Back in January I suggested that the behind the scenes drama of Sunrise would probably make for a good show in itself. And, while the day to day Hollywood reports and weather wagons probably outweigh anything worthy of a scripted drama, when you start to get people questioning the relationship of the alternative Prime Minister of a nation to the shows producers, throw in angry war veterans, the entire Australian media, and an apparently annoyed station owner who happens to vote the other way it suddenly all becomes pretty interesting.

I like Kevin Rudd, and I like Sunrise, and quite clearly Sunrise likes Kevin Rudd. His presence on the show has raised his profile immensely, I look forward to him being the next Prime Minister of Australia, and I look forward to Sunrise however subtly taking some credit for it.

Read the press release about todays announcement below.

Sunrise heard this morning from both Kevin Rudd and Joe Hockey – who’ve been speaking overnight.

They’ve decided it’s no longer possible to continue as regular weekly guests on Sunrise.

They point to their long standing friendship and their now senior positions they hold in opposing parties.

They’ve both thanked Sunrise viewers for the opportunity to speak candidly every week.

The team at Sunrise understand their decision. Politics can sometimes be a nasty game and it was never the intention of the segment to get bogged down in that.

As such, Sunrise thank them both for their contribution and respect their decision.
