Nine’s morning cooking show Fresh has been axed.
Previously known as Fresh Cooking with the Australian Women’s Weekly, the show hosted by Pete Evans has been unable to secure a sponsor.
According to the Daily Telegraph, the cheapest option for Nine is to extend the two-hour Mornings With Kerri-Anne to 11.30am each day, with the morning news pushed into Fresh’s slot.
“We’re a very flexible program and we normally have more ideas than we have time to fit them in,” Kerrie-Anne Kennerley told the newspaper.
She points out the show already has cooking segments with Lyndey Milan and Mike Moore, or the show could open up to extra forums.
“There are so many areas for discussion and maybe we can put some more meat on those forums with big panels discussing them.”
