Rove McManus is undoubtably one of Australia’s favourite TV personalities of all time, popularising the US format of late-night television on our own soil before taking on the medium in the States.
Having also been an early platformer to the likes of Carrie Bickmore, Peter Helliar, Hamish Blake, Andy Lee and Judith Lucy; and executively produced The Project, Rove also knows talent and opportunity when he sees it. Needless to say, his television career has shaped much of the traditional landscape we see today.
Jamila Rizvi sits down with Rove to talk about his comeuppance, sticking to his guns, grieving in public and what’s left on his TV bucket list.
