In a striking move the ABC have teamed up with the currently channeless Grant Denyer to make Logies history. During Logie nominated Tom Gleeson’s incredibly popular segment, I’d say ratings bonanza, Hard Chat, on Charlie Pickering’s likewise much loved, but not Logie nominated, The Weekly Gleeson decided that it was time that the Logies reached their logical conclusion with an axed TV presenter winning gold. Grant Denyer had been the host of Channel 10s Family Feud until they dropped the axe on it.
Now of course Twitter went berko with tens of people jumping on board with the hashtag. It was trending within lots of minutes. Twitter (yes, we’re one conglomerous glob) loves an underdog. Here’s just some of the responses:
Tom has already been doing the breakfast circuit in order to secure his dreams of watching Grant Denyer get gold.
Grant… well… having slightly more trouble getting onto morning shows…
(The order that I have placed this event happening may be deceptive.)
But breakfast radio has been kinder with the 2DayFM Breakfast team creating Denyer a campaign video.
If you check out the alternate hashtag #grant4gold you’ll see a few intriguing results from 2DayFM.
So what are we waiting for?!? I’ve voted for Hard Quiz and #Denyer4Gold and you can too here. Get on it, peeps. #DENYER4GOLD!!!!!!!
