Breakfast's new newsreader has this morning been welcomed onto the show with kind words from viewers as well as colleagues John Campbell, Jenny-May Clarkson and Matty McLean.
Indira Stewart was appointed the role last month.
"Loving the diversity team," one viewer wrote in, while others praised her smile and clear presenting.
"Thank you so much to everyone that is sending that feedback, I don't know who's paying you or if you're related to me," Stewart joked.
"But I'll take it and I appreciate it, thank you."
Stewart has taken over the role from Clarkson, who now co-hosts the show with John Campbell.
She joined the team from RNZ, where she previously hosted the First Up show, and has worked at RNZ Pacific and ABC Melbourne.
Breakfast executive producer Jonathan Williams earlier said he was delighted a journalist with Stewart's experience was joining the team.
