Tourism Council WA boss Evan Hall will join The West Live this morning to discuss the State's hard border policy heading into the Christmas season and push for a tentative hard border reopening date.

The West Australian today revealed nearly three-quarters of sandgropers want Premier Mark McGowan to set a tentative date for opening the State's interstate border in an exclusive poll.

It comes as Victoria recorded its second straight day of zero new coronavirus cases, following months of strict lockdowns.

Mr Hall will update podcast host Jenna Clarke on how the tourism and hospitality industry is coping under McGowan's border policy and stakeholder sentiment towards reopening.

Later on the show, Perth Racing is facing hiring challenges ahead of their highly anticipated Spring season.

Perth Racing's Membership and Marketing General Manager Chantelle O’Sullivan will join Clarke to discuss their struggles to find hospitality staff despite a national outcry for employment.

Perth-based Market researcher and strategic planner Barry Urquhart will also join the show to discuss sales ahead of Christmas.

The Marketing Focus Managing Director will also weigh in on the Australian Post financial saga with chief executive Christine Holgate under the spotlight for spending on hotels, employee bonuses and office plants.

Sunrise Perth correspondent Matt Tinney will be on the podcast to give an update on today's latest news headlines.

After 9.15am, The West Australian's Ben O'Shea will join the show to share some quirky stories from across the State.
