It's a fine line between
your fave personalities
Are there two more polarising TV
personalities than David Koch and
Karl Stefanovic? I can't remember
either one of them ever doing
anything particularly outrageous
or controversial, but for some
reason we all have a strong
opinion about who is better.
I can remember the exact
moment in 2009 I switched from
Sunrise to Today and never went
back. Kochie was reporting from
the Victorian bushfires and
wearing an Akubra with a Driza-
Bone. Now, I know this is a
ridiculous reason for abandoning
an entire show, but the fact that I
could have been watching a scene
from The Man From Snowy River
seemed ridiculous. Being Kochie, it
would have been The Man From
Snowy River's Accountant,of
Fortunately, at the moment I
switched Karl wasn't participating
in a car park Segway race and I
connected with a compassionate,
genuine, experienced journalist.
The relationship has grown from
It seems ridiculous, but when
our decisions are influenced by
such miniscule moments, it shows
how closely matched our
breakfast TV alternatives are.
Don't think I've forgotten about
co-hosts Lisa Wilkinson and
Samantha Armytage, but in any
team there has to be one
personality who's bigger and on
both shows it's the boys (though
not on the Kristen & Rod show!).

The Craft and Design Centre presented Embracing
Innovation Volume 4 last week. The exhibition
showcased innovation in the creative arts, with a
particular focus on craft and design. Craft
practitioners and designers demonstrated their
embrace of digital technologies, research and design
thinking. It was a powerful exhibit for makers
exploring these new areas of practice. Works from a
select group of artists and researchers from leading
Australian and international institutions were on
display for all to appreciate.
I wake up with Sunrise. In fact, if
I roll over to see Karl and Lisa
smiling at me through the telly
and having a laugh on the
Today show I feel guilty -- dirty
even. To the point that I begin to
wonder how I'm going to break
the news to Kochie and Sam
that I've cheated.
Funny, isn't it, how these
personalities become part of
your day-to-day routine. You
share breakfast, they give you
the heads up on what's
happening and you feel like
they're part of the family.
Who doesn't love the Cash Cow?
He exists to dance, make you
smile and then give you money.
The poor thing needs to take
baths more often, but, usually,
he's a lot of fun.
As for Kochie, boy, doesn't he
love a good finance graph? And
he is the king of dorky dad jokes.
My relationship with Sunrise has
not been all smooth sailing. I
was a Mel Doyle fan, so when
Sam started in the main chair it
was an adjustment.
But she has sass and it means
Mel is back in Canberra more
often to see her beloved GWS
Giants get up. So, it's a win-win
really. Sure, Karl is a cack, but
my loyalty is with Sam and
Kochie. It always has been.
