Natasha Exelby Leaves Wake Up!

After only 2 weeks on air Natasha Exelby has left Wake Up – not a great sign.

A Statement from Network Ten.

Spoiler: show
Network Ten today announced Natasha Exelby has departed its breakfast television program Wake Up.

Wake Up will continue to be hosted by Natarsha Belling and James Mathison, with Nuala Hafner presenting local news for every state. Ms Exelby will remain with Network Ten’s News division.

There will be no changes at Network Ten’s new morning show, Studio 10.

Network Ten Director of Morning Television, Adam Boland, said: “It’s important we get Wake Up right.

“I have said repeatedly that chemistry is everything at breakfast and, right now, I don’t think the balance is correct. It’s up to producers to fix those things.

“I rate Natasha, Natarsha and James extremely highly individually, otherwise they wouldn’t have been there in the first place. I also saw genuine spark during show rehearsals, but sometimes, that doesn’t translate on air. That is nobody’s fault, except mine,” he said.

“Natasha is a dear friend. She is also genuinely talented and will remain a key part of Ten into the future.”

From the limited times I have seen her on air (this and other shows) as a host she makes a good newsreader.

Yes, I've always liked her. She's probably too good for Wake Up!

This show, which is still "new" in the topic title, is axed. Its last show will air this Friday. It is due to budget cuts made by Channel Ten, which has also cut the Early, Morning and Late News services (also airing the last services this Friday).

Such a shame to see Wake Up go.

Where is the happy medium between the fluff of Today and Sunrise and the dry and dull of the ABC?
We've gone over to the ABC for morning news but after we've got the gist of what's going on we watch recordings or if I'm busy setting up dialysis Rob switches the tv off and the radio goes on WSFM.

For anyone from sydney, the wake up is a very notable backpackers overlooking railway square, central Station and the central park redevelopment precinct

Maybe a few channel 10 employees can check into there while they seek new employment :lol:
