    I like Heather du Plessis-Allan but not on Story. Find her quite irritating lately, has she been told to act like an idiot? Tonight after a mental health story : “I love cats, that man had a beautiful cat” & the inane giggling! What has happened to her ?!

    wonder who they’ll get to replace Sean Plunket ? apparently looking at Sainsbury, yawn, put HDPA in there. maybe she’d be less annoying on radio lol

        Mark Sainsbury is a nice man. Sean Plunket has been doing talkback radio for too long and is bitter because of it. They might give Alison Mau her own show. I liked it when Jay Jay Harvey co-hosted talkback with Alison once – she sounds happy and positive and would be interesting. But she’s way too fun to ever do that job.

      Oh my goodness she’d be dire on talkback radio! She’s weird. And I hope for her sake she never finds herself suffering from mental illness – I do, and I wouldn’t wish it on anyone. She looks stoned half the time she’s on TV. She’s also rough. TV needs nice polished people not rough cheap and nasty looking ‘presenters’ who bring nothing to the table.
