Nine tight-lipped as Tim Gilbert confirms final Today appearance

Tim Gilbert’s final appearance on the Today show will take place tomorrow, wrapping just over 4 years as Sports Presenter but will he remain with Nine?

“What a beautiful bunch you all are just confirming Friday will be my last day on @thetodayahow we are going to have a blast for the rest of the week like we have for the last five years it will be nice to unplug the alarm for a while,” he said on Twitter.

Gilbert joined Weekend Today in 2009 and has been with Nine for 22 years.

It isn’t clear what’s next in store. Nine has refused to confirm if Gilbert is remaining with the network, declining to comment if he is even an employee.

Nine has announced Tony Jones is joining the show, to present Sport from Melbourne on Mondays and Fridays. On Tuesday – Thursdays Sport will be read from the Today show desk in Sydney, with Jones to appear for big AFL news.

The new-look Today begins on Monday.

  1. A big mistake, Tim would be the most popular guy at 9. If he is so bad why let him host the Today show the past two weeks – his effort has been very professional and terrific since since the new format has been announced. Have been a loyal Today fan but not now with Tim gone. Sport from Melbourne Monday and Fridays will not last and I have a feeling the new format will also be a failure.Tim is liked because he communicates with an audience and has little or no ego – he is down to earth .

  2. Throwing the baby out with the bath water ?
    “On Tuesday – Thursdays Sport will be read from the Today show desk in Sydney. To eventually extend into Monday & Friday.
