Grant Denyer has given an interview in which he talks about a future without Sunrise.
With Sunrise presenters currently in the midst of rumours, Denyer said with his contract coming up he was reassessing his career.
“Sunrise, whilst being a fun show, is just a life-sucking experience. Whilst you get to see some of the great places of the country, it is at breakneck speed and it can’t be sustained,” he told the West Australian.
“There has to be some normality pretty soon. I am certainly not going to sacrifice my lifestyle just for a breakfast television show, it’s not worth it,” he said.
Denyer returned to Sunrise in January 2010 after four years away. Since that time he has become a father but he is keen to remain with Australia’s Got Talent. A full-time move to motor racing next year is also not out of the question.
“There is certainly enough demand and opportunity around for me to be able to do that, and that is why I am reassessing things,” he said. “Motor racing is an exciting and passionate part of my life; television is not everything to me.”
Of course contract renewal time is also the perfect time to talk about quitting a show to media…
Meanwhile, Weekend Sunrise weatherman, the very affable James Tobin,told me last week he just loves his job.
