Matt Doran to join Weekend Sunrise

Peter Ford has revealed Seven reporter Matt Doran will join Weekend Sunrise from October 12.

Seven sources have confirmed the Sunday Night reporter will replace Basil Zempalis who wraps up his regular hosting this weekend.

Perth-based Zempalis will remain part of the Sunrise family, but wanted to pull back on travel commitments in his demanding schedule.

Doran will join with Monique Wright on the show, segueing from the now-axed Sunday Night.


  1. Ah Basil a legend in his own lunchtime no great loss, maybe he will stand for Parliament state or Federal for the Liberal he won’t be missed

  2. Basil had the Karl Stefanovic-effect for me – I found the show unwatchable when he was on it. He was smug, irritating and not easy viewing. Just as Karl was.
    Looking forward to Matt replacing him. This is a good move.
