Eddie McGuire (AM)
Eddie McGuire is one of television's most familiar faces, a passionate and devoted Collingwood football fan and a huge target for everything he does.
Edward "Eddie"Joseph McGuire was born on 29th October 1964 in Melbourne and grew up in Broadmeadows.
He has also been a journalist, sports broadcaster, television game show host, and businessman. Before his time as CEO, he was well known for hosting the game show Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? and the AFL Footy Show.
Eddie began his media career at age 14 as a football statistician with the Herald Newspaper. He joined Australian Associated Press as a cricket writer until 1982 when he joined Network Ten as a sports reporter for Ten Eyewitness News.
In 1998 Eddie presented the sports report for Triple M radio, before compering the top rating quiz show 'Who wants to be a Millionaire?' on the Nine network.
In the Queen's Birthday 2005 Honours List the Australian Government saw fit to appoint Eddie McGuire as a Member in the General Division of The Order of Australia.
Anyone who knows Eddie, knows he is a family man, one-eyed about his Magpies and despite an incredibly busy schedule has time for everyone including many charities and the Trevor Barker Foundation.
Eddie, the man with the biggest hat rack in Melbourne is unfairly remembered for boning but is there any better television host or master of ceremonies in Australia today, we don't think so?
