Andrew Voss (born 7 September 1966[citation needed]) is an Australian rugby league commentator who currently works for Fox Sports Australia.

Voss previously worked for the SKY Network Television as a commentator, and at the Nine Network, including on the NRL Footy Show, The Sunday Footy Show and The Sunday Roast.

Career[edit]

Voss has hosted several of Nine Network's rugby league-related TV shows. He began appearing on The Footy Show in 1997[citation needed] as a regular guest, starring in different sketches and in group discussions.

In 2002, he became host of Boots N' All (until its cancellation in 2006), and following that The Sunday Roast until 2011. In this time, he was the Nine's Network's number-two rugby league caller behind Ray Warren. In 2012 he was demoted to the number three caller behind Ray Hadley. This occurred after Hadley strongly criticised Voss for questioning the likeness of a statue of Warren erected in Warren's home town of Junee, New South Wales. Voss then sued Hadley for defamation, but the matter was settled before it went to court.[1] It was revealed in 2011 that Voss had had a long running feud with Hadley since 1994 when they both worked at Sydney radio station 2UE. [2]

Voss has covered various other sporting events, including the Sydney Olympic Games, Melbourne Commonwealth Games and the Vancouver Winter Olympic Games. He travelled to London in 2012 to cover the 2012 Summer Olympics.

In 2006, Voss was the voice of the ice on Torvill and Dean's Dancing on Ice, while in 2009 he was fill-in presenter on the Nine Network's Today between Mondays and Thursdays, in addition to presenting every Friday in place of Cameron Williams.[citation needed]

Also in 2009, Voss hosted Australia's Greatest Athlete for the Nine Network, a program which screened on Saturday afternoons.

He joined UK Premier Sports as the lead commentator for their coverage of the 2013 Rugby League World Cup, telecast in Australia on 7mate. In 2013 he called the New Zealand Warriors games for Sky Sport in New Zealand.[3]
