Matt Shirvington reveals what he REALLY thinks of ‘fast-paced’ Sunrise

Matt Shirvington has opened up about his experiences co-hosting Sunrise, a year after stepping into the role.

The 44-year-old took over as co-anchor alongside Natalie Barr on June 13, and his first day saw huge ratings from viewers.

Reflecting on his journey, Shirvington shared his gratitude for the opportunity.

‘It was just amazing… there hasn’t been a day where I’ve driven to work in the middle of the night with no one else around, even in the winter when it’s raining, where I’ve thought, ‘Should I do this? do it again?” he said The Sunday Telegraph.

“When you’re on the air almost four hours a day, five days a week – and it’s that busy – it’s the fastest show,” he explained.

“You don’t get any downtime; It’s been a wild ride over the last 12 months,” he continued.

The former athlete also expressed his pride in the show’s continued success and maintaining its position as Australia’s leading breakfast programme.

“I’m really proud of the way things have gone this year… we’re still the No. 1 brekkie show. That in itself, after 12 months, is huge,” he told the publication.

“Being able to replace someone and continue the success of the show at the same time is huge and really encouraging,” he added.
