Reports were circulating this morning with suspicions about Sonia Kruger’s job at Channel Nine after outrage was sparked over her comments regarding Muslim immigration and “reverse discrimination” on Today Extra.
Concerned that the TV host had been “shipped off”, the Sydney Morning Herald got in touch with Channel Nine management to confirm her fate.
However, Channel Nine has told the publication that Kruger has not been taken off screens — rather, she is on annual leave.
According to the network, her leave had been requested well before she made any of her controversial comments.
For the past fortnight, Kruger and her family have been holidaying, partly to celebrate her birthday.
