Media speculation on the future role for Sarah Murdoch sees her now being floated as a possible replacement for Carrie Bickmore on The 7pm Project, with Bickmore previously being touted as the new female co-host of Breakfast.
But both moves would require long-term relocations for the Sydney and Melbourne ladies -making that outcome a long shot.
Yesterday Majella Wiemers, executive producer of Breakfast, denied Murdoch was on a shortlist while a TEN spokesperson told News Limited, “There are no plans for Sarah to join Network TEN at this time.”
The words “at this time” are crucial here with a TEN spokesperson last year also denying Video Hits was set to go, Sports Tonight was to end its bulletins and insisting that a role was being sought for Deborah Knight. It all depends what is confirmed at the time the question is asked….
Meanwhile the names in contention for Australia’s Next Top Model rule out Jennifer Hawkins who has already turned it down due to other commitments, and whose Myer deal clashes with the show’s David Jones sponsorship. That would leave Megan Gale as a front-runner, even though she is host of Project Runway Australia.
Miranda Kerr is said to be high on the list, followed by Britain’s Next Top Model host Elle Macpherson and an outsider, model Nicole Trunfio.
Charlotte Dawson will remain as a judge alongside Alex Perry.
