Nine is set to reveal the team to cover next month’s wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. According to the Herald Sun, Georgie Gardner and Karl Stefanovic will host the telecast, with Allison Langdon, Laura Turner, Michael Best and Seb Costello as reporters.
I wonder if The Chaser can commentate this time.

Good to see Nine managed to incorporate the ‘un’ hattrick (unprecedented, unrivalled and unparalleled) into that press release…
Do you think they will host the coverage from the UK?
Spew. No thanks
According to Mediaweek, UKTV will relay BBC’s live and uninterrupted coverage of the wedding and procession.
I think they will be right there, as close to Windsor Castle as they can be.
Hot tip on how to better enjoy this topic
UKTV coverage. The wedding is at 9:00pm AEST.
The SMH reporting that Ten is apparently sending Lisa Wilkinson and Angela Bishop to cover the wedding, which has disappointed Ita Buttrose as she assumed she would be going.
Melissa Doyle will front Seven’s coverage with other details not yet know.
Is this nicely timed so Ita Buttrose can be in London for Nine’s coverage in a few weeks, I wonder?
If all the networks are covering the royal wedding why is nine claiming to be the “home of the royal wedding”
I would be surprised if Ten have rolling coverage of it. I only expect them to put pieces into their news & current affairs program. Like Ten News and The Project.
The Wedding Project could be a good working name but I’m not holding my breath
Did 10 covered Wills and Kate wedding in 2011
Yes they covered it.
They’ll whack it on as well as it’s a Saturday night and doesn’t cost anything to put the pool stream on.
You wouldn’t really understand how royal weddings are covered over the many many years so stop making assumptions.
It’s following on from them claiming the same thing for Prince William & Catherine’s wedding in 2011:
It’s stupid as there’s no exclusivity. All the networks covered it back then and they’ll all do the same again. Bullshit hyperbole from nine.
