It’s been a huge week in the Wilkinson-FitzSimons household.
On Monday night, Lisa Wilkinson announced she would be leaving Nine’s The Today Show, after ten years on air. Within the hour, it was announced she would be moving to Network Ten, where she will co-host The Project, and participate in other collaborations in 2018.
But in the wake of one of the biggest shakeups in Australian TV history, a complex conversation emerged about pay equity – given rumours that Wilkinson was paid half that of her co-host, Karl Stefanovic, and this was the ‘expectation’ Nine were ‘unable to meet’ in her contract negotiations.
