Lisa Wilkinson Announces Move To 'The Project — THAT WAS QUICK

Share

"We express our gratitude to Lisa for her Ten years with the Today Show and are disappointed we find ourselves in this position".

Nine, for its part, has disputed the idea that Wilkinson's departure was about pay parity, telling The Telegraph that Stefanovic earned more because of his additional duties, such as his commitments on 60 Minutes. But it seems that eagerness wasn't enough, and neither was the pay packet.

The news came as a shock to everyone, including her Today Show co-host Karl Stefanovic, who addressed her departure on the show earlier this morning.

I have some news.

Jeffreys, Nine entertainment editor Richard Wilkins and sports host Tim Gilbert all spoke about Wilkinson, who announced her departure from Nine last night.

Lisa was understood to be on $1.1 million per year, but Channel Nine had increased it to $1.8 million before discussions stalled.

Wilkinson announced the shock news on Twitter on Monday night, saying she had done her last show.

Many other celebrities congratulated Lisa, especially given it's widely rumoured her reason for leaving the network was because Nine refused to pay her the same salary as her male co-host.

"She will work alongside hosts Carrie Bickmore, Waleed Aly and Peter Helliar, as well as hosting The Sunday Project".

"Thanks so much to everyone for all your lovely messages". This statement is from [Channel Ten].

"Lisa Wilkinson is one of the most respected journalists and television presenters in Australia and we are thrilled that she has agreed to join Ten's fantastic stable of on-air talent", said Ten's chief content officer, Beverley McGarvey.

He started the show by saying, "No obviously a very big day for us yesterday here at the show and a very big day for Lisa Wilkinson".

"She handled those brutal, brutal hours with grace, beauty, intelligence and a wicked, wicked sense of humour". "We all wish her well for the future", said Nine CEO Hugh Marks. Oh, the calmness! And thank you for all of your support. "Whatever you do and wherever you go, you do so having left your mark on this show, and on this man".

"And many of our wonderful producers and team members and hard workers behind the scenes have asked us to pass on their love and appreciation for your decade of waking up on TODAY". Should Channel Nine have made a different decision?
