Australia’s favourite breakfast TV show, Sunrise, has a new home following its move to the Seven Network's new newsrooms and studios in South Eveleigh.
The first edition of the new-look Sunrise went to air live at 5.30am on Monday, and hosts Natalie Barr and Matt Shirvington, newsreader Edwina Bartholomew and sports presenter Mark Beretta are already right at home in their high-tech, purpose-built studios. The Morning Show’s Larry Emdur and Kylie Gillies will also broadcast their first show from South Eveleigh..
The arrival of the Sunrise, Weekend Sunrise and The Morning Show teams means that for the first time in more than 40 years, the entire Seven Sydney operation and all broadcast and operational staff (across all departments) are now under one roof.
The brand-new news and public affairs facilities at South Eveleigh cover two expansive floors of Seven's head office and are five times larger than the previous Martin Place location, with permanent sets for all programs.
Seven Network Director of Morning Television, Sarah Stinson, said: "Brekky Central has been an iconic part of Australian TV for two decades but the time has come to move to a new home.
"South Eveleigh allows us to bring world-class technology to breakfast television in a way that will enhance the experience for our much-loved viewers.
"From today, viewers will see a brighter and fresher look, but the heart of our shows will never change. Our teams will continue to bring the best coverage of news, sport, weather, entertainment and so much more – and we’ll continue to have a laugh as only Sunrise and The Morning Show can."
