David Koch takes swipe at Today rivals

They’ve endured a bitter rivalry over breakfast TV ratings for more that a decade.

And Sunrise’s David Koch hasn’t been able to resist the opportunity to take another swipe at Today, mocking rumours Karl Stefanovic and Lisa Wilkinson were not friends.

During an appearance on Fitzy and Wippa’s Nova breakfast show on Friday, Kochie quipped he and Samantha were ‘still together, both privately and professionally’ – unlike Karl and Lisa.

Samantha and Kochie went up against  Ryan ‘Fitzy’ Fitzgerald and Michael ‘Wippa’ Wipfli in an epic rap battle.

After the radio duo were declared the winners, Fitzy remarked: ‘The only other time we won was against Karl and Lisa.’ 

Not skipping a beat, Kochie swiped back: ‘At least we are still together, both privately and professionally.’

The Sunrise veteran’s remark caused his co-star Samantha to dissolve into laughter, with Fitzy and Wippa appearing surprised but amused by Kochie’s comment.

It’s not the first time Sunrise have seized on the chance to make fun of Today’s highly-publicised woes. 

During a Sydney charity event in October Samantha remarked that her and Kochie were ‘very good value for money’ and their bosses had ‘plenty of money’.
