Jane Kennedy reminisces about the Late Show in Herald Sun Confidential column

The Late Show would not have lasted "two episodes", if it went to air today, according to Jane Kennedy, quoted in an article in the Herald Sun's Confidential column.

She remarked that in this era of social media, and a television industry driven by ratings, it is likely that programs like The Late Show would not last (even on the ABC).

Kennedy commented,

"There was a time when a show could really build legs, but networks now can't afford to do that, which is a terrible shame. but I guess it is a result of television being much more commercially ratings -driven."
".....that's what's ahead here on Martin Molloy; the only radio show with an inner core of sphagnum."
