A new line up for Seven Sharp

December 19th, 2013 at 1:00 pm by David Farrar

Stuff reports:

Broadcasters and Toni Street say they are excited to be joining current affairs programme .

TVNZ confirmed last evening the show would return next year, with Hosking and Street joining co-host Jesse Mulligan.

Alison Mau, another of the show’s hosts announced her last night she would finish with the show on Friday, while Tamati Coffey’s fate was unclear, although TVNZ said last night it was looking at other opportunities for him.

It will be interesting to see how the new line up goes. Hosking is an experienced broadcaster. Also will be interesting to see how Ali Mau goes on Radio Live with Willie Jackson. Would have more fun to see her paired up with John Tamihere :-)

    I like Mike Hosking, but probably not enough to actively watch Seven Sharp.

    So has JT been given the arse from Radio Live?

    Toni Street? Have refused to watch her since her wall to wall patronising and vacuous display at the Commonwealth Games. She is the journalistic equivalent of a Mike King pork advert

    I don’t like Seven Sharp. I think it is little more than a shallow talk show. I preferred Mark Sainsbury with news commentary and interesting interviews. Even though I don’t like Campbell because of his ego I prefer his style of in-depth serious interviews. Needless to say I don’t watch Seven Sharp.

    JT is gone from Live, probably to politics and I only say that because he’s a lawyer and if he didn’t want to leave Radio Live he wouldn’t be going. He’d have a massive out clause regardless.

    Ali Mau and Willy Jackson although comrades for The Cause will drag that station further into ratings no mans land.

    Classic TVNZ without a plan, they put Street onto a joke show just when she, the weather presenter, the hot dark haired girl and Rawden Christy finally get a good camaraderie going. It’s pretty watchable for that sort of fluff. Just a dumb decision from an organisation renowned for it.

    Hosking will actually save the slot. I’d say what they will do is gradually ease it back to the standard format with Hosking as the marquee, and hope like hell nobody notices.

    Yogibear – Absolutely spot on – and now she spends her time in self aggrandisement – Very shallow

    I’ve come to enjoy Seven Sharp and will miss Ali, and as I can’t stomach the ramblings and politics of Willie J I’ll not listen in to that show. Toni Street seems too jolly hockey sticks, saccharine and lightweight for my tastes, but think that Hosking should bring some gravitas and he and Jesse should be good foils for each other

    Mike Hosking must have rocks in his head. Either that, or he was made such a lucrative offer by TVNZ, he just couldn’t turn it down.

    Seven Sharp is crap – pure and simple. And the only reason it’s taken this long for the TV1 hierarchy to realise the axe had to fall on the presenters, is that the slot was only competing (time slot wise) with the equally awful effort on TV3 – the slot fronted by their resident oaf.

    I like Hosking. A cleanout of personnel at Seven Sharp was long overdue. But for this slot to attract viewers back to 7pm, it needs a radical change in both direction and in content.

    Time will tell.

    Fair opinion and I thought jolly hockey sticks was about the funniest thing I’ve read this week. Such fun!

    But I’m going to call you out on this: ‘and he and Jesse should be good foils for each other’

    This is where it all went so wrong for the geniuses at TVNZ. It’s not a silly game of jousting, one-upmanship and ‘irreverent banter’. It’s f***ing current affairs! They could have strayed into that territory a bit after the dry balls Sainso, but to swing the pendulum that far into comic territory was just mental. Especially when the comic moments were often utterly tragic

    Elaycee – The problem they have in terms of restoring any credibility of content for the 7pm slot, is that they have let standards of journalism and reporting descend into lowest common denominator crap. And any professional journalist/presenter would not have a bar of this shit anymore.

    Don’t expect too much to change….Hoskings is the equivalent of Mau and Coffey rolled into one. Sounds like people will now have the option of being bored shitless for both breakfast AND dinner. Wonder how long it will take brfore he starts offering endless ‘freebies’ to attact viewers, like he does ad nauseam to the dwindling band of sycophantic listeners to 1ZB. Give me a break!!

    I think if I’d ever watched Seven Sharp I might care. But as the whole premise is flawed (current affairs as a chat show) I switch to Prime once the weather is over. At least then you get to see Hayley Holt…

    TVNZ listen up. I’m fairly old but not very old and, like my “demographic,” I am accustomed to watching the news at 6pm on TV1 even though it is not very good. It is a habit to also continue to watch the segment that follows except that now the segment is totally juvenile and even the young people I know think it is rubbish. Who watches this mindless drivel? Probably the uber-busy family preparing meals or the elderly in rest homes. I mean no disrespect to these people …. the former are too busy to notice the crap and the others are sadly , often usually too vague to notice.

    Toni fucking Street.

    They are taking the absolute living piss.

    What the fucking fuck is she ever going to do on there, huh ? I can’t wait to watch her pissarse airhead bubblebrain banal blardy babbling blathering bantamweight ba-nah-nah blowhard backward phoney baloney bland bowel-emptying banter.

    She looks like Phillip Leishman with long hair, and sounds worse than a West Coast yokel with a lisp talking with his mouth full.

    She should stick to making a dog’s breakfast of Breakfast… babysitting geriatric early riser old farts looking for another early rise picturing her dressed up like a naughty little schoolgirl cooing and smiling inanely, more girly-girl than an actual five-year-old skipping down the street.

    She’s such a lightweight it might be worth tuning in just to see if she starts floating weightless out of her fucking chair like an astronaut.

    Ah….. that’s much better !!!!!!!! :) :)

    Entirely agree Alex. I get sick of weasel words and people talking around the subject. If LR&C does not think she is up to the job, why does not he just come out and say so?

    They’re going after people who spend money in shops. If you’re not one of those people – then they don’t give a flying fuck who you are, what you care about, what you want to watch – you can fuck off !!!!!!!!!

    So if you’re some decrepid miserable sounding git with more health problems than they’ve got names for whose last purchase came from fucking DEKA – unaware that there are in fact any other stations apart from One and the other one – that new one – Two I think it is – and you miss your best mates Judy Bailey and Richard Long and everything was better in the old days – the game shows were easy to follow – what’s in a bloody bag, I mean seriously – you have to make it simple when you go to some of these small Deliverance villages and carless days weren’t really that bloody bad – and I love watching some country fried inbred rounding up farm animals into pens with border collies ( when we all know it should’ve been the dogs whistling while the human runs around on all fours like he’d like his Mrs to )…. then yeah, they don’t want you. They want the digital age children. Lots of money, lots of Facebook ‘friends’, zero face-to-face interpersonal skills, so no partner, no family until age 40 minimum, sweet as fill up one of my eggs with a syringe, they want to get at those poor little bastard’s money. It’s all interest free for five years, and five years is sooooo far away it might as well not exist – and you’ve got to have the latest i-toy, don’t ya ?
