A new year brings new beginnings with respected journalist and reality TV Star Anjali Rao replacing Ben Norris as co-host of the newly named Anj, Rob & Robbo Show.
Ben announced in January he was leaving the show to focus on a series of other projects, including his podcast TV Reload.
Anjali Rao will join Rob McKnight and David Robinson when the new series kicks off on Monday 1 February at the new time of 9pm AEDT Monday to Thursday.
Anjali brings a wealth of experience and versatility to the role with career highlights including working as an anchor of CNN, a reporter for Channel 7 and she is also part of the cast of the upcoming season of Real Housewives of Melbourne for FOXTEL.
Executive Producer Rob McKnight said he is thrilled Anjali has agreed to join the team:
“We are obviously sad Ben has decided to move on, but I can’t think of a better replacement than Anj.
“I was genuinely surprised at the calibre of people who expressed interest in taking up the role, but Anj was always my first choice.
“She has credibility when it comes to the hot button issues in that she has reported from all over the world, so she knows what she’s talking about, but she also has a cheeky side which is perfect for our show”.
Anjali says she can’t wait to begin this new chapter of her life:
“Whoever said that lightning doesn’t strike twice unfortunately wasn’t lucky enough to get to work with Rob McKnight and David “Robbo” Robinson. I always loved our time on air together when I was hosting Studio 10, and to be able to have a second trip around the amusement park with these two is an absolute dream. I can promise plenty of fun, definitely some feist, and I’m also thrilled to inject a shot of oestrogen into the proceedings as well. Enjoy that, boys!”
The Anj, Rob & Robbo Internet Show is the home of serious news, engaging views and entertainment too… with plenty of laughs.
