Lisa Wilkinson Speaks Out About Why She Left The TODAY Show

Ever since she fled her coveted spot on the TODAY Show, due to a rumoured failure to come to a salary agreement, we’ve wondered how it all went down.

Now, fresh from her trip to Los Angeles, where she was rumoured to be meeting with CBS big wigs, Lisa has spoken out to news.com.au, saying, ‘You can see women have had enough,’

'...the gender pay gap, domestic violence, homelessness is on a huge rise in this country, particularly for women over 50.'

Lisa also revealed that she sees this time as the moment women are beginning to feel ‘the wind behind them’ off the back of power moves that make a point - such as her shock move from the TODAY show.

It comes after it was reportedly fed up of being paid $1.1million a year compared to Karl Stefanovic’s reported $2 million annual salary.

Lisa’s former colleague, Georgie Gardner, is set to be her replacement on the TODAY Show.

Lisa is currently enjoying some time off before joining the panel on The Project on Channel 10 in 2018.
