Karl Stefanovic's Wife's VERY Controversial Career Move

According to reports, Cassandra Thorburn is eyeing a key role on Sunrise, the major rival to her estranged husband Karl Stefanovic's Today show. 

Woman’s Day reports that Thorburn, a successful journalist before becoming a stay-at-home mum, is currently in talks with the seven network's breakfast program.

This could be a shocking development in both her split with Stefanovic - which comes only days after Seven and Nine settled a nasty feud over ratings that almost went to court.

“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.”

Thorburn recently signed with celebrity agent Max Markson, having dipped a toe back into her former profession with an open letter published on PopSugar in response to an opinion piece about her choice to become a stay-at-home mum.

“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,” the network insider says.

It’s unclear whether the role on Sunrise would be on-camera or behind-the-scenes, and seven declined to comment on the matter when approached.


Could Thorburn be set to join Sam and Kochie on the Sunrise couch?
