Former Today presenters including Steve Liebmann, Liz Hayes, George Negus, Tracy Grimshaw, Monte Dwyer, Sami Lukis, Georgie Gardner and Steve Jacobs yesterday celebrated 35 years of Nine’s breakfast show (sadly no Brian Bury?).
“I never regarded it as hard work or a job,” Liebmann said. “I made great friends and in a way, we were trail blazers, and we made great breakfast television.”
The hosts reflected on the early years, in a clip you can see here.
Officially launched as The National Today Show, the show premiered on 28 June 1982.
But suggestions that the show was first overlook that TEN’s Good Morning Australia preceded Today in 1981.
Still, Today is the longest-running of them all. Congrats.
