Lachy is an accomplished commentator on various sports on television and radio, commentating for NBL Basketball and Swimming on Network Ten.

He was a part of the station's Winter Olympics coverage in Sochi, commentating alongside Olympians Steven Bradbury and Steven Lee.

Lachy called all heats and finals of the Swimming at the Glasgow Commonwealth Games in 2014, with expert commentator Nicole Livingston for Channel 10's live and exclusive coverage. He also called Michael Phelps' return to swimming at the 2014 Pan Pacs on the Gold Coast.

Lachy also calls AFL and WAFL on ABC radio.

Renowned for his live comparing, he has made a name for himself as courtside announcer in over 10 seasons for the Perth Wildcats, whilst adding to his ever-growing MC portfolio.

Lachy Reid will bring, humour, enthusiasm and second-to-none professionalism to any event.
