Todd McKenney reveals he would love to replace David ‘Kochie’ Koch on Sunrise

He has been a star of Australian stage and screen for almost four decades.

Now it seems Todd McKenney, 54, has his eyes set on David ‘Kochie’ Koch’s early morning hosting gig on Sunrise. 

‘That is the sort of job I’d love to do,’ he told The Daily Telegraph, after joking about replacing the 63-year-old breakfast TV presenter.

He made it no secret he enjoyed filling in for The Morning Show host Larry Emdur throughout the years, but noted he wouldn’t like working on Sunrise’s early hours. 

‘I did breakfast radio for two years where I didn’t have to do hair and make-up, I could have turned up with pillow creases in my face. And that was hard enough,’ he quipped.

As a stand-in co-host for morning television, Todd said he loved being part of engaging conversations and listening to peoples’ stories.

Todd’s dream job revelation comes ahead of his return to theatre in Shrek The Musical as Lord Farquaad in 2020.

The former Dancing With The Stars judge, who is known for his tough critiques, said he was looking forward to playing the villain and being booed. 

‘I hope I get booed. I’ve never said that about a show before but I really hope I get booed – for all the right reasons of course.’

Last month he revealed to The Morning Show that playing the pint-sized ‘evil lord’ on stage was more challenging than he imagined. 

He explained: ‘I have to do all the dialogue on my knees.’

Todd said he spends up to an hour in costume around the house to ‘keep those muscles working’.
