Sunrise


#5123

Basil just said “see you next Saturday” in Qld… so they must be off tomorrow.


#5124

Weren’t there rumours that Kochie and Sam or at least one of them are back tomorrow to “beat” the new Today team on by a week?


#5125

I think it was suggested in here, that’s all.


#5126

Ah, I see. Well I guess it’s confirmed then. :stuck_out_tongue:


#5127

@spw68 asked the question do we think Kochie and Sam would be back because the Cash Cow (promo aired) is back on Monday and to back on air before the new team start on Today on Monday 14 January.


#5128

I don’t think Sunrise have anything to worry about at the moment.

A potential ratings increase for Today won’t happen overnight anyway.

Would be silly to bring them back early for that reason.

Back to Perth with he’s wife an he’s 3 kids
Who have been in Sydney the last 11 days


#5130

Seems incredibly early :thinking:

Matt’s Response on Twitter
I’m up early to do LIVE crosses to the East Coast and produce the Perth News before I’m on in Perth at 7am


#5132

Matt Doran hosting with Edwina Bartholomew this week.
Angie Asimus reading news with Nathan Templeton presenting sport and Sam Mac presenting weather.


#5133

Are some of Sunrise’s transitions new?
I thought the sun rays used during the 9am news headlines and the purple horizontal bars in the entertainment segment after 9am looked different.
Also during the hot cross bun story just before 9, the orange and then blue horizontal bars looked new.
But maybe I’ve just not noticed them before…


#5134

I saw the generic orange transitions used today. They were not used when I was watching last week or on Saturday.


#5135

Maybe they’re trying a few new things to freshen up for the new year…


#5136

They’re actually really good. Would love them to try something like this for the Opener instead of the Blue titlecard.


#5137

There was orange at the beginning of the hot cross buns story and blue at the end. Purple for the entertainment segment.


#5138

Sam, Kochie, Nat and Beretts all return on Monday to join Eddy and Sam Mac


#5139

Wow, they are pulling out all the stops aren’t they. The breakfast war begins…


#5140

I would imagine they where going to be back next Monday regardless what was going on at 9


#5141

I disagree. The whole team is never back this early.


#5142

They always used to be back this early, in my memory anyway. For the Aus Open. and they always tend to be on air longer and away during the year.

You can’t just change people annual leave on pre arranged dates. I would expect what is unusual however is the bigger promotional push they are receiving.
