Showbiz reporter Nelson Aspen today celebrated his 15 years with Sunrise.
US-based Aspen was at Brekkie Central today to reflect on his years of reporting on Hollywood & Broadway. He was greeted with nostalgic clips courtesy of Sam Armytage.
In 2013 he told TV Tonight, “The funny thing was I heard ‘Kochie and Mel’ and assumed ‘Mal’ must have been the man and Kochie must have been the woman!”
“I didn’t know who was who because I didn’t have return vision so it was all blind to me. But we had a fun chat and the Australian accents were a new challenge for me. So it was a one-off thing until I got a call from Adam (Boland, producer) asking me back.”
Meanwhile Aspen will also open his new cabaret show, “Just in Time,” at New York City’s iconic Don’t Tell Mama on April 5 and 12.
“Imagine going to Studio 54 for a dinner party with Irving Berlin, Julie Andrews, Barbara Eden, Harry Connick Jr and The Captain & Tennille!” he said.
“I used to think I was born 40 years too late, but my musical experience has shown me I was actually born…Just in Time!”
