And not just regarding the presenters. The first segment before the break at 6.00 experienced several technical difficulties yesterday. At the start of the opener, AOK was talking out-of-turn before Nat began reading the headlines. He then was a few seconds behind Barr and stumbled a number of times leading me to believe the opener was done live. As the opener sequence played out, the Weekend Sunrise logo appeared in place of the Sunrise logo. And it kept on going. The V/O played over the top of Nat, Seven News ticker was underneath the Sunrise graphics forcing production to shut down the ticker etc. And during the news, the footage ran too short or too long and the wrong image appeared on the OTS. The 'C' team obviously was also in the control room too.
Have to agree. James Tobin, Emma Freedman and Nuala Hafner ( although I haven't seen her for a while) are far superior. Is why James rarely appears because he is still reportedly 'upset' about not getting the weekday gig after Grant left or doesn't Pell like him?
In terms of a relaunch, found this article randomly about a week ago: http://www.sunshinecoastdaily.com.au/news/breakfast-show-sunrise-get-makeover/2786757/
