About Rex

Rex Hunt was born Port Phillip Bay in 1949. He developed a love of the ocean from a young age, fishing from age 7. Although Rex recalls being the last picked at cricket and football in the school yard, he quickly developed in his teens.

Playing in 202 VFL games for Geelong, Richmond and St Kilda football clubs, he played in two premierships with Richmond. A noted goal kicker, he topped Richmond’s goal kicking twice and was the VFA’s leading goal-kicker in 1981 with 110 goals.

Since retiring from football Rex forged a career in fishing and football broadcasting. He began commentating in 1979 and would quickly become known as the ‘Number 1’ radio broadcaster for football on 3AM with his highly entertaining and colourful calls. Through his clever player nicknames and ‘Rexisms’ he developed a unique style which won him many awards.

Rex pioneered fishing in the media. The Rex Hunt Fishing Show debuted on radio 3DB in 1982 and continued until the end of 2009. In 1992 the Seven Network began the broadcast in Melbourne of Rex Hunt’s Fishing World. His following grew and he enjoyed 12 years of Australian and international broadcast success.

Dedicated to conservation, Rex was instrumental in a campaign to remove Scallop dredge boats from Port Phillip Bay leading to drastic improvements to local angling. Rex later founded the Rex Hunt Future Fish Foundation in 1999. Rex has single-handedly changed public views on releasing unwanted fish through his famous ‘fish kissing’ and promotion of fishing for the future.
