Weekdays at 9am
Co-hosts Sarah Bradley and Brendon Pongia bring an extra hour of entertainment and information to screens when magazine-style show ‘Good Morning’ returns for 2007, now three hours each weekday morning.
‘Good Morning’ includes interviews and segments on the way we live now, including relationships, parenting and self development, gardening, cooking, money matters, movie, book, and arts reviews, and panel discussions.
Producer Sally Anne Kerr says increasing ‘Good Morning’ by a third is exciting; “We have a lot more new segments planned. We are looking at doing landscape gardening, giving more advice on relationships, more cooking demonstrations, consumer advice and exercise.” In all, she says, the extra time creates the opportunity to provide a lot of new material while still delivering the same treasured segments.
The show kicks off 2007 packed with a variety of guests including, Australian country music legend Jade Hurley; the loveable larrikin Leigh Hart; young adventurer James Blake talking about life on the ice in Antarctica, and comedian Lynda Topp, with her alter ego Ken, who will hook and cook a salmon – her outdoor skills can also be seen on the new TV ONE series ‘Ken’s Hunting And Fishing Show’.
‘Good Morning’ heats up Valentine’s Day with the SPCA’s animal adoption team, then it’s off to Matiu/Somes Island with DOC’s Nic Vallance, in search of tuatara and giant weta, and matchmaker Sasha Madaraz will quiz Brendon on his take on love and romance. The week rounds off with Bradley and Pongia chatting to Jayne Kylie from TV2’s ‘Mitre 10 Dream Home’, and retirement commissioner Diana Crossan with tips on getting the year sorted financially.
‘Good Morning’ is broadcast live from TVNZ’s Avalon Studios in Lower Hutt. Website: www.tvnz.co.nz , keywords: Good Morning.
