The rumour mill is also rolling onto the Ten Network, with whispers abound that the broadcaster may not launch its new morning show Breakfast until March at the earliest.
The Sunday Telegraph is reporting that Paul Henry may have contractual negations in New Zealand that will prevent him from starting on Breakfast before March. That potential issue, along with the fact that Ten appears to still be trying to create "the perfect team" for the programme, may result in the launch being delayed.
However, it was not specified what Henry's contractual obligations are exactly, his current Radio Live show in New Zealand will conclude in March, which is when Henry will possibly start Breakfast. Henry's appointment can possibly be seen as an already risky move by Ten, after Henry resigned from TVNZ for making controversial comments about the former New Zealand Governor-General, and Delhi's chief minister.
The Breakfast on-screen team has been kept tightly under wraps, with the only two confirmed presenters so far being Henry and Andrew Rochford.
A female presenter will also join the team, but is yet-to-be-named. Personalities such as Sarah Murdoch and Kathryn Robinson have been floated as possible contenders for the position.
