    1. @Rachel, agreed. Like father like son. Both command an audience and have an innate ability to engage audience attention. This isn’t something which can be taught or bought. Can’t believe September will be 17 years since Steve lost his life in an unimaginable fashion.

  1. This morning was the first time I saw Robert Irwin occupying Sam Mac’s weatherman responsibilities. Robert is seriously meant to be in front of the camera. He has great adlibbing skills, has camaraderie with the entire panel and speaks with conviction. Please Mr Warburton, give this talent a full-time gig.
