Channel Six veteran Kerri-Anne Kennerley has granted an emotionally-charged speech, saluting for its cameras in her very first TV appearance since being siphoned as a member of their network sweeping job cuts.
The Studio 10 host wore a dramatic military-style coat as she talked of her strategy to”get before the parade” after the news of her made national reports yesterday.
“I only know I am back to the lazy Susan of tv, it is very very difficult for a good deal of individuals,” that the 66-year old stated that morning.
“But I have always worked on a private level about the Charles Darwin concept that claims to live you do not need to be the most clever, you do not need to be the most powerful, but you must be the most adaptive. My life’s idea is that.”

Kennerley seemed to fight back tears as she told of leaving her”beautiful” Studio 10 colleagues and has been loathed by her co-hosts because she saluted to its cameras.
“I have had a ball… why I have this outfit on now is because if you are being run out of town, then get before the parade or catch before the audience and make it seem like a parade.
“Businesses do these type of reductions to produce the company better, and that in the long term saves far more jobs. I am really, very depressed… that stated it’s exactly what it is, you simply need to suck it up and then proceed.”
Studio 10’s Sarah Harris also looked downcast because she told audiences that the dust was”still settling” amid the task cut statement.

“Within a couple of weeks’ time 10 our small show will appear quite different to the way it will today,” she explained.
“We are losing coworkers, we are losing partners, we are losing relatives basically.”
Perth newsreader Monika Kos and weather Michael Schultz are one of the raft of high profile gift also axed within their price reductions.
Perth and Brisbane’s weekday information bulletins will then be centralised from Sydney, although Adelaide’s information is going to be sent out of Melbourne.
Throughout the staff speech Six’s network manager of information articles Ross Dagan stated it had been a”sad day” and those facing redundancies are sorely missed.
“The decision to make these adjustments was a really hard one and I would like to convey my sincere gratitude and thanks for our friends and coworkers that will depart the community,” Dagan said.
“It’s on no account a reflection of the gift, participation or fire. They’re exceptionally gifted folks. We’re very proud of their job. There’s absolutely not any doubt they’ll be missed.
“These debilitating modifications reflect the condition of the media business lately and the demand for all networking businesses to realize new efficiencies”
