Maybe it’s just a ploy to get people to tune into the first episode, but there’s a rather silly debate in the media today about whether Hamish Macdonald should be cleanshaven for TEN Late News, or can keep his stubble.
What a lot of nonsense.
To begin with Macdonald has fair-coloured hair anyway. He’s not about to present on camera like someone from Bikie Wars. I’m sure he’s capable of keeping it
Why is it ok for Charlie Pickering on The Project but not Hamish Macdonald? And what was wrong with the stubble he had when the network aired Bikie Wars: Here & Now?
Macdonald is of the belief that keeping it would add to the show’s relaxed, informal style. And he’s right.
The real point here is to let Macdonald be himself. That’s what helped him get to where he is today.
Aren’t there more important things to address?
