Karl Stefanovic's Wife's VERY Controversial Career Move
According to reports, Cassandra Thorburn is eyeing a key role on Sunrise, the major rival to her estranged husband Karl Stefanovic's Today show.
Woman’s Day reports that Thorburn, a successful journalist before becoming a stay-at-home mum, is currently in talks with the seven network's breakfast program.
This could be a shocking development in both her split with Stefanovic - which comes only days after Seven and Nine settled a nasty feud over ratings that almost went to court.
“Seven execs are frothing at the prospect of employing Cass,” Woman’s Day quotes a network insider as saying.
“There have been conversations with execs at Seven, and they’re talking about giving her a pivotal role.”
Thorburn recently signed with celebrity agent Max Markson, having dipped a toe back into her former profession with an open letter published on PopSugar in response to an opinion piece about her choice to become a stay-at-home mum.
“Cass was a hugely successful TV producer before she gave it all up to raise Karl’s kids, and Seven knows she’d be a valuable asset,” the network insider says.
It’s unclear whether the role on Sunrise would be on-camera or behind-the-scenes, and seven declined to comment on the matter when approached.
Could Thorburn be set to join Sam and Kochie on the Sunrise couch?
