Which breakfast TV show has the best team?
Robert McKnight
"Leading TV commentator" - The Daily Telegraph | "Known for his impeccable sources in the TV industry" - The Daily Mail | "Always first with the correct info" - Beau Ryan | Robert McKnight is a highly regarded Australian Television Producer having worked at SEVEN, NINE and TEN during his 25 years in the industry. Publicly he is most well-known for creating and producing STUDIO 10 but has worked on SUNRISE, THE MORNING SHOW plus other prime time productions in addition to creating award-winning news campaigns for both 7NEWS and 9NEWS. Currently, Rob is the host and producer of the TV BLACKBOX, MCKNIGHT TONIGHT and MONSTERS WHO MURDER podcast, and was the creator, host & executive producer of the video streaming show THE ANJ, ROB & ROBBO SHOW.


  1. With children’s productions, we’ve already seen all the commercial networks drop pretty much all their local shows…not only do Australian shows sell well internationally, it is important in the education of children and providing many jobs, including launching careers for cast and crew. Without quotas, children just don’t have choice and we can’t just rely on ABC Kids/Me to bare to brunt, especially when government funding has been frozen.
