After the recent departure of Mark Calvert and the appointment of Steven Burling as director of morning television, Nine has made its first major change – a Stefanovic has departed.
But after endless speculation about the future of Karl Stefanovic at the broadcaster, has Nine dropped the wrong brother? Many are wondering how it is that Peter Stefanovic has no future at the station while his more controversial big brother does.
After revealing the parting of the ways yesterday, a Nine spokesperson said:
Nine and reporter Peter Stefanovic have mutually decided to part ways after 15 years.
Peter has decided to explore new opportunities and is looking forward to spending weekends with his wife.
He has been a respected member of the Nine News team and Weekend Today, and we wish him all the best for the future.
Peter Stefanovic said: “I’ve had an amazing time at Nine being a foreign correspondent, news reporter and covering some amazing stories for 60 Minutes. I’ll miss my friends at Nine very much, it has been a huge privilege to work alongside so many great people.”
