Today


#7257

Shane Crawford was on Studio 10 this morning ,and Sarah asked what’s next he said hopefully more tv work. Sarah said rumours we’ve heard that you could getting up very early for a tv gig…he said lots of rumours l don’t like getting up too early we will just wait and see my heart is not telling me yes so l need to have a good think about it this week he said.
It defintely sounded like the rumours are true and he has been offered the gig (sports presenter) and is now thinking about it.

Brenton also doing Adelaide News tonight.


#7259

I also saw that this morning on Studio 10. So Defnitely Crawford will be waking up with TODAY


#7260

Well, they want him to but it sounds like he hasn’t committed to it. If he already had the gig, why wouldn’t he just say so?


#7261

#7262

Despite saying this he did add l need to have a good think about it this week .


#7263

Maybe he has been offered a role on 10 Early/Morning News as Sports Presenter?? :thinking::thinking::thinking:


#7264

Doubt it. He’s just saying that’s the sort of time he wakes up in the morning. 8.30am rather than 5am.


#7265

ie offer me more money.

Brenton’s presenting style is interesting. His “newsreader voice” quickly disappears when talking about something personal or relatable.


#7268

Am I the only one who gets really pissed off with his “newsreader voice”. Every presenter in the country seems to get theirs right (whether or not its good is another story) but his has always just sounded so fake.


#7269

Yep. Tuned in for a couple of minutes this morning, listened, felt sorry for Adelaide viewers who’ve suffered through his awful delivery for years, then turned back to News Breakfast.


#7271

Bretonton was great. Much better than Tom. Sad he wasn’t offered.


#7272

Haven’t heard of this guy before :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


#7273

He made it clear he wasn’t interested.


#7274

Thought he said on Adelaide radio that he wasn’t offered?

“I expressed my thoughts about the whole thing but there was no formal offer. There’s never actually been any formal offer,” he explained.

we were quite comfortable if they came back and said thanks but no thanks… which they did“

Sounds to me like he was open to it had he been offered.


#7275

Don’t agree at all.

His comments indicate quite clearly that he didn’t want the job and was grateful not to have to turn it down. Nine respected his desire to stay in Adelaide and in a relatively low-profile role so didn’t waste their time drawing up contracts and making a “formal” offer but that doesn’t mean they didn’t ask “do you want the job”.


#7276

He says the came back to him and said thanks but no thanks - and he was happy enough with that.


#7277

Tom is back this morning.
