Jessica Rowe joins Studio 10 team
EXCLUSIVE: Jessica Rowe will become the fourth member of Studio 10 alongside Ita Buttrose, Joe Hildebrand and Sarah Harris.
Rowe will join with Ita Buttrose, Joe Hildebrand and Sarah Harris on the show which will follow Wake Up later this year.
Rowe co-presented TEN News with Ron Wilson from 1996 until the end of 2005 before joining the Today show. But her departure saw a legal case with the network which sought to prevent her joining Nine. Her later departure from the Today show was also wrapped in controversy after then CEO-Eddie McGuire allegedly discussed the idea of “boning” her from the job (a phrase he later denied).
She was later thrown a lifeline by the Seven Network to read news on Weekend Sunrise, which she has continued.
Rowe, who is married to Peter Overton, has also been highly praised for her public statements and advocacy on post-natal depression.
TEN is yet to announce a starting date for Studio 10, produced by Rob McKnight, but it is expected to launch in November with Wake Up as part of TEN’s push into morning television.
