Joseph "Joppy" Price - the sports fan and Journo, landed in Townsville early 2020, itching to get into club footy in the city.
Born and raised on the Sunshine Coast Joppy grew up loving sport and the beach. He played for the Coolum Colts Rugby League team for 14 years, with stints playing soccer, AFL, rugby union and cricket along the way.
Shortly after finishing his Journalism Degree at USC in 2019, Joppy moved to Townsville to become a newsreader at Star 106.3 and POWER100 at the beginning of 2020.
Since then, he has swapped his surfboard for a fishing rod and his love of sport has made me feel at home in the North. Joppy is gearing up for the Townsville Brothers Rugby League team this year and can't wait to immerse himself in the amazing sporting community we have here.
The Sideline View isn't a traditional sports show, it isn't 100% focused on the national leagues like The Wallabies, WNRL, NRL, AFL, WAFL, NBL, BBL, The Australian Cricket Team or Super Netball. Instead, it will provide score updates, exclusive interviews and live coverage of all local sports happening in Townsville.
This uniquely local show will engage the local sporting communities by making the content all about them and highlighting our local stars as well as keeping you up to date with the national scores and news.
Join Joppy Price from 12pm Saturday afternoon on POWER100.
