Mike Munro Reveals He Was Offered Karl Stefanovic's Job
Mike Munro is a stalwart of the Australian journalism landscape.
So when he speaks we listen.
When he visited us in studio this week, we had to ask him his thoughts on Lisa Wilkinson's sensational departure from the Today Show.
And he had an interesting answer.
"I think it's great that Lisa is going for parity and I think she has every right to be standing up for herself
"As a journalist, i think, I'll be honest, I think she's a better journalist than Karl is - whether she's male or female, I don't care, I think she's a superb person and a wonderful person and deserves everything that she gets.
"Channel 10 are lucky to have her."
Turns out Mike could have been sitting beside Lisa all this time - he was originally offered the male anchor role.
