Today Show host Karl Stefanovic ready to ‘step up into a new role’ – two years after returning to the Channel Nine breakfast show

Karl Stefanovic returned to Channel Nine’s once-embattled Today show in 2020.

But the 47-year-old host could be preparing to step up into a new role two years after coming back to the breakfast show.

According to Woman’s Day, Karl could be swapping breakfast TV for the boardroom.

‘He’s committed to getting people back into regional Australia – last week he was in country Victoria and NSW with the charity Gotcha4Life’s Mateship Miles Roadshow – he’s passionate about this sort of stuff,’ an insider told the publication.

However, Karl will continue to report on the big stories for the Today show, while also working at 60 Minutes.

Channel Nine refused to comment when contacted by Daily Mail Australia.

Karl was infamously sacked from the Today show in December 2018, before being rehired a year later after viewers didn’t warm to his replacements.

Earlier this month, it was reported Channel Nine had sent Karl to Switzerland to help the network land broadcast rights to three upcoming Olympic Games.

He was dispatched to the Central European country with a handful of top executives to help ‘seal the deal’, reported Mumbrella.

Nine is hoping to score a major coup over Channel Seven by taking its mantle as Australia’s exclusive Olympics broadcaster.

The proposed deal would include coverage of the Paris 2024 Summer Olympics, the 2028 Summer Olympics in LA, and the 2032 Summer Olympics in Brisbane.

Seven had the broadcast rights to the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing, which took place earlier this year, and the Tokyo 2020 Games.

The network paid an incredible $170million to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to secure rights for the past three Games.
