Calling all those mad enough to be up before the crack of dawn in order to have a crack at appearing on national television.

As unaccustomed as we are to blowing the trumpet of other media outlets, Echonetdaily has begrudgingly agreed to notify the great unwashed of the apparently unprecedented appearance of three household faces in our beloved Byron Bay.

The Channel 9’s Today show’s ‘We Love Australia’ campaign will see Karl Stefanovic, Lisa Wilkinson and entertainment stalwart Richard Wilkins in the Bay tomorrow (Thursday, May 28), when a live broadcast from Apex Park will beam across the country as the sun rises from Australia’s most easterly point.

Also appearing will be local notables Tommy Franklin, Catherine Britt, Shelley Craft and Martin Sacks

‘To best represent the rainbow region our community are asked to come and join us dressed in rainbow colours, kids are welcome to pop down before school anytime between 5:30 and 9am,’ enthused tireless community coordinator Jodie, from Evolution Concierge.
