Journalist Tim Lennox (aka Robert Lennox Suggett) joined JOY in 1995 and has been a volunteer member of the news team ever since. As our News Director he encouraged and mentored scores of JOY news presenters, including many who have gone on to full-time print and electronic media careers.

Also, as a photographer, Tim has chronicled much of the progress of JOY, from its early days in studios above a hardware store in South Melbourne to its current modern City Village premises. In recognition of his unbroken service, the JOY Board christened Studio 2 used primarily for news broadcasts, as the ‘Tim Lennox Studio’ in 2011. Tim has hosted a number of JOY current affairs programs over the years and his voice is a familiar one among the many JOY news bulletins delivered each week.

Tim’s last news broadcast is Monday 12 noon April 8

Thank you Tim for 25 years of first class volunteering, best wishes from all at JOY !

Tim Lennox

Join Susannah, Fiona, Bec, Bree & Rachael and special guest comedian Tegan Higginbotham on JOY 94.9 @ 4:05 pm as the Chicks Talking Footy team broadcast live from Whitten Oval, Footscray this Sunday March 17, the 2019 AFLW Pride Game between the Bulldogs and Carlton.

Kick off 4:05 pm

This is the very special, annual AFLW Pride Game. Don’t miss the last game of the 2019 season, it’s going to be one of the best Sunday afternoons of footy, ever, with two iconic Melbourne teams, and their supporters, standing up for inclusion, change and recognition for the LGBTI community. It’s another way that the AFLW and their GenW campaign is working to empower girls and women from all backgrounds. Both teams will wear specially designed pride Guernseys.

Both teams will wear rainbow-themed Guernseys, and the 50-metre arc will be in rainbow colours, along with the goal umpire flags.

Carlton captain Brianna Davey and Bulldogs co-captain Katie Brennan were at Whitten Oval on Tuesday afternoon to reveal their respective Guernseys.

Bulldogs co-captain Katie Brennan said “The Pride Game is a fantastic concept, and as players we’re incredibly humbled to have the opportunity to be part of it. We saw what an impact the game had last year in supporting the LGBTIQ community. It was a very special night. As players we’re very proud of the way the Western Bulldogs have led the way when it comes to gender diversity and inclusiveness. We can’t wait for Sunday afternoon.” The Bulldogs’ Pride Game Guernsey was designed by Natalie Gills and features a rainbow pattern which complements the Club’s traditional strip. “The rainbow beams of pride emerging out from the Bulldogs’ hoops represent the strength and solidarity of the Club and its dedication to diversity and inclusion. This Guernsey highlights the platform that our AFLW players have to reach out and support every part of the community and, in particular, the LGBTIQ community.”

Carlton captain Brianna Davey said it was an honour to put on the Pride Guernsey and play in this historic game after missing last year’s match through injury. “Missing the pride game last year really hit home: for me personally, this game is huge. It touches me personally and is a big part of my life,’ Davey said. “For me it’s always about raising awareness as much as we can and letting people know that it’s okay to be you, no matter who you are or what you believe in. We embrace that and that’s exactly what the game this Sunday against the Western Bulldogs is all about.” The Carlton match-worn Guernseys will be auctioned off after the game via the Blues’ online auction site, with proceeds donated to LGBTIQ charity Minus18 the champions for LGBTIQ youth in Australia. The charity creates social change and mobilises community support through their identify-affirming youth-driven events, workshops, education resources and campaigns nationwide.

As they did last year, the two teams will run through a joint banner before the game in a show of unity.

Entry to the AFLW Pride Game is completely free, gates open 90 minutes before the first bounce.
