Peter is known for his work in the media, with some 18 years as a commentator with ABC Grandstand. Midway through 2018 he published his memoir “Around the Grounds’’. The book chronicles Peter’s lifelong interest in sport and his career in broadcasting, while championing the characters and historical moments that make sport such a reflection of life itself.

Peter’s had numerous memorable experiences with ABC Grandstand, covering everything from international cricket to air pistol shooting on the outskirts of New Delhi. In doing so, he always gave the listener numerous perspectives and insights into life ‘one step away’ from the action, working with broadcasting legends and crossing paths with sporting greatness at regular intervals.

Peter’s lived in Hobart for twenty years and has always enjoyed getting involved in community activities with a view to helping the greater common good. His role as Membership Manager will combine his talents of telling compelling stories that engage people’s hearts and minds and that passion for making a difference on a local, human level.

Sharing in and encouraging the dreams and endeavours of our most disadvantaged is why so many join Tavs in support of creating sporting chances for deserved and inspiring youth. Look out for Peter’s signature style on future communications and a deeper insight to our activities and the needs and causes you can get involved with by attendance, donation or membership.
