Damn! Lisa was the best part of that show, Nine has definitely screwed this up for sure.

 

Look at it this way, she's gonna help Ten big time and boy do they need it.

If Georgie Gardner and/or Deborah Knight are chosen to be Karl's new co-host on Today, there could be flow-on effects to the presenting roster of Nine's top rating 6pm news bulletin in the Sydney market with Georgie and Deb being the 2nd (Friday & Saturdays, main Sunday to Thursday fill-in for Peter Overton) and 3rd (main fill-in for Friday/Saturday and whenever Pete & GG are unavailable) in-line newsreaders respectively.

Today AU has dumped longtime host Karl Stefanovic after 14 years. The axing comes after a tumultuous year for the host in which he was recorded making negative comments about his new cohost, producers and others and most recently a star studded Yacht wedding. 

His brother, Pete, was also fired from the weekend edition and Pete’s wife who is the newsreader M-F is said to be reassigned soon as well. 2019 will be plenty interesting for our Today friends down under. https://www.news.com.au/entertainment/tv/morning-shows/karl-stefanovic-could-be-dumped-from-struggling-today-show-report-claims/news-story/11f45e5fc8dc1f1923c300edf0ca7d50

My bet Georgie goes back to the evening newscast she did before returning to Today or 60 Minutes since Karl and his new co-anchor are both leaving 60.

Maybe it's fair enough for Nine to move Deborah Knight on from Today, but personally I see no reason why she should be moved on from her current position as the 2nd in-line presenter of Nine's (mostly) top rating Sydney 6pm news.

 

Although it's fairly clear that neither Georgie Gardner or Deborah Knight are likely to ever become the main presenter of Nine News Sydney anyway, since Peter Overton is currently 53 and seems like he has at least another decade (I would probably say 15 or perhaps even 20 years, given that Peter Hitchener is still presenting the Melbourne 6pm bulletin at 73 years of age) of broadcasting ahead of him.
