Social media’s gone into overdrive since the news broke of veteran presenter Lisa Wilkinson leaving the Today show.
It’s believed to be over a pay dispute, after Nine reportedly wouldn’t match her salary to co-host Karl Stefanovic’s $2 million.
It’s understood, Nine offered her $1.8 million, but she walked away.
The 57-year-old is heading to Channel Ten after signing a deal to be part of The Project from January.
Lisa’s co-hosts on the Today show expressed their shock at her sudden departure, but vowed to support her in her new role.
The news was also a hot topic on the MIX 106.3 Breakfast show this morning.
