Kerri-Anne Kennerley is joining Studio 10 in a part-time role.
She will appear 2 days a week on Mondays & Tuesdays, in a job-sharing arrangement with Denise Scott.
The TV veteran famously hosted Good Morning Australia for TEN from 1981–1991 and Mornings with Kerri-Anne (renamed as Kerri-Anne) for Nine from 2002 – 2011, following three years on Midday.
Kennerley said: “Three decades of live television is just not enough. I can’t wait to get the adrenalin pumping again and join the wonderful Studio 10 team two days a week. There is a slight feeling of coming home to TEN, where I enjoyed over a decade of fabulous live television. I have a feeling it will be a lot of fun.”
Studio 10 Executive Producer, Lucy De Luca said: “We are so excited to have Kerri-Anne as part of the Studio 10 family. Kerri-Anne is an Aussie icon who has played a huge part in television history, so it is great to see her return to her home here at Network TEN.”
She joins as Denise Drysdale pulls back from her commitments.
Drysdale wrapped her 2018 studio commitments on Friday but is expected to file occasional stories later.
But the TEN show, broadcasting this week from Melbourne, has its work cut out with ratings hovering around just 50,000 – 60,000 a day.
“The ratings are obviously pretty shocking, to be quite frank, at the moment so let’s hope they improve,” she told News Corp.
Seven’s Morning Show is the timeslot champ, at around 150,000.
