Speaking ahead of Saturday: AM and Sunday: AM’s first weekend on air, Anna Daly, said: “After a busy but fantastic six years reporting and presenting for Ireland AM, I’m hugely grateful to TV3 for giving me the opportunity to anchor a show that I’ve wanted for some time now. I’m also in a very lucky position to get two new TV hubbies in the form of actor/director Simon Delaney and broadcaster Ivan Yates. Viewers are in a different space on a weekend morning to a weekday so we’re looking forward to capturing that weekend mood and providing viewers with a brand new offering to kick start their day.”
And it looks like there could be lots of competition between anchors Ivan and Simon.
Simon Delaney, said: “Let me just make it perfectly clear. There’ll be no rivalry between myself and Ivan. We clearly come from different sides of the street. Ivan supports some crowd who wear blue and I support Man Utd. We’re polar opposites, and besides, Anna prefers me.”
Ivan added: “Of course Simon will play it down and say there’s no rivalry because he knows I’m going to be better than him. He’s a good laugh Simon, but his taste is questionable. You only have to look at the football team he supports to see that! I’m looking forward to winding him up and rubbing it in.”
