Rove from the heart
Rove told the Herald-Sun how he had considered calling his TV career quits, admitting the time “off the treadmill” made him ponder whether he wanted a return to commercial television.
He spoke candidly about Belle as his inspiration and his plans to release the album of songs she was working on last year. He described her as an inspiration and a fighter.
Tonight Rove returns to TEN in a new night, new timeslot, new studio, new title change (the “Live” is dropped) and new regulars including Hamish and Andy and Dave Hughes. Launched in the non-ratings Easter period, TEN is giving the new format every chance, but has stated they expect Sunday variety to be a gradual shift for viewers.
He told the Herald-Sun he was re-energised, saying, “Obviously I have had the time that I needed. I have thought about it and I do want to be back and I know it is something that she would want me to do,” he said.
He also spoke candidly to the Sydney Morning Herald.
