Grant Denyer has decided to step back from Million Dollar Minute hosting duties for family reasons. Weekend Sunrise and Seven News presenter Simon Reeve will take over the quizmaster role early 2014.

“This has been a difficult decision because I love the show, but it’s in the best interests of my family at this time and as much as I love working on the show, I know it’s the right decision,” Grant said.

“The production schedule is gruelling and takes me away from home for extended periods of time.”

“I’m pleased that I can pass the baton to Simon, who’s a good friend as well as a former colleague at Sunrise. I am a great admirer of Simon’s work and I know he’ll do a great job.”

Simon will take over the hosting duties in the New Year.

MILLION DOLLAR MINUTE airs weekdays at 5.30pm on Channel Seven.
