Channel 10 began its coverage of the GP on Friday, while Sunday’s action aired from 8.30am until 5pm.

In November, a Ten spokesperson confirmed that the embattled Studio 10 show had officially been canceled after more than a decade on air.

Presenters Angela Bishop, Narelda Jacobs and Tristan MacManus, as well as roving special reporter Daniel Doody, will remain with the network and play different roles.

Members of the breakfast show’s team were left furious by the “cold and emotionless” announcement that the final episode would air on December 22.

The email explained that the show was being canceled, but offered no words of support or comfort for the team, he reported. The Daily Telegraph.

According to the publication, a senior Channel 10 staff member said many employees were unhappy about the lack of empathy and care in the email.

“Just two weeks ago, Studio 10 was celebrating its 10th anniversary on air; now the team isn’t even being thanked for their hard work or successes,” they said.

They added: “It’s unfair for management to put the blame on a ‘change in viewing habits’ rather than poor decision-making at the top.”

In the email, Network News director Martin White said “there will be new morning programming” in 2024.

He added that there will be “increased focus on news and current events throughout the day”, and that a news bulletin at 3.30pm will be added to the schedule.

‘We will be welcoming some members of the Studio 10 team to the news team. No jobs in the journalism sector will be affected by this change,” she wrote.
