A new report suggests Nine CEO Hugh Marks has thrown his support behind the idea of Karl Stefanovic returning to Today.
The Australian claims Marks is behind change provided Karl takes a big paycut (good luck with that).
Since TV Tonight first floated the duo of Stefanovic and Allison Langdon it continues to gain momentum in media circles. The very next day Langdon featured heavily at Nine Upfronts.
A Langdon swap from Weekend Today could see Georgie Gardner move to Saturdays & Sundays, allowing more time with family. The unexpected factor may be the departure of Today Extra‘s Sonia Kruger from Nine to Seven, tipped to be announced today.
Stefanovic’s contract at over $2m a year is understood to have one more year to run.
Last week Today hit an all-time low during survey.
