Controversial AFL writer and presenter Mark Robinson appears to have parted ways with SEN radio.
Mark Robinson gone?
Former Demons star David Schwarz who was himself dumped by SEN late last year has sent a tweet saying Robbo has also been “sacked”.
“After 13 years SEN management sacked Mark Robinson today. It’s obviously got something to do with The Run Home. Their loss, onwards and upwards.”
At this stage there has been no official confirmation of Robbo’s departure.

If Ox’s tweet is correct it is safe to say former Demon James Magner will not be missing Robbo too much.
No it’s probably more the fact that he is a fuckwit.. no one likes him and he has zero respect in the industry. Start there… love ya OX!

However Schwarz and Robbo who hosted segments of “The Run Home” together last year are understood to be good mates. So it would be surprising if Schwarz wasn’t telling the truth.
Lots of changes
SEN have made plenty of changes on and off the mic lately since Crocmedia’s Craig Hutchison became majority shareholder and chief executive.
David Schwarz, Hamish Mclachlan, Mark Allen and Francis Leach will all be departing. Andy Maher will be taking over the midday time slot whilst station legend Kevin Bartlett will reportedly be moved to drive.
The biggest signing though is Gerard Whateley who will be moving across from the ABC to spearhead SEN’s footy commentary.
There are also rumours that Caroline Wilson may also take up a role at the station this year.
