Hamish Macdonald is widely tipped to host his own late night news programme for the TEN network, but remained tight-lipped when quizzed by TV Tonight.
“At the moment you can see me on The Project. I’m hosting that at least one night a week at the moment, because it’s 6 days and they can’t all work all the time,” the Logie nominee said.
“I do little bits for Breakfast here and there. I’m floating around, keeping myself pretty busy.”
TV Tonight hears the push to have the impressive young reporter front his own show comes from TEN Chairman Lachlan Murdoch. There are whispers that rather than simply recapping the news of the day, it will seek to set the agenda for the following day, potentially allowing Macdonald to conduct interviews, Larry King style.
“I’m sure you’re hearing talk. I hear lots of talk as well. I’m excited about things that are on the horizon,” said Macdonald.
“The horizon always look pretty near doesn’t it?”
