Behind every famous person, there exists an undeniable truth: their fans are the bedrock of their success.

Beloved media personality Larry Emdur knows this all too well, as he recently took to social media to express heartfelt gratitude to his fans while celebrating a significant milestone in his career.

In a post on Instagram, Emdur celebrated The Morning Show being on air for an impressive 16 years and The Chase taking the top spot in the ratings for its timeslot for two consecutive days.

“THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!, I LOVE YOU’s ALL. Thanks so much for watching. This week the little baby show that Kylie and I gave birth to (that’s a cool visual) turned sweet 16,” Emdur wrote.

“The Morning Show has won the ratings every year since we launched in 2007 !!!! that means we never had to go back to our old job of ploughing fields. AND that other newborn baby The Chase has been the Number 1 entertainment show in Australia again for the last two nights, beating all the big prime-timers!

“Congrats to all The Chase team and The Chasers and of course to my favourite morning co-pilot @kyliegillies and our awesome @morningshowon7 family.

“Of course we are nothing, nada, zilch, zip, diddly squat without YOU our viewers, so thanks for turning us on (Don’t do a sex joke Laz, take the high road. Stay Classy.”
