Don Burke is back in talks with Channel Nine, just nine months after he last appeared on the network.
Burke’s seasonal specials last aired in March, but the format was dropped by Nine mid year, as revealed exclusively on TV Tonight. At the time Burke said, “the welcome mat is out and the door is open for discussion.”
This week he has indicated just that, to News Limited, saying he still lamented the axing of Burke’s Backyard.
“Honestly I thought it was a foolish decision on behalf of Channel 9,” said Burke, who helmed Burke’s Backyard for 17 years.
“But I am talking to them at the moment, so who knows?
“There might be something new there. So far we’re just looking at some options so we’ll see what happens.”
