Morning TV hosts have weighed into the absence of women from the Logies Hall of Fame.
Today Extra host David Campbell said, “The options are endless, I can’t believe that Ruth is the only one in there.
“Television was a white male boy’s club and that’s the way it was.
“But we could have tried a bit harder up until now.
“The Logies probably could have tried a bit harder when looking, I think they’ve taken a few easy punts.”
Co-host Sonia Kruger agreed.
“It’s bizarre,” she said. “Strangely though, it doesn’t surprise me. We’ve come a long way, the fact that we’re talking about it today is a good thing. But I guess it was the way.”
Studio 10‘s Ita Buttrose, said the list was reflective of the gentlemen’s club mentality of the television industry.
“Women are constantly overlooked,” she said. “It’s what happens in Australia and the Logies reflect exactly what happens in Australia, women are overlooked.”
Jessica Rowe aded: “TV is dominated by men. It’s blokey.”
Organisers have said this year’s inductee -which would already be finalised- will be announced on the night.
