The Australian and The Sydney Morning Herald claim a decision could be made as early as this week.

Ten declined to comment on the rumours when contacted by B&T.

“We do not comment on rumours and speculation,” a Ten spokesperson told B&T.

The future of Ten’s breakfast program Wake Up has been under speculation recently, The Sydney Morning Herald reports morning and evening news bulletins could be axed as well, bringing about up to 50 job losses.

According to the SMH (Sydney Morning Herald) a senior Ten executive told Fairfax Media details could be released later this week.

A second source reportedly told the media giant Ten’s staff were “in for a world of pain” and that many behind-the-scenes crew such as cameramen had already started looking for new jobs.

Earlier this week rumours that Kerri-Anne Kennerley could make a breakfast comeback to host a revamped Good Morning Australia in place of Wake Up made the rounds.

However, Kennerley had told the Mail Online she had heard the rumours but there were no confirmed plans as of yet.
