Pippa Wetzell favourite to replace Breakfast's Gregory

Alt Tv/Fleet FM Breakfast News
Pippa Wetzell favourite to replace Breakfast's Gregory
Reporter Pippa Wetzell is a contender to become Paul Henry's third co-host on the couch of Breakfast after the sudden exit of Kay Gregory. TVNZ head of news and current affairs Anthony Flannery said this month that there were plans to improve Breakfast, which has been criticised because of a lack of rapport between Gregory and Henry. Pippa Wetzall is so lite weight, having her on Breakfast will be like waking up to Paris Hilton doing investigative reporting on global issues, Gregory is Mum and Paul is Dad, and the lack of rapport is the only sort of response one can have towards some of Pauls less lucid moments when the talkback host starts up with his usual right wing rhetoric.

So goodbye Kay, they’ve put the old duck out to slaughter and TVNZ thinks a pretty blonde will make things better. Silly old TVNZ, here’s to the end of an era, which reminds me of a James K Baxter poem Ballad of Calvery Street…

On Calvary Street are trellises
Where bright as blood the roses bloom,
And gnomes like pagan fetishes
Hang their hats on an empty tomb
Where two old souls go slowly mad,
Labour Mum and National Dad.

Are you mistaking Breakfast for a news programme?

Glad they are keeping Paul Henry around and I never liked Kay. But I don't think Pippa Wetzell will be much of intellectual much for Paul.

I kinda liked the 'Mum' and 'Dad' factor of Paul and Kay! Paul is a complete 'arse knuckle' but still quite funny on occasion!
I think the new pairing is a little strange ... How about Paul and Willie Jackson... brilliant!
