    The Seven Network’s hit breakfast show, Sunrise, has announced that Victorian locals Neil Mitchell and Peter Daicos will be joining its lineup, citing a commitment to covering important news and issues for Victorians.

    Daicos, a former Collingwood footballer, joins Sunrise as its AFL Insider for the 2024 season, leveraging his extensive career with the Magpies to offer insights into AFL discussions.

    Daicos said, “This year promises to be an unpredictable and exhilarating season of AFL football and I am so delighted to be joining the talented Sunrise team for some insightfully different footy discussion and plenty of fun for season 2024.”

    Mitchell, a prominent broadcaster, returns to morning television on Sunrise to provide insights into news, politics, and everyday issues affecting the state.

    Mitchell said, “I truly am delighted to be back with the Sunrise family after some years away.

    “Something I have really missed in my brief time away from morning radio is the opportunity to have an opinion and argue it. You may agree, or not, but believe me I am ready to go!

    “I am also keen to be unashamedly Melbourne, which is who I am. Much happens in Melbourne that sets the place for the nation, and I hope to be on top of that.

    “I have known Nat for a long time and worked with her often. It will be terrific to return to that. And I have watched Matt from afar – look forward to stirring him up occasionally.

    “Best of all, I understand Sunrise has a very loyal and engaged audience and I am very keen to speak with them, even to represent them when relevant. Yes, there will be opinions and debate and news explained. But there will be fun too. There should always be fun in life, and I am sure we will manage that.”

    Sunrise co-host Natalie Barr added, “We warmly welcome Neil and Peter Daicos into the Sunrise extended family and if we all disagree, great! Should be more of it.

    “One of the things I think people are craving right now is the ability to say what they think and not be shot down in flames for it.

    “As he’s shown over the decades, Neil Mitchell is certainly not afraid to share his opinions.”
