‘I suppose they say a change is as good as a holiday: Karl Stefanovic breaks his silence following shock sacking from Nine’s Today show and says he has an ‘excitement about what’s to come’

Karl Stefanovic has broken silence after being ousted from his hosting gig of 14 years on Wednesday. 

The 44-year-old sounded surprisingly optimistic speaking to The Daily Telegraph on Friday. 

Revealing he was ‘excited’ to see what was next after his exit from The Today show.

‘I suppose they say a change is as good as a holiday: Karl Stefanovic (pictured) breaks his silence following shock sacking from Nine’s Today show and says he has an ‘excitement about what’s to come’

Karl told the publication:  ‘I suppose, as they say, a change is as good as a holiday, I’m looking forward to getting back to work. 

‘I’m moving forward with a sense of excitement about what’s to come’. 

He added that he was taking comfort in being with his loved ones and enjoying the holiday season. 

‘I’m happy to be home with my family and friends. I’m looking forward to Christmas with loved ones. I’ve got a lot to be thankful for,’ the TV host told the paper.

It’s the second time Karl has made a comment after his shock exit from Today, but the first was rather flippant. 

Just hours after the shock announcement was made by Channel Nine, the veteran presenter put on a brave face and tried his best to mask his feelings about being cut from the 2019 breakfast show lineup.

According to The Daily Telegraph, Karl, who was on his honeymoon in Aspen with new wife Jasmine Yarbrough when the news broke, said at the time: ‘I am looking forward to getting back to the sunshine.’

His remarks come after Karl said in official network statement on Wednesday: ‘For the last 14 years I’ve co-hosted the best show on television. I can’t thank Nine enough for the opportunity. 

‘I never in my wildest dreams thought I would be good enough to host this grand show for so long.

‘Thanks to our viewers mostly, you are what matters most. It’s been a tough time. Thanks for hanging in there. I look forward to seeing you in another capacity at this great network soon.’
