Sunrise is an Australian breakfast TV show, broadcast on the Seven Network and featured Duran Duran's "(Reach Up for The) Sunrise" as its theme song up until 2010.

About the show[]

Like most other breakfast television shows, Sunrise blends a mixture of news every thirty minutes, interviews and light-hearted feature pieces into three hours each morning. Often they will go out and present the show from other locations, such as Hawaii, Las Vegas, Athens, Disneyland and more recently Melbourne for their Commonwealth Games specials, Beaconsfield in Tasmania and Dreamworld on the Gold Coast. A major feature of the show is that the viewer can send in their responses to stories via email, SMS or phone.

On weekdays the programme follows Seven Early News, and runs from 6am through to 9am. On weekends, Weekend Sunrise runs from 7am to 9am on Saturdays and 7am to 10am on Sundays.

Musical guests who have appeared on Sunrise include Fergie, Young Divas, Pink, Sam Sparro, Take That, Joss Stone, Avril Lavigne and Lady Gaga.
