Mosman News: Angela Bishop Confirmed as New Panellist on "Studio 10" and Shares Her Happy News With Us!
NETWORK TEN VETERAN REPORTER ANGELA BISHOP TODAY BEGINS HER NEW ROLE AS A FULL TIME PRESENTER ON STUDIO 10, ALONGSIDE SARAH HARRIS, JOE HILDEBRAND, DENISE DRYSDALE AND NEW RECRUIT DENISE SCOTT. THE HIGH PROFILE JOURNALIST REVEALED THE HAPPY NEWS TO ANNA USHER, IN THIS EXCLUSIVE MOSMAN COLLECTIVE INTERVIEW.
Anna: Thanks for chatting with us Ang. It's officially your first day on the job as a Studio 10 host and you’re in LA. Tell us more!
Angela: Yes I am in LA doing a bunch of interviews that you will see very soon on the telly!
So my first official day is live via satellite from Hollywood.
Anna: What do you hope to bring to the show?
Angela: As a viewer I love the element of danger that live TV brings - and the feeling that anything can happen.
I hope to help bring that level of unpredictability and excitement to the show and maybe provoke a thought or two.
Anna: How long have you worked at Channel 10?
Hmmm let me put the thinking cap on!
I have been at the network for 29 years next week. I came in as part of a child prodigy intake program (if only!!!)
I started as a general reporter on News and went on to report for Sydney with Mike Gibson, Hinch and Alan Jones Live.
I was a founding cast member of The Panel as their showbiz reporter, worked alongside Bert Newton on Good Morning Australia and was a presenter on E! News.
Add in producing and presenting a bunch of stand alone interview specials with the likes of Oprah, ABBA and George Lucas and I can start to see where all the years have gone!
Anna: Over the years you’ve no doubt had offers from other networks, but you’ve remained loyal to the network. Why?
Angela: There have been offers, which is incredible, but Ten has a knack of letting people grow into their areas of expertise.
Rather than put employees in a box, they let people work to their strengths, and that encourages hard work and loyalty.
Anna: What do you love about Studio 10?
Angela: It really is the live aspect, plus working with a team of people I genuinely like and admire, and who make me laugh.
Anna: What does your daily routine look like now?
Angela: I’m up before 5am to read the papers and get up to speed on what’s happened around the world overnight.
I drive into work and then it's into hair and makeup (and may God bless the incredible team at Ten Styling who perform actual miracles!)
Once Studio 10 is done it’s time to put my Ten Eyewitness News hat on and maybe shoot an interview or a story, which I will then write, edit and put to air by 5pm.
And if there’s a big awards ceremony or red carpet, I’ll be there.
Anna: Do you have any first day nerves?
Angela: Not nerves so much, but I have had the office lurgy and I am hoping my voice holds out. Don’t want to start the gig sounding like a 0055 call!!!
Anna: Mosman things now. Where's your favourite cafe?
Angela: Amelia and I love Frenchy’s cafe and we often ride our bikes there.
I love the goats cheese salad and Amelia always has a hot chocolate.
Anna: You’ve lived in Mosman for your whole life haven’t you?
Angela: Apart from a couple of brief affairs with Neutral Bay and North Sydney in the 90s, yes I have.
Anna: Where do you like to hang out locally on the weekends?
Angela: Amelia and I love bushwalking - and the Georges Heights to Bradleys Head walk is a favourite.
I also love the fact that Amelia likes playing in the tunnels at Georges Heights that I played in as a kid and that my dad played in when he was a kid. History repeating itself!
Anna: What about dining out?
Angela: At the moment I'm loving Bistro Moncur.
It's an easy, tasty menu with a super comfortable vibe.
Anna: The best thing about living in Mosman is …
Angela: The bush, the beach, the parks, the local shops. We are spoilt rotten.
Anna: Thanks so much for chatting with us Ang and we're wishing you the very best of luck in the new gig (not that you need it!)
Angela: Thanks Anna! I can't wait to get started.
