I think he has been a bit of a misfit. Tom was a great 60 Mins reporter and, in turn, you would assume that he would be capable of OBs for rolling/special coverage. However, on the both occasions he has done so, he has struggled.
I hate to compare him to the former team but Sylvia’s strength was on the road (and that is not even including Karl or Lisa). Tom seems out of his depth at the desk and hosting event coverage.
