Melissa Doyle leaves Sunrise
For nearly 15 of the past 17 years, my alarm clock has gone off at 3.15am. I’ve spent three quarters of my professional life doing breakfast television. And I’ve LOVED every minute of it.

Sunrise host Melissa Doyle has announced she is leaving the popular morning show after 12 years.

Breaking the news on air this morning, Mel said she loved every minute of working with the Sunrise team including her good friend and co-host David Koch.

“For nearly 15 of the past 17 years, my alarm clock has gone off at 3.15am. I’ve spent three quarters of my professional life doing breakfast television. And I’ve LOVED every minute of it,” she wrote on her facebook page.

“I’ve been offered a great opportunity to front a new, prime time Network News initiative. I decided it was time to take on a new challenge and so it is with great sadness that I announce I will be leaving Sunrise.”

Mel praised the Sunrise team saying they have been like a “second family”.

Mel will now take annual leave before flying to London to cover the birth of the royal baby.

She will then return briefly to Sunrise before saying goodbye to breakfast TV.
