TODAY show host Karl Stefanovic has lashed out at rival breakfast show Sunrise over their decision to film overseas.


This week, Seven's Sunrise is filming in Hawaii while Nine's TODAY is shooting their show in different locations around Australia.

“Why would you want to go overseas?” Stefanovic told The Daily Telegraph.

“Hawaii’s a bit of a ramped up Gold Coast, why would you want to go there? I don’t know why they’ve gone there when they could be holidaying and doing their thing in Australia, and promoting Australia.”

“They’ll be sipping on their mai tais, putting on as many leis around their necks as they can while we’re actually doing something for the country, get that into you Sunrise.”

Nice hat Kochie! #hawaiisun7 :)


Executive producer Michael Pell has now hit back, saying Sunrise is the most “ocker” show on morning television.

“No one could accuse us of not being a fair dinkum Aussie breakfast show,” he said.

“We don’t rest on our laurels and we’re bringing our viewers with us on a holiday.”
