Margaret is switching channels

Font Size:

Margaret Pomeranz has signed a deal with Foxtel to co-host a new weekly show called Screen with Graeme Blundell. Pomeranz admits it will feel a little unusual to be on air without her usual sidekick, Stratton. Screen will not only focus on movies, but also television and online content.

“I thought I’d be vegging out on a beach somewhere,” said Pomeranz. “But you know, they’re so lovely at Foxtel, everybody has been so welcoming and they’ve got such a gorgeous range of films, I sort of feel it’s as close to the ABC as I’m going to get … I’ve found a very happy landing.”

Why not watch this interview of Margaret discussing the final episode of At the Movies?
