Offsiders is an Australian television sports program, that airs live on Sunday mornings at 10:00am on ABC TV and ABC News 24 networks (and is repeated on ABC2 on Mondays at 8am).

History[edit]

The show began airing in 2005 (alongside Insiders, its news/politics sister show which airs on ABC TV at 9am on Sunday mornings). The program was hosted by Barrie Cassidy from 2005 until December 2013 and aired at 10.30am.

In November 2013, it was announced that Gerard Whateley would replace Barrie Cassidy from 2014. The show has moved to a 10.00am start after this move.
