Grimshaw said the only thing that made presenters ever leave were the early hours.
“There would never have been the cavalcade of hosts on this show over the years if it was not for the hours. Because no-one would ever leave. It’s the only thing that finishes you, I think.”
Murdoch also confirmed that Karl Stefanovic had spent his post-Logies night socialising with her and Lachlan Murdoch in their hotel room before he went on air.
The show also remembered Eric Walters and Ian Ross.
PM Julia Gillard also sent a video message.
