As if he does not have enough on his plate, Perth broadcasting dynamo Basil Zempilas has signed on as co-host of Weekend Sunrise.

Zempilas has filled in alongside Monique Wright several times in recent months, but tomorrow’s show will be his first since accepting the job.

He has become one of Channel 7’s stars since joining the network in 1994 as a cadet sports reporter in Perth.

The father-of-three heads up Seven Perth’s sports news, covers the AFL and major sports events, anchors Telethon and co-hosts 6PR’s breakfast show.

As an out-and-out morning person, he feels comfortable about his new role.

“I do feel like it’s in my wheelhouse,” he said.

“Whether it’s on radio or TV, I think people want to wake up to a happy voice or face.”

Zempilas joins Weekend Sunrise sports presenter Simon Reeve as the second Perth personality on the show.
