Wake Up drops Natasha Exelby
Natasha Exelby is gone from TEN's new breakfast show in only its third week.
The move comes in the show’s third week on air and after much publicity about the trio’s chemistry.
TEN CEO Hamish McLennan said today the show still needed some changes.
She will remain with Network Ten’s News division.
Network Ten Director of Morning Television, Adam Boland, said: “It’s important we get Wake Up right.
“I have said repeatedly that chemistry is everything at breakfast and, right now, I don’t think the balance is correct. It’s up to producers to fix those things.
“I rate Natasha, Natarsha and James extremely highly individually, otherwise they wouldn’t have been there in the first place. I also saw genuine spark during show rehearsals, but sometimes, that doesn’t translate on air. That is nobody’s fault, except mine,” he said.
“Natasha is a dear friend. She is also genuinely talented and will remain a key part of Ten into the future.”
TEN says the are no changes for new morning show, Studio 10.
