No Todd Sampson in the season finale.
He wasn’t on the show last week either. Dee Madigan filled in for him.
Nice to see Russel Howcroft appearing at the ABC Sydney studios for the final episode of the year, after having to cross from Melbourne for most of this season, due to the closure of NSW-VIC border.
Dee filling in again this week.
From the pre-recorded clip, it looks like Todd had to skip the shows because he was a Covid close contact.

Interesting 8pm timeslot a change from usual.
Russel Howcroft is again absent from tonight’s Gruen Nation special, even though he returned to 3AW breakfast on Monday.
From home I think.
Was expecting a 3rd Gruen special .
Edited seems only 2 then a break? Then the new normal Gruen starts tomorrow …
Yes. There were teo Gruen Nation specials for the election and now we’re back to regular Gruen as originally scheduled.
Wil Anderson confirmed that half of the production team was not available for the first episode of Gruen Nation election special due to COVID.
