Grant Denyer Quits TV for the second time in 2013

Why do i feel like history is repeating itself…….

Grant Denyer has quit Million Dollar Minute saying family was part of his decision. This has been a difficult decision because I love the show but it’s in the best interests of my family at this time and as much as I love working on the show, I know it’s the right decision. The production side is gruelling and takes me away for extended periods of time,” Denyer said.

Denyer who left Sunrise for the same reason earlier this year will be replaced by  Weekend Sunrise reporter and It’s Academic host Simon Reeve.

I’m pleased that I can pass the baton to Simon, who’s a good friend as well as a former colleague at Sunrise. I am a great admirer of Simon’s work and I know he’ll do a great job.”

Simon reeve will take over the hosting duties in the New Year.

MILLION DOLLAR MINUTE airs weekdays at 5.30pm on Channel Seven.
