  • Karl Stefanovic to leave Today show, Nine says

Darren Wick, Nine's Director of News and Current Affairs, released a statement today, explaining that Stefanovic remains with the network and will return in February to host reality TV series This Time Next Year.

In a statement, Stefanovic said he "never in [his] wildest dreams" thought he would host Today for so long, and referenced the program's ratings and his own personal issues.

The 44-year-old, who is now on his honeymoon in Aspen, after marrying Jasmine Yarbrough last week, has been with the channel for the past 14 years and will still host This Time Next Year which begins in February.

His axing comes a day after his brother, Peter Stefanovic resigned from the network and two weeks after the show's boss, Mark Calvert stepped down.

"For over 14 years Karl has been at the centre of the Today show bringing his unique personality and perspective to the day's news and current affairs". I can't thank Nine enough for the opportunity.

"Nine and Karl Stefanovic have agreed it is time for him to step off the TODAY show", Wick said in a statement.
