Another Today show star confirms they are leaving

Another Today show star confirms they are leaving

Tim Gilbert has announced his departure from the Today show marking January 12 his last day.

On Tuesday, the 51-year-old journalist took to Twitter to share the news, saying: “What a beautiful bunch you all are just confirming Friday will be my last day on @thetodayshow.”

He continued saying: “We are going to have a blast for the rest of the week like we have for the last five years it will be nice to unplug the alarm for a while.”

After making the announcement, fellow Today show colleagues offered words of encouragement to the breakfast show star.

Deborah Knight wrote, “Tim you are a treasure,” and Trevor Long kept it simple with a fist-bump emoji.

Gilbert has been with Nine Network since 1996.

His departure comes after a complete switch in the line up for the morning show, with media insiders describing the shake-up as a “bloodbath”.
