Rove McManus announced he was quitting his talk show last night after ten years on the air. On Friday he was named kids’ favourite and favourite TV star at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards. Although rumours had been swirling for weeks that Rove Live might not be around in 2010, it was still a bit of a surprise when he announced that last night was his final show. It was thought that he might rework the format and return again in April. But last week Rove and sidekick Peter Helliar were spotted dining with Merrick Watts, which led to speculation that the pair might be interested in a regular radio gig at Nova.
