Shock twist: Is Sarah Harris set to replace... Karl Stefanovic? | TV BlackBox S01E17

It was meant to be an episode focusing on the end of year ratings... and while we do cover that, the biggest story is a bombshell Molk drops during the middle of a news item regarding Sarah Harris. Even Rob had no idea about this one and you can hear a pin drop when Molk reveals his inside information!

Plus, our penultimate podcast for the year takes a deep dive on the latest TV industry news sweeping around Australia and unearths some surprises, saucy secrets and a very ranty-thanks-to-end-of-year-ratings Molk.

Each week a washed-up TV Producer (Rob McKnight), a TV writer and executive (Dan Bennett), an EMMY award winner (Jay Cagatay) & TV enthusiast and commentator (Steve Molk) take you behind the scenes, wade through the pr spin and launch into the reality that is the Australian television business.

  • 10 ALL ACCESS launches in Australia to an underwhelming groan.
