Every week.

We know that you were panicking this morning when you heard the news that our beloved Karl Stefanovic would be leaving TV screens and moving to the United States.

This is the man who wakes us up in the morning and makes us laugh to no end. 

Again, @kstefanovic? #9Today

He's the icing on our cakes, the coconut to our lamingtons, cream to our pavlova.

So why would he go to America? We have no idea and as it turns out, neither does Channel Nine!

A spokesman for the television network spoke to news.com.au this morning and stated that Karl isn't going anywhere.

Always lovely chatting to the talented @missyhigginsmusic! #9Today

“Karl is definitely on Today in 2017, alongside the team who have had such a successful year in 2016."

Darren Wick, the boss if Nine News, explained earlier in the year that Karl usually does segments for 60 Minutes over the Christmas break, but will not be doing so this year.

“We don’t want him doing that this year — just have a break. Obviously what he’s working through with his family situation.

"He needs to have a break and just rest and spend time with his family. He’s going to do that and come back fresh next year.”

So next year we'll still have Karl brightening up our mornings and he'll also be hosting a new show called This Time Next Year that focuses on us everyday Aussies.


So really, we'll be seeing much more of the presenter in 2017!
