The woman who began a Facebook fansite to bring Hey Hey it’s Saturday back to television has been rewarded with a position at production company Somers Carroll.
Corrine Lawrence’s love for the long-running show has now attracted over 600,000 supporters to the Hey Hey Facebook page she created.
Grateful host Daryl Somers told its followers: “I’m very excited to announce that Corrine Lawrence, who started this page, is joining Somers Carroll. Corrine is coming from Adelaide where she has been employed as a graphic artist. She is obviously a great talent having the initiative to start her bring back Hey Hey campaign back in 2008.”
Somers Carroll is producing a documentary on GTV9’s former Bendigo Street studios which was the hub of live television in Melbourne for decades.
“Sadly, there’s nothing to report about the on-air prospects of Hey Hey at this time but I can’t thank you enough for your efforts and genuine enthusiasm to keep the show on air. I can tell you that you’re not alone as we have been trying our best to make it happen too!”
The show could well be listed in the Logie nominations which are announced next Sunday, and if its fans have their way it may even win one.
