Lisa is said to have left her high-profile gig after an explosive report claimed her contract negotiations had been ‘stalled.’

The Daily Telegraph alleged that Lisa was holding out on re-signing until she was granted ‘pay parity’ with Karl.

It was suggested the reason Lisa wanted the same money as Karl, was because he was ‘rumoured to be on twice as much.’

The Australian had previously reported that Karl earns at least $2 million a year, in a three-year contract with a potential bonus that could take his salary to $3 million if ratings were hit.

Lisa was also was said by The Daily Telegraph to have been on a $1.1 million a year contract, with Nine only willing to increase the amount to $1.8 million.

The amount was claimed to have not been enough for her to stay with the network, defecting to Ten where she will co-host news and current affairs program, The Project.

Nine CEO Hugh Marks spoke out on the claims, saying that he offered Lisa $1.8 million, but that she asked for $2.3 million.
