“For seven years everything has been pre-recorded for me, so there was always room for error. But with live TV you just have to be on it. It’s instantaneous.”
Meanwhile Peter said co-anchor Karen Koster has been a huge help since starting on the series.
“I think me and Karen have the banter. I love working with the girls. They’re so great. The network as a whole has been great to me.
“Karen has been so helpful, she’s really been my safety net. She’s been looking out for me and making sure I don’t look like a moron on television.”
