Recent changes to the Studio 10 family has kept Sarah Harris on her toes.
With 2 new co-presenters following a recent studio change and executive producer exit, it’s made the TEN show a 2.0 revamp before its 5th birthday on air.
“I must say when I came back from maternity leave I had to sniff my armpits and think ‘Was it me? Something I said?’ Within a couple of months we saw Jess and Ita leave and I was devastated,” she told TV Tonight.
“They’re not replaceable but on a TV show that is driven by personalities we were lucky enough to have beautiful Denise Scott, who is Australia’s mum, and Angela Bishop who has been under-rated as a personality for so long. She is friggin’ smart, funny, got a political science degree, sassy. We see a great side of both.
“When you are talking opinions all day it’s good to change things up. I knew what Jess and Ita were going to argue. But now we’re in the process -and I hope our viewers are as well- of learning something different about these 2 new hosts.
“But it has been a period of change no question. We have a new studio, we lost our executive producer.”
Former Executive Producer Rob McKnight is yet to be replaced with an Acting Exec Producer currently installed.
“I don’t know what that scenario is but we are all digging in, we’re all trying to make the best TV possible. And it’s a long show. We joke that it’s like putting together a telethon every day,” she said.
“There’s a really hard-working team of young producers who work their guts out to put stuff to air, which we are eternally grateful for.”
