At the age of three Lachy Reid began commentating cricket, basketball and footy games. Unfortunately the broadcasts never went to air but he still has the cassette tape as proof! Twenty years later he finally became a sports reporter.
Lachy’s media career began in radio whilst studying Broadcasting at Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA). He has completed more than a decade at Channel Ten Perth, in the role of senior AFL football Reporter/presenter and has won several awards for best news and feature stories, presented by the WA Football Commission and the National Basketball League.
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.
