THE Circle, one of Morn­ings’ com­peti­tors in the rat­ings race, was chopped last week by Chan­nel 10. Now Nine’s Morn­ings has Chan­nel 7’s The Morn­ing Show, hosted by Larry Em­dur and Kylie Gil­lies, in its sights. ‘‘I knew with Morn­ings that we (So­nia Kruger and co-host David Camp­bell) would be given time to de­velop and make it our own,’’ Kruger says. ‘‘The way I saw it was that it ( Morn­ings) was a whole new show. I was not keen to do it sin­gle-handed (be the sole host) and I don’t think Nine con­tem­plated it ei­ther. ‘‘It wasn’t re­ally Kerri-Anne be­ing re­placed. It wasn’t like all of a sud­den I turned up and took over her show. ‘‘ Morn­ings is one of those shows that of­fers longevity whereas prime time ( Big Brother’s time slot) . . . we­know how fickle that can be.’’
