Nine signs Karl to new contract

It seems Today host Karl Stefanovic still loves the smell of morning coffee after signing a new deal with Nine.

The Sydney Morning Herald reports he has a new multi-year deal but there’s no detail on just how much it is worth.

This follows the Sunday Telegraph reporting in May that negotiations with Nine had “stalled because the new contract is believed to offer less than half his former $3 million-a-year.”

The long haul appears to be paying dividends. While Sunrise won the week at 259,000 to Today‘s 222,00, Nine quietly bagged another win in Brisbane.

Last week Nine reported a $575m loss with earnings of $396.7m.

  1. There’s a lot of on air presenters about to see what that dramatic clock sit COVID hysteria they drummed up does to their salaries. Seven slashed salaries by 20% and are cutting loose names (Mel Doyle), Ten have slashes their rosters and now Nine is about to trim back.

  2. Perhaps 9 haven’t taken up The Voice for next year so that they can keep Karl if he is getting a multi million deal, they can’t afford both now can they?
