The KAKster had been feeling underwhelmed by Nine, rumoured to not even have any business cards. But the network has kissed and made-up. They love her. They honestly love her. And they are very sure they control the future.
The Queen of Australian daytime television will reign for another three years following a new agreement signed between Kerri-Anne Kennerley and Channel Nine.
Nine Network Chief Executive, Mr Eddie McGuire, said he was delighted that Kerri-Anne had re-signed with the network as presenter and co-producer of the hugely successful Mornings with Kerri-Anne.
“Kerri-Anne has just completed four years with the Network and she has the number one show in mornings. We are all very proud of what she has achieved and what she brings to the Network.
“Kerri-Anne has made morning television her own and is one of Nine’s brightest stars. I am very pleased that the strong relationship will continue,” Mr McGuire said.
Kerri-Anne said she was very pleased to be offered a new contract and thrilled to continue presenting Mornings with Kerri-Anne.
“I love morning television and I think we provide a real mixture of information, discussion, humour and product information,” she said.
“Over my many years broadcasting I have been fortunate to have met and interviewed all manner of people from Australian Prime Ministers, union leaders, corporate leaders as well as everyday folk
who have simply made a difference. I am very much at home here at Nine and plan to continue here for many years to come.”
Since its premiere in 2002, Mornings with Kerri-Anne has brought viewers to morning television and is consistently number one in its timeslot across Australia. In 2007 the program will celebrate 1000 episodes.
