What a mess. Make Bridget/Emma the main co-host with the other on news. If Tony can’t do sport then it’s Cath Murphy. She’s not there? no sport reader.
Most importantly, Lisa can do “other projects”.
I’m not sure how replacing Lisa with someone who works fewer days than her helps? Lisa is on holidays at the moment, after working most of December.
They just need some leadership to say ‘this is your job, and you need to be here to do it’
News Breakfast unexpectedly finished early this morning after a building fire alarm. Went to ads then News Channel studio started early…
The ABC offers their Breakfast presenters (Lisa and Tony) opportunities to pursue other presenting opportunities with the broadcaster. If they had such as problem with it, I doubt they’d be offered in the first place.
The way it is is talked about is that these presenters are just willy nilly doing whatever they want and management just allow it. I’m sure there are discussions and meetings about availability, holidays etc.
I don’t disagree that there should be a bit more stability with the presenting roster, but simply saying they (assuming Lisa was inferred above) need to be there ain’t it.
Another smoking ceremony?
The gang’s all here!
Welcome back Lisa and @Tonaaayy_!!
News Breakfast on-air now on @ABCTV and iview. @abcnews
For ‘one morning only’: the actual News Breakfast team are together.
Tony looks happy.
He’s probably thinking ‘ahh day one back here, only 3 days til my next day off!’
