Musical chairs at Nine

Nine’s Today Show has a new host from later this
month, though no-one is being flicked – well, not yet anyway.

Co-host Tracey Grimshaw is going away for a month and Leila McKinnon is standing in, re-uniting her with Karl Stefanovic.

McKinnon was pushed out of Today ten days ago and moved to the 11am newsreading shift, but Nine said she would fill in if Grimshaw went on holiday.

Elsewhere in Nine’s newsreading line-up, it looks like Mike Munro will be reading the 4:30 news on Monday, Tuesday and Friday, plus the 6pm news in Sydney at the weekend, so Nine is searching for someone to help reduce his workload.
