At the 2007 Logies, Lisa Wilkinson was faced with a momentous decision. Should she stay at Network Seven and join The Morning Show or should she jump ship and become co-host of the controversial Today show?
When Larry Emdur introduced the pair that night they just clicked. Wilkinson was waiting in line at the bar, stewing over her decision, when Emdur approached her.
“Aren’t you the most talked-about girl in the room?” he joked.
“I don’t know what to do,” Wilkinson replied, “I haven’t even met Karl Stefanovic yet”.
So Emdur turned to the man standing behind him and tapped him on the shoulder.
“Lisa,” he said, “I want you to meet Karl.”
“We made each other laugh,” Wilkinson told Stellar. “I went to bed that night deciding I was going to do this thing.”
