Adrian Barich (born 5 December 1963) is a sports presenter for television and radio, and a former Australian rules footballer and rugby league player.


Perth Football Club

Barich played Australian Rules as a midfielder. He moved to Perth in 1983, signing with the Perth Football Club and going on to play 160 games for the team. He captained the side for two seasons, and is a life member of the club.

West Coast Eagles

Barich was an inaugural member of the West Coast Eagles Football Club and played in their historic first game in 1987. In his 47 games, Barich proved to be a robust midfielder. His place in West Coast Eagles history was forged more for his off-field role in the 1992 premiership. After missing selection in the team, he and Phil Scott, another inaugural player, penned a moving letter to those players selected to represent the club, letting their teammates know how much victory would mean to those who could not play and what it meant to those players who had been involved from club infancy.

Representative Sides

Barich played State of Origin football for New South Wales as well as representing Western Australia three times, captaining them in 1993.

Western Reds

In 1995 he joined WA's newly formed Australian Rugby League club, the Western Reds and played for two seasons. However, he did not make a first grade appearance. [ [ Western Force forums] ]


Channel 7 Perth

Since 1995 Adrian Barich has been a television sports reporter Channel 7 Perth. When Channel 7 had the AFL broadcast rights he was a boundary rider for matches at Subiaco Oval, during this period he was also a regular on Basil's Footy Show. Over summer he presents sport during the weekend news as well as filling in for the sports presenters during the year. He permanently became the weekend sports presenter in late September following former sports presenter and colleague Chris Mainwaring's shock death.


Since 2001 Barich commenced work for radio station 882 6PR, firstly pairing with Basil Zempilas to host the Breakfast Program, and two and a half years later on the evening "Sports Today", hosting it together with Brad Hardie. In mid 2006 "Sports Today" was revamped and called "Sports Central". Barich with Karl Langdon, and on some days Brad Hardie and Glen Jakovich, broadcast the show to Perth and some regional listeners.

In 2006 Barich also covered the Western Force's Super 14's matches on 6PR.

He also is famous for saying "thank you very much", "gornski" and pronounces numbers like Lou Richard.

In addition to 6PR. Barich also presents the Saturday Morning Sports Show on the Spirit Network with Troy Stockden and Scott Coghlan in selected regional areas of WA.
