“I’m only sorry that I never got the chance to say goodbye to you all…the incredibly supportive, engaged, opinionated, clever and wonderfully diverse audience of Today.

“Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the fun years we shared, and for welcoming me into your homes each morning. It has been an absolute privilege.

“PS. This pic is from Karl’s and my very first publicity shoot way back in May 2007. Look at us, we were babies!!”

NINE confirmed Lisa’s departure in a statement posted on Twitter last week.

“Nine today confirmed we have been unable to meet the expectations of Lisa Wilkinson and her manager on a contract renewal for a further period,” the statement read.

“We express our gratitude for Lisa for her 10 years with the Today Show and are disappointed we find ourselves in this position.”

Wilkinson has since revealed that she will be making the move to Network Ten to join The Project and other hosting and editorial roles from January 2018.
