Are TV3 in shell shock or denial? Their web site still proudly claims Rachel Smalley as anchoring Firstline, even though she’s been warming a seat at Newstalk ZB for a while now.
Smalley’s departure has left TV3 in a bit of a pickle.
Never having had the audience figures, nor the respect that TVNZ’s Breakfast enjoys, at least Smalley had made serious inroads into the company’s breakfast TV ambitions.
Hard working, smart and ambitious, her departure is a huge loss to Mediaworks.
