Natalie has always taken pride in wearing Australian designers, often tagging her Instagram posts with the hashtag ‘we wear Australian’.

Last month, after landing the top job at Sunrise alongside co-host David ‘Kochie’ Koch, Natalie said she believed she is living proof that women on television don’t get written off when they reach a certain age.

She said Stellar the moment she landed ‘the greatest job’ of her life the same week she turned 53, she spoke volumes.

She explained that she had been warned in the past that women were being overlooked by TV executives as they got older.

But I just got the biggest job of my life the week I turned 53. So I don’t think that’s true, right? ‘ she said.

Natalie, who has two teenage sons, thanked Channel Seven for her support during her pregnancies.

‘I think there is an opinion that it is a big bad TV channel, it must be terrible for women. But I have had nothing but support from this company. I think I’m living proof, ”she said.

Sunrise has maintained its strong ratings since Natalie took over from Sam Armytage, proving that she is the right person for the job.

Sam, who joined Sunrise in 2013, quit his job last month to spend more time with her family and her new husband Richard Lavender.

Her last broadcast day was Thursday, March 11.

Before that, she made headlines when she spoke about the toxic environment of the TV industry in an article for Stellar magazine.

There is a lot about television that is all about you and that is a terrible way to live your life. TV isn’t necessarily very healthy, ”she said.

‘It’s full of sociopaths and narcissists. It can be a dangerous environment, let me tell you. ‘

She also said that unmarried, childless women on television were treated differently and given more work compared to their married counterparts.

Her comments upset her colleagues and executives at Seven and have been described by some insiders as “ career suicide. ”
