Where is Karl Stefanovic, and what’s wrong?
Those are the questions on Today Show fans’ lips today, after the host disappeared mid-broadcast this morning. Adding to the mystery, Nine has confirmed he is now on leave – with the network seeming to dodge a direct question about the reason for his absence.
Richard Wilkins and Tim Gilbert were forced to step in this morning, after Karl left screens before 7:40, never to return – and with no on-air explanation.
‘Why did Karl disappear halfway through this morning’s show?’ one fan asked on the show’s Facebook page.
When news.com.au asked the network for an explanation – Nine offered this response, blatantly dodging the issue of what’s happened to him.
‘Karl is on leave for the next few days. He will be back on air at the end of next week. Ben Fordham will be filling in for him.’
