Weekend Sunrise wakes up to Today’s alarm
Rise and shine! The battle for Sunday morning heats up as Sunrise matches Today's 7am start.
Here we go again.
Morning television shows, specifically two of them, just hate it when the other guy gets a jump start.
Nine’s new Sunday version of the Today show with Leila McKinnon and Cameron Williams begins this Sunday morning.
Airing at 7am, it has a half hour head start on the traditional 7:30am start time of Seven’s Weekend Sunrise, hosted by Andrew O’Keefe and Samantha Armytage.
So Seven just announced it’s moving back to 7am too.
Not so long ago there was a similar scheduling battle over the shows’ weekday versions and early News, along with an earlier start for the now-deceased Sunday.
It was so early that Ray Martin didn’t want to get up for it, leaving Ellen Fanning to host solo.
And that was 7:30am.
