White Australian TV Personality says there should be more diversity on Australian TV



Channel Nine Today show host Karl Stefanovic has been kicking arse, taking names and chasing seagulls recently... not really... he's just been wearing the same blue suit to make a subtle point about sexism in the media industry (no viewers pointed out that he had been wearing the same suit for nearly a year, while co-host Lisa Wilkinson is constantly barraged with emails from viewers criticising her style and dress.) and then in an interview with the Australian Indigenous channel NITV, he outlined why he thinks Australia needs more diversity on TV and in typical Stefanovic fashion said, "fundamentally, white people are pretty bland."

Stefanovic then went on to say that the more difference you have in colour, in accent, in race, in humour, in belief, I think the richer you are.
