Saturday Breakfast is a New Zealand morning news and talkshow based on Breakfast, that aired on Saturday mornings from 7-9am from 3 September 2011 till 15 December 2012 on TV One (New Zealand).



Show format[edit]

10 minutes of news, sport and weather is presented every half hour between 7:00 and 8:30. News is presented by Brooke Dobson. Weather, presented by Sam Wallace is presented from a location around the country, usually where an event is happening.

The show has interviews with newsmakers and/or TVNZ reporters. The rest of the show has entertainment/light-hearted/special interest segments presented by Toni Street and Tamati Coffey.

The show was cancelled by TVNZ due to its lack of commercial sustainability, caused by the withdrawal of key sponsor Lotteries New Zealand. The last show was broadcast on 15 December 2012. This coincided with host Tamati leaving TVNZ to go overseas, and Weather reporter Sam Wallace being elevated to the Weekday Breakfast weather reporter upon Tamati's departure. Nadine will remain as Business host on the weekday show as will newsreader, Brooke Dobson, in her primary role as Auckland reporter.
