While I thought Hamish and Andy may have gotten the gig (they are both Nine identities and both in the running for the Gold), Fairfax reports they will open the proceedings.
I guess they were never going to let Adam Hills, Shaun Micallef or Wil Anderson host given they aren’t Nine identities… It really should go to Wil Anderson at some point. He loves to tweet about how dodgy the night is, so he should step in at some point.
But I suppose celebrities are also smart enough these days to decline what is widely regarded as a “poisoned chalice.”
Everybody still remembers Gretel Killeen’s night along with various others before her.
I always prefer a host because it gives the night some character.
Shane Bourne was the last host in 2011.
Anybody ask Jordan Raskopoulos?
