TV veteran Kerri-Anne Kennerley this morning signed off her morning programme after nine years on Nine.
Surrounded by cast, crew, balloons and cake, she told viewers the show had been a joy to make.
“You the audience have stayed with us through a bunch of times. I know I’ve made friends with so many of you. I hope we’ve been a companion to you,” she said.
Nine is replacing Kennerley with new recruit Sonia Kruger in 2012, but she will remain with the network for projects yet to be decided.
“I hope you’ve enjoyed what we’ve tried to do, the information, the entertainment. We’ve loved it. I sincerely believe I will see you in the future.
She turned to her cast and crew saying, “Thank you people, thank you.”
A highlights series of Kerri-Anne will air over summer but Kennerley has already finished recording new intros.
“And thank you,” she told the audience.
