Interesting read from 2011. The show was averaging 31,000 viewers.
Wow, the article says that the show doubled its audience when it moved to ABC1 so to think of it rating half of that on ABC2 is crazy that they stuck with it, but a credit to them at the sane time.
One of Michael Rowland’s finest moments:
Sorry, couldn’t resist!
But in all seriousness, congratulations to him on a decade of presenting News Breakfast!
Amazing growth for the show.
Friday (12.06.2020): Madeline Morris is co-hosting with Michael today.
The equivalent day last year Sunrise was closer to 300k, Today was getting 200k and News Breakfast 150k
Looking at that its clear News breakfast is now having an affect on both Sunrise and Today.
