He also hosted the football programme on the local channel, WIN TV. A few years later, he took a job doing late evenings at Sydney station 2MMM. In January 2008, Maroon took on the role of anchor for the breakfast radio show The Shebang, and commentator of Triple M's Monday Night Football alongside Phil Gould and Jimmy Smith.
