Was it because he was a dikshit?

Andrew Rochford has got the arse-card, I wonder if it was because he was a dikshit?

Network Ten announced on Friday evening that Dr Andrew Rochford will no longer be a host of their Breakfast show, the early morning talk show that started in February this year.

In the brief statement a spokesperson from Network Ten said that “while Andrew Rochford left his role on Breakfast today, he continues to be a talented and valuable member of the TEN presenting team. His presence on The Project will increase in the coming weeks, as we discuss more significant opportunities with the Network.”

Rochford is a regular guest panelist on the evening comedic current affairs talk show The Project, though he was not on the Friday night panel.

Paul Henry and Kathryn Robinson will remain as the hosts of Breakfast which has had a slow start in the ratings. The show debuted with a modest 51,000 viewers but it has since regularly dipped below 30,000 – twice in May bottoming out at a mere 22,000 viewers. Compared with the 300,000-plus who regularly watch Today on Channel Nine and Sunrise on Channel Seven.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
