Fair Go reporter Brodie Kane is set to join Hilary Barry and Jack Tame on TVNZ's revamped Breakfast show - but she admits she's not a "morning person".

In a tweet posted this morning, Kane revealed she'd be joining Breakfast as a sports presenter. TVNZ later confirmed the news.

Kane will join Tame and Barry on the revamped Breakfast show on September 19.

She said she was "really sad to be leaving Fair Go, but ridiculously excited about this new adventure".

But there's one problem - Kane admits she's not an early riser.

"I'm not famous for being a morning person ... That is the one thing that I'm going to have to really coach myself into."

Kane, who will be up against Paul Henry sports presenter Jim Kayes, says she's always been involved in sport.

"I did surf lifesaving all through my teens, swimming and hockey. Even though I get really angry at them sometimes, my number one team is the Warriors."

As announced earlier this month, Tame and Barry will replace the show's current hosts, Rawdon Christie and Nadine Chalmers-Ross.

The changes mean both Christie and Chalmers-Ross will leave TVNZ.

Tame, Barry and Kane's first show is on September 19.
