Former sports stars Josh Kronfeld and April Ieremia are about to front a new daily morning television show.

The Brunch show will go to air on Choice TV from September 24.

The hour-long magazine show, to screen from 10am on weekdays, with a best-of compilation screened on weekends, will be recorded at Avalon Television Studios by Choice channel owners Top Shelf Productions.

Former All Black hardman Kronfeld said he was looking forward to fronting the  show.

''I'm a bit nervous about the whole process, but it's all good. You've got to try these things and if it works it works.

''The people that are organising the show are pretty confident I can do it, so we'll give it a go.''

Ieremia, former Silver Fern and sports presenter was an experienced performer and ''She'll be my safety belt,'' said Kronfeld, a physiotherapist who dabbles in public speaking, television spots and charity promotions.

The show will be a revenue earner for the prospective new owners of Avalon studios which TVNZ has under contract to sale to a syndicate led by Wellington property investor John Feast.

It is understood studio managers are part of the deal which was contingent on securing continuing contracts to produce the Trackside racing channel and Lotto segments.

The sale is expected to be confirmed in the next few days.

Feast said earlier this year he was keen to see the studios kept going as a production facility that would retain work in Wellington for its highly qualified staff.

TVNZ put the studios on the market last year after it announced that its last regularly produced Avalon show, Good Morning, was moving to Auckland.
