Adding further proof to the TODAY show shake-up, Sportsbet confirmed the comedian is in the top spot for the gig at $1.75
“We reckon Andy Lee would make a brilliant anchor for breakfast TV. At the moment hosts of Today and also rivals Sunrise spend most of the morning giggling at each other. At least with Andy he’s genuine,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Rich Hummerston.
There's no word whether Hamish has been approached by Nine for the breakfast show.
But it wouldn't be a stretch to see him pair up with his iconic bestie.
Currently, Hamish and Andy have their Nine show: Hamish and Andy’s Perfect Holiday.
While Hamish, 37, will return next year for Lego Masters.
It's been revealed that Channel Nine are wanting to change their current line-up: Hosts Deb Knight and Georgie Gardner with Tom Steinfort (who replaced Sylvia Jeffreys) and Brooke Boney (who stepped into Richard Wilkins role).
And it is believed the network want former host Karl Stefanovic and ex-Weekend TODAY's Allison Langdon to take the helm.
"Karl has agreed to take a massive pay cut to go back to Today. He is cap in hand and begging," a source told New Idea.
According to the source, Karl will partner with 60Minutes host Allison Langdon and together the pair have been chosen to try and boost ratings.
"They love Allison, and Karl and her are actually really good friends."
