Morn­ing pro­gram re­turns to broad­cast from re­gion

Whitsunday Times - - FRONT PAGE -

THEY’RE back.

A lit­tle over a year af­ter broad­cast­ing their en­tire show from the Airlie Beach fore­shore, the To­day show will re­turn to broad­cast live from Hamil­ton Is­land on Mon­day morn­ing.

Cel­e­brat­ing its 35th birth­day next week, the pop­u­lar morn­ing show will take a We Love Aus­tralia trip be­gin­ning on Mon­day, June 26 in the Whit­sun­days be­fore trav­el­ling down the coast of Aus­tralia and fin­ish­ing with a mas­sive party at the Chan­nel Nine stu­dios on June 30.

Karl, Lisa, Richard, Tim and Sylvia’s ad­ven­tures will be­gin with a spe­cial pro­gram show­cas­ing the Great Bar­rier Reef, broad­cast from Hamil­ton Is­land in our pic­turesque Whit­sun­days.

Sylvia will dive Hardy Reef to see how sci­en­tists are en­sur­ing the nat­u­ral won­der is pre­served for fu­ture gen­er­a­tions. And the team will check in with lo­cals on how the tourist re­gion has bounced back from Cy­clone Debbie.

The main film­ing is ex­pected to be near Hamil­ton Is­land's Bougainvil­lea Pool.

“This re­ally will be a very spe­cial week for all of us here at To­day,” co-host Lisa Wilkin­son said. “Apart from be­gin­ning the week in the stun­ning Whit­sun­days – and trav­el­ling around this beau­ti­ful coun­try of ours – we’ll get to cel­e­brate our 35th birth­day with all the amaz­ing peo­ple who have helped to make this the won­der­ful pro­gram it is to­day. It prom­ises to be an ex­tra­or­di­nary week for our view­ers.”

“This is pure Aus­tralia. Reef, Out­back, Ned Kelly, lethal an­i­mals. And Niall. Niall! I love this coun­try, ” Karl Ste­fanovic said.

The cel­e­bra­tion will star a host of To­day friends from over the years in­clud­ing for­mer hosts and fea­ture live per­for­mances by for­mer One Di­rec­tion mem­ber and now solo artist Niall Ho­ran.
