Next week the Today show will mark 40 years on air.
Nine’s breakfast show began on June 28 1982, hosted by Steve Liebmann and Sue Kellaway, both of whom will feature on the show next week as part of a week of celebrations.
The Nine team will be revisiting four decades of major news events, celebrity guests, road shows around Australia and the world, the wild viral moments, great Aussie characters– and of course, host bloopers.
On Friday, July 1, there will be a special broadcast featuring guest appearances from the program’s former hosts, with viewers invited to Channel 9’s North Sydney studio to celebrate the landmark anniversary Live.
Karl Stefanovic said: “I’m very much looking forward to celebrating 40 years of the Today show. It’s a great honour and privilege to host this program, which has been part of Australians’ lives for four decades now. It’s an incredible achievement, and right from the beginning it set the pace for the national agenda.
“We can’t wait to bring you some of the great highlights, reintroduce you to some of the remarkable people we have had on the show, and bring the hosts back to see what they look like now. It’s going to be absolutely terrific, with a big bunch of surprises along the way.”
Allison Langdon said: “Yes, it’s an absolute privilege to be part of the 40th anniversary celebrations. Having been with the show for three years, I have so much respect for all the amazing people who have sat in this chair before me over the years.
“It’s an honour to be able to look back and acknowledge the incredible, rich history of the show, the stories and the guests who have told them, and to reminisce in a walk down that memory lane of fashions and hairstyles that have come and gone over the years. Here’s to another 40 years of Today!”
