TEN has confirmed news presenter Kathryn Robinson (pictured, right) will join its new line-up for its 2012 early-morning programme, Breakfast.
Robinson, who had been rumoured to be in line for the role, will join New Zealand presenter Paul Henry and Andrew Rochford.
Network TEN’s Head of News and Current Affairs, Anthony Flannery says “The chemistry between these four personalities is exactly what we are after for Breakfast. It was obvious from the beginning of auditions that they have a dynamic with a difference; unpredictable but the perfect start to the day.”
Robinson’s news career at TEN includes live news, last year’s Royal Wedding, the Delhi Commonwealth Games and The Project. The mother of two also holds a masters in journalism.
“I’m thrilled to join Paul and Andrew at the Breakfast table. TEN is committed to offering our viewers a fresh start to the day and I’m delighted to be involved. Thankfully I’m familiar with early mornings; I’ll need to be on the ball to keep these two in check!” she said.
TEN also announces meteorologist Magdalena Roze (pictured, left) will be the show’s resident weather expert and the fourth member of the morning team. Roze has been presenting on weekend News and has previous roles with roles at The Weather Channel and National Geographic. A self-proclaimed ‘weather nerd,’ she has a degree in Atmospheric Science, and won both the Australian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society Prize and the Biophysical Environments Prize.
“I’ve had such a fantastic journey at TEN so far and now I’m really excited to enter brand new territory with Breakfast. I live and breathe the weather and, while Paul Henry doesn’t believe me yet, in a country as large and diverse as Australia, there is some kind of extraordinary weather event happening in some part of the nation every day!” said Rose.
TEN is yet to announce a start date for Breakfast.
