Dr Andrew Rochford Quietly Leaves The Project For Channel Seven

Channel Ten‘s flagship news and discussion show The Project has suffered another personnel blow, with Dr Andrew Rochford quietly deciding to take his staggering good looks across to rival Channel Seven. Rochford’s departure from the show marks the third key departure from The Project in six months, following both Dave Hughes, who left the show in December of last year, and co-anchor Charlie Pickering who vamoosed in April.

Rochford kept his departure well under wraps until his final appearance in the Project panel chair this past Tuesday, confirming the news via his Twitter account.

Rochford’s new posting, it was announced today, will be as the Seven News Health Editor; a role created specifically for Rochford, who not only has a wealth of experience in front of the camera as a presenter, but is highly knowledge in the fields of health, what with being an actual legitimate doctor and all.
His new role will see him deliver reports for Seven News, as well as filing special investigations for both Sunday Night and Sunrise.

His departure from The Project leaves further question marks over the co-host chair, whose rotating reserve stocks are seemingly thinning by the day, with Dave Hughes’ replacement, Peter Hellier the sole remaining constant panelist, due to Carrie Bickmore‘s commitments as host of So You Think You Can Dance Australia.
All we know for sure is that Waleed Aly might have to step up his game, lest Steve Price actually spout one of his ridiculous arguments unchallenged.
