Sorry @SydneyCityTV. She has already shown that she is a very capable reporter with her reporting style (she has a lot of authority) with her time at the US Bureau and her recent presenting stints during Summer has certainly been impressive. I think she is someone who deserves a major role at the network, and I think most of us here would agree with this as well.
A great reporter who is overcoming her demons and hopefully will win her battle (with the drinking - and maybe even the court case)
I agree. However, an employer doesn't need to make an offer which is preferable for the employee. Seven argument is likely to be they offered her an alternative position, she turned it down.
You can't blame her though, who would want a 5am bulletin position! When she's been at the network in a more prominant position(s) for over a decade. A major step backwards & slap in the face
It doesn't necessarily have to be preferable but it has to be suitable. See below explanation. Take particular note of "hours of work"
Nat is back from holidays and co-hosting with Kochie, Eddy reading news and Ryan Phelan presenting sport this week.
Extended Sunrise to 10am on Australia Day 26 January.
Edit: Today is also extended.
Sunrise won week 2 by an average of 41,000 nationally including all markets except Sydney.
let me know when david koche resigns then i will return other wise # boycott sunrise:)
Kind of agree with you, Kochie has had his day now
Kochie really should've stepped aside when Mel did IMO.
However, I will say that him & Natalie Barr seem to work OK as co-presenters judging by what I saw of this morning's show. I'd still rather Sunrise be fronted by Nat & Berretts on a regular basis of course, but it did further reinforce my opinion that Nat really should've succeeded Mel instead of Sam.
The ratings would tend to disagree with your opinions. Sunrise's numbers went up when Mel left and Kochie stayed and stayed that way until someone messed with the studio and graphics last year.
And a fix of graphics would see them smash the competition for good. They should look at the American ABC news graphics for something contemporary and non-intrusive. Less clutter on screen, the better for viewers.
Sam has been away on holidays for a lot of weeks now?
Twelve straight wins - last week with their biggest margin outside the Olympics in over a year - I think they would be too scared to change anything very much at this stage of their comeback.
Sam is returning from holidays next week.
Mark Riley co-hosting with Eddy on Saturday"s special extended edition from 6am-10am AEDT.
Unlike previous years, Sunrise will be remain at Martin Place this year with a studio auidence.
