About Good Morning

Good Morning is a live weekday entertainment lifestyle show. It is transmitted from Avalon studios in Wellington and screens from 9am to 12 pm weekdays on TV ONE. It is hosted by Sarah Bradley and Brendon Pongia and co-hosted by Steven Gray.

Good Morning features a broad range of regular segments, celebrity interviews and competitions. Regular segments include the environment with Nic Vallance, movies, DVD reviews and gossip with Steve Gray, music reviews with Simon Sweetman, Robyn Walker and Stacey Morrison, law with Bill Bevan, fashion and beauty with Sally-ann Moffat, psychic matters with Sue Nicholson, crafts with Fifi, life and times with Gary McCormick, teens issues with Darryl Gardner, and many, many more.

Good Morning has something for everyone.

Celebrity interviews are a major part of Good Morning. Guests this last year have included Prime Minister John Key, singer Yulia, rocker Jimmy Barnes, R&R legends Boyz II Men, politician Rodney Hide, indie legend Chris Knox, comedian Lenny Henry, poet Sam Hunt, actor Temuera Morrison, cricketing legend Sir Richard Hadlee, veteran broadcaster Paul Holmes, children's entertainers Hi-5, sporting couple Rob and Sonia Waddel, '80s pop stars Paul Young and Tony Hadley, singer-songwriter Dave Dobbyn and former 007, Sir Roger Moore.

Every day in the Good Morning kitchen we whip up a storm. Good Morning's resident superstar Astar cooks every Wednesday, as well as doing crafts each Thursday.

Guest chefs include Martin Bosley, the Museum Hotel's Laurent Loudeac, Adam Newell from Zibbibo and Paul Rowan from Mange-Tout, and Simon Holst.

Celebrities also clamour to get into the Good Morning kitchen to cook and this year some of our guest cooks have included '80s pop star Paul Young, Kiwi Kitchen's Richard Till, ex-All Black Christian Cullen, ex-sevens player Matua Parkinson, US Ambassador Bill McCormick and the legendary Alison Holst.

Music is very much a part of Good Morning and is featured every week. Guests this year have included The Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra, Chris Knox, Martin Phillipps, Sheba Williams, Tina Cross, John Rowles, the Patea Maori Club, Dave Dobbyn, the Maori Volcanics, the Darlings, Delgirl, Rob Guest and our very own Sarah Bradley.

Good Morning is a fun-filled, interesting way to spend a pleasant morning.
