It takes a particularly brave group of humans to venture into the world of live television. But particularly so when said television is recorded in the very early hours of the morning and routinely includes speaking to actors, world leaders, musicians and other A-listers from around the globe.
Luckily for Australia, though, Today host Lisa Wilkinson is one of the aforementioned people, but according to the 57-year-old, even she has had her bad days throughout her 10 years at the Channel 9 breakfast show.
“I just thought ‘I can’t keep doing this’," Wilkinson told news.com.au earlier this week when discussing her worst interview, which was with former US Vice President Al Gore.
“[He] came on the program around the time that he was promoting An Inconvenient Truth about climate change,” Wilkinson said, explaining that things were already set for disaster before they went live.
