very short term tenure. is the 40th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar. ...

According to Business Review Weekly McGuire's on-air salary was $3.5 million a year. Gyngell had earned $1.1 million a year by comparison.

In May 2006, McGuire travelled to Beaconsfield, Tasmania to rally Nine News reporters covering the mine collapse. On 9 May McGuire was seen on A Current Affair at the Beaconsfield Pub enjoying a Jim Beam and Coke with mine survivor Todd Russell. Having just shouted all in attendance at the pub free drinks Eddie announced a concert for the town that was partially televised on the Nine Network on 11 May. The show performed well in ratings and helped Nine win that week in the ratings.[citation needed] Location of Beaconsfield Beaconsfield is a town near the Tamar River, in the north-east of Tasmania, Australia. ...

McGuire came out of on-air retirement to host the event, which was broadcast as part of The Footy Show (both versions). It is rumoured he was in Beaconsfield to personally negotiate an exclusive deal with the miners to tell their story to PBL media outlets. If successful a story of this magnitude could give McGuire's network a much needed profile boost. He got both Todd and Brant for around $2 million when Channel 7 pulled out of the bidding. The interview, titled "The Great Escape", was shown on Channel 9 on 21 May 2006 and scored a huge 2.8 million viewers across Australia.[citation needed] As well as giving Nine a much needed boost to its overall ratings the telecast was also seen by many media commentators as boosting Nine's News Hour ratings which until then had been lagging behind rival Channel 7's.[citation needed] May 21 is the 141st day of the year (142nd in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ... Year 2006 (MMVI) was a common year starting on Sunday (link displays full 2006 calendar) of the Gregorian calendar. ...


McGuire also hosted a special edition of The Footy Show live from Munich on 18 June 2006, several hours before Australia were due to face Brazil in the 2006 FIFA World Cup. The telecast scored 1.3 million viewers over three hours and won Nine the night in the ratings.[citation needed] For other uses, see Munich (disambiguation). ... is the 169th day of the year (170th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Qualifying countries The 2006 FIFA World Cup was the eighteenth instance of the FIFA World Cup, the quadrennial international association football world championship tournament. ...


Before leaving for the Munich edition of The Footy Show he announced the elimination of 100 jobs, most in news and current affairs. Despite a vigorous publicity campaign by the CEO these cost-cutting measures severely damaged morale at the network.[4] On one program McGuire's required job-cuts exceeded the actual number of employees. This raised questions in both the media and within Channel 9 itself about the competence of Nine's executives.[5]


The troubles worsened when an affidavit written by a Channel 9 executive affected by the purges was leaked to the press and Nine failed in its attempts to suppress it (download the Mark Llewellyn affidavit). It contained damaging allegations regarding McGuire's treatment of employees. The document's author, Mark Llewellyn (previous head of news and current affairs who has since found work at Channel 7), claimed that McGuire and his staff had told him that he would be forced to "eat a shit sandwich" (accept a dramatic pay-cut). He also recalled conversations with McGuire where the CEO had spoken of wanting to "bone" (fire) Jessica Rowe, co-host of the network's Today show. Following these allegations McGuire guaranteed Rowe her position on the program.[6] McGuire has strongly denied the allegations. Many believe[citation needed] Llewellyn was simply angered at being forced out of Nine and made up the allegations to take attention away from Nine's poor News ratings while he was News Director. On 6 May 2007, Llewellyn's position was vindicated when it was announced that Jessica Rowe would not be returning to Channel 9.[5] Jessica Rowe (born 1970) is an Australian television journalist and presenter. ... Today is an Australian morning television program broadcast weekdays from 6am on the Nine Network. ...


On 1 September 2006 it was announced that Nine had lost Jana Wendt, despite McGuire's earlier claims that he would ensure she stayed at the network though not as presenter of Sunday. Wendt's move also contradicted reports in some media citing Nine sources who had suggested the high-profile journalist would return to 60 Minutes.

McGuire's decision to force Wendt off the Sunday program backfired with the relaunch of the show on 3 September 2006. The Nine Network's switchboard was flooded with an unprecedented number of calls complaining about the new format and hosts.[7] is the 246th day of the year (247th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ... Year 2006 (MMVI) was a common year starting on Sunday (link displays full 2006 calendar) of the Gregorian calendar. ...


This episode was considered by many in the media as a failure by the 'P-plated CEO' (a term coined by Sydney tabloids) to manage the network in a professional and ethical manner. It also fuelled speculation as to his longevity in his position as CEO of Nine.[8]


James Packer (head of Nine's parent company, PBL) has been keen to publicly reaffirm his support for McGuire despite the network's increasing vulnerability in the ratings. He and others who have publicly supported McGuire claim that the CEO has been the victim of a media 'smear campaign'.


Despite unprecedented media criticism Channel 9 still managed to win the 2006 ratings despite rival Channel 7 having hits such as Dancing with the Stars, Desperate Housewives, Lost and Grey's Anatomy. Nine's strong news hour on the east coast, its strong Sunday nights and high rating NRL coverage is thought to have got Nine over the line. PBL and Nine executives were eager to expose victory in the 2006 ratings war with Channel 7, paying for a half-page advertisements in national newspapers reaffirming their 'No. 1' status.[citation needed] Dancing with the Stars is an Australian television series based on the British Strictly Come Dancing. ...

In January 2007 McGuire returned to the TV screen, hosting the Australian version of the quiz show, 1 vs. 100.

On 18 May 2007, McGuire announced he would be "resigning" as CEO of the Nine network, and would be taking on a new position in programming services, as well as more on-screen roles[6] He officially resigned as CEO on June 30, 2007.
