Andrew ‘Cosi’ Costello gets new deal with Channel 7
SAFM Breakfast host Andrew ‘Cosi’ Costello has found a new home for South Aussie with Cosi on the Seven Network.
As part of the new deal, Cosi’s travel and lifestyle program will move from Channel 9 to Channel 7, with the SAFM Breakfast host also contributing to program development on a range of other projects for the network.
Andy Kay, Seven’s general manager for Adelaide, welcomed Costello to the network.
“Adelaide has a worldwide reputation as one of the most liveable cities in the world and nobody promotes the city, and the state, like Cosi,” Kay said.
“His ability to connect to audiences, on television and on social media, with enthusiasm and energy is evident in every episode of South Aussie with Cosi. We are thrilled that Cosi is joining Channel 7 for the next part of his journey.”
Cosi, who will continue to host SAFM’s Breakfast show alongside Bec and Lehmo, noted the growth of South Aussie with Cosi over the past decade and expressed his excitement at joining the Seven Network.
“Channel 7 has been such a force in media for so many decades and we are thrilled to be joining their team of passionate South Aussies,” he remarked.
“When I look at the Channel 7 building at Hindmarsh, surrounded by South Australian icons like the Brewery Lights, The Entertainment Centre and The Gov, it really is the perfect place for South Aussie with Cosi to call home.
“South Aussie with Cosi was SA’s smallest TV production when it started a decade ago and it now has grown to become the state’s biggest non-news TV show and we are incredibly proud of that.”
