Peter Stefanovic leaves Channel Nine after 15 years
Peter Stefanovic and Channel 9 have mutually decided to part ways after 15 years.
Nine released a statement late on Tuesday afternoon saying Stefanovic has recently decided to explore new opportunities and is “looking forward to spending weekends with his wife”.
It comes after a turbulent year at Nine for Stefanovic, after an Uber driver aired a conversation between him and brother Karl to the media, in which the pair discussed other staff Nine staff members.
Peter has been a longstanding member of Nine News, both as a presenter and foreign correspondent, Weekend Today and 60 Minutes.
In the statement, he 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.”
It comes after brother Karl’s much publicized wedding to Jasmine Yarbrough in Mexico last weekend, which Peter and wife Sylvia Jeffreys attended.
