They both really need to pull their heads in and shut up. Nobody cares about their petty squabbling right now. Stop it.

Jim Wilson said on the Sydney afternoon news that he will be appearing on Weekend Sunrise this weekend, presumably because Simon Reeve has been locked in his home state of Queensland.

I would expect this to be the case for at least 3-6 months while Queensland’s borders are locked to the outside, unless Reeve can somehow get an exemption from these travel bans.

James Tobin will probably be presenting weather from his home again this weekend.

I understood Reeve flew from the Gold Coast but actually residing in NSW (Tweed Coast).

Or (if he is actually in Queensland) he could join the show from either the GC or Brisbane studios…

If this is the case it would have to be from the Gold Coast studio. Or then he could present on location like he did from the Gold Coast in November 2011, when it was announced they had won the rights to host the 2018 Commonwealth Games.

In a few weeks they may not need a sports presenter for a while.
