After eight years working together, Sunrise host David “Kochie” Koch confused the name of weather presenter Sam Mac.
The TV veteran called the presenter “Sean” instead, mistaking him for his producer with the same name.

The hilarious moment was captured and shared by both Sunrise and Sam on Monday over Instagram stories.
“Can’t wait to see you there,” Sam said, finishing his weather cross.
“All right Sean, thank you … or Sam,” Kochie said in response.
“Sam actually,” the weatherman quipped, correcting Kochie.
“Whatever your name is,” Kochie added as Sam said, “Thanks Karl, good to be on the show”.
At that moment, the real Sean – Sam’s producer, appeared on camera clearly chuffed that Kochie had confused him with his colleague.
‘After all we’ve been through’
Co-host Nat Barr added, “He’s confused (Sam) with the guy who does the real work”.
“We’ve worked together for eight years Kochie,” Sam continued.
Defending himself, Kochie said Sean “keeps texting us, he’s keeping us up to date on what’s going on”.
“Thank you, Sean, see you Sean” Nat joked.
Sam shared the video on his Instagram stories: “Afer all we’ve been through, Kochie got my name wrong,” he said alongside a broken heart emoji.
Also to experience “Mondayitis” was news presenter Edwina Bartholomew.
Reading a news segment about wage rises, she said “people are preparing for a rage rise … rage rise … rage rise … increase in wages,” she finally managed to correct herself as Kochie was heard laughing in the background.
“Rage rise works too 🤣” a comment on the Sunrise Instagram responded.
“100 per cent all the feels!!!!” another said.
“Oh feeling you today @edwina_b 🤣” said a third.
