    I have seen bits and pieces of Today for the last week and a bit and have noticed how much Sharyn Ghidella has rocked as host of the show. She seems to be very intelligent, warm and friendly, articulate, isn't excrutiatingly patronising (like the blonde headed twit) and has a little bit of milf factor.

    She is definitely more appealing than short haired, dyke impersonating, Rowe who is 9's 'star' recruit.

    Anyone else realise that there were two born and bred Far North Queenslander's running the show this week? That gets a :thumbsu: from me.

    And no doubt every other morning we will be subjected to hearing her crap on about her mothers mental health problems. Thats enough to drive anyone to Kochy and his feel good antics.

    Exactly my point. When stealing someone away from a rival channel, shouldn't that person be actually better than what you have already? Maybe she is actually going to replace Leila as a competent newsreader and let Sharyn enjoy her fightfully earned position.

    Im hoping now that Kerry has kicked the bucket, James Packer will sell the network, and then her hubby David Gyngell wont be able to pull strings with his mate to get her gigs.

    Leila Mackinnon- Most transparent, superficial, ladder climbing, wench, in Australian television.

    Yeah Sharon goes alright I reckon.... at least adds a bit of intelligence to the show. Might be worth an extended run. She actually seems like she gets along naturally pretty well with everyone, where Leila looked like she had to try really hard.
