Just when you thought the rivalry between Nine and Seven couldn’t get any nastier, there are reports that the estranged wife of TODAY host Karl Stefanovic is looking to get a gig on rival breakfast program Sunrise.
According to news.com.au, Woman’s Day reports that Cassandra Thorburn wants to re-ignite her journalism career and is currently in talks with Sunrise.
“Seven execs are frothing at the prospect of employing Cass,” Woman’s Day quotes a network insider as saying.
“There have been conversations with execs at Seven, and they’re talking about giving her a pivotal role.
“Cass was a hugely successful TV producer before she gave it all up to raise Karl’s kids, and Seven knows she’d be a valuable asset.”
Seven declined to comment on the matter when approached by news.com.au.
The reports come only days after Seven and Nine settled an ugly court case over TV ratings.
