Breakfast News according to The Age.

Peter Lloyd sounds like an interesting choice of host..if it goes until 10am then I'm guessing they'll be dropping (or moving) their airing of Australia Network News..they should show it live when it goes to air rather than the next morning - ISTR one poster saying that was around 7pm-8pm AEST.

Interesting choice indeed. I think Peter Lloyd's a good choice.

I adore Virginia Trioli. One of my favourite interviewers.

I've only really seen Virginia on Firday Lateline and I;ve nevr though much of her as a presenter. and Peter Lloyd is an unusual choice but's a good opportunity for him. i am all in favor of the ABC doing a breakfast show but I'm not sold on this idea...
This show will have a very small audience reach and considering that I'd expect it to be pretty cheap. I mean if they just cut to radio studios constantly it will get pretty dull.
i wonder if it will last through to the analouge cut off?

Interesting concept. I do like the idea of having a central studio throwing to interviews at ABC centres all around the country. Throw in some top of the hour news updates, and the occasional feature and you'll be providing people who want news and such with a decent free to air alternative. Wonder how long the "Breakfast News" title will stay though, can see it become "Breakfast" soon enough.

I wish they would move Kids to ABC2 and have this on ABC1 though.

Agreed, maybe a year or two once digital penetration reaches a higher number, on terrestrial and subscription.

It sounds pretty good. Although "Breakfast News" isn't crash hot. ABC Breakfast or Breakfast would be better. I expect it to be better than what Sunrise and Today are dishing up.

More Hard News?

I'd prefer "ABC Breakfast" or "ABC This Morning" than this title though.

I'd prefer either of those two as well.
ABC This Morning has a nice ring to it.

Breakfast News sounds fine to me. They can always lop the "news" off at some later date if they feel so inclined.

The ABC does have a history of giving programmes very boring names, anyone remember "Midday News and Business"?

Higher-quality, more interesting stuff..an alternative to what you see on Seven and Nine. Production standards may not be particularly crash hot though, I have a feeling we'll be seeing a lot of keyed backgrounds and dodgy Australia Wide-esque graphics unsure.gif

I would think they will use the insiders set in some way.
