Armytage leaves SunriseBy Jonas Lopez in Media News on Monday, 08th March 2021 at 2:30pm
Samantha Armytage is vacating her co-hosting spot at Channel Seven breakfast show Sunrise.
She said in today’s episode that personal crises over the past few months brought her to this decision. She had been with the show for eight years.
“I have always been very brave and fearless in my life and my career and this decision is no different… I go out of this job at a time of my own choosing and on top of the ratings, which not many people on television can say they do,” Armytage stated.
The Sydney Morning Herald hinted, though, that the move came as a result of network tensions building up for a year, ranging from Armytage’s behavior towards criticism and almost no off-set communications between Sunrise’s presenters.
Her final broadcast will be on 11 March.
