Which is why we were a little bit surprised this week to see their innocuous exchanges seemingly slip to the slightly more serious side.
It all started with the Logies relocation from Melbourne to the Gold Coast.
When it was first announced in September that Australia’s TV industry awards would be leaving Victoria’s capital, Karl threatened to boycott but has since shifted his stance.
In fact, now he’s so behind the Logies (which just so happen to be broadcast by his employer Channel Nine) he was upset to find out many of Channel Seven’s big names, including its Sunrise hosts, weren’t attending.
That news came earlier this week via The Daily Telegraph’s Confidential, which confirmed that Sam and Kochie, along with Morning Show hosts Kylie Gillies and Larry Emdur would not attend TV’s night of nights. A spokesperson told the newspaper that only nominees and a handful of others would attend.
But perhaps it was this quote from an “insider” that ticked off Karl: “The network has contempt for a Nine-biased event being run from a magazine no one reads and (feels) the awards themselves lack relevance in 2018.”
