Sonia Kruger settles into new spot

SHE'S the new face of morning TV, and Sonia Kruger is relishing the chance to revamp the 9am timeslot.

Kruger and her MORNINGS co-host David Campbell made their highly anticipated debut on Channel 9 on Monday, after the dramatic ousting of long-time morning TV queen Kerri-Anne Kennerley late last year.

Kruger knows she has a lot to live up to, and doesn't shy away from talking about KAK's legacy and loyal fan base.

Only time will tell if she'll be able to win over KAK viewers.

"There will only ever be one Kerri-Anne," Kruger said.

"I've always admired her. She's been a great role model for women in television.

"The show is MORNINGS with Sonia and David, so we're just going to do that to the best of our ability."

Kruger is grateful for the more forgiving format of daytime TV, where shows have more time to "bed in" than primetime ones do.

MORNINGS - Nine - Mondays to Fridays at 9am
