Nine has today backed Sylvia Jeffreys as part of its Nine News family, but failed to confirm her as part of the Today show.
Responding to various media speculation, broken first by Peter Ford on 6PR, Darren Wick, Nine’s Director of News and Currents Affairs said, “Sylvia Jeffreys is a huge part of Nine’s plans for 2019 and beyond. She is contracted with Nine until the end of 2020. Any reports or speculation that she is leaving Nine are incorrect.
“She is a gifted, hard-working journalist and presenter and we look forward to continuing to work with her.”
Jeffreys has been with Today since 2012, marrying ex-Nine presenter Peter Stefanovic last year.
Just hours ago, Nine confirmed Karl Stefanovic had been dumped from the show.
Speculation this week also surrounds Richard Wilkins’ ongoing role amid suggestions he may focus on Today Extra. Nine confirmed he would remain part of the Today family and network.
TV Tonight has asked Nine if Jeffreys will remain with Today.
