Claims in the current form Today let host Karl Stefanovic & # 39; lose $ 6 million with salary & # 39; with Easter
Karl Stefanovic was dropped from the Today show at the end of last year.
And now a new report claims that network bosses for him & # 39; gunning & # 39; are and the 44-year-old want to exclude by March, when he completes the last film of his film on This Time Next Year.
The Daily Telegraph quotes an alleged source, who claims: "Karl must film the last segments of his show This Time Next Year at the end of February, and that's what they're going to do most of March and then they want him out."

That step could lead Karl to lose his $ 6 million salary, paper claims, due to his remaining two years on the Nine Network.
A representative for Nine has denied the report and told the newspaper: & # 39; It's just not true & # 39; and they were & # 39; hoping to keep working with Stefanovic all year round. & # 39;
Reasons for the push, according to the newspaper, include Karl's decision to publish photos of his sumptuous Mexican wedding to Jasmine Yarbrough in rival media outlet, Who Magazine – allegedly without first requesting permission.

The recent "hacking" scandal, in which Karl claimed that a hacker of the mystery had broken into his social media and negative comments about the Today show & # 39; liked, would also have led to anger and disbelief among network bosses.
Additional disagreements among execs were reportedly caused by Karl's meltdown on Christmas Day, when he abused a photographer at the Gold Coast airport – an exchange that was caught on video.
The Channel Nine star looked furious and raged: "Take your f ** king camera and go out that f ** king-door, it's f ** king Christmas. & # 39;

& # 39; Why are you trembling? Have you committed a disease? Are you sick in your head? [Have] Do you have a job? It is Christmas day. Go home! & # 39;
Daily Mail Australia contacted Channel Nine for comments.
On December 19, six days before the airport incident, Karl was fired without mercy as co-anchor of the Today show after 14 years in the role.

The dramatic upheaval in the breakfast problem started when the Nine Network announced that Peter Stefanovic, 37, would leave the weekend edition of the show at the end of last year.
Ousted shortly thereafter was Peter & # 39; s brother Kar, who had been dropped out of his hosting slot during his honeymoon with Jasmine Yarbrough during the Today show.
The exit of Peter & # 39; s wife Sylvia Jeffreys (32) followed. With news, she will be transferred from the Today show to a prime time role at Nine.

Death at Nine did not defeat Richard Wilkins either, with the old entertainment reporter downgraded and the Triple J news reader Brooke Boney brought on board.
Richard – who has been in the role for almost 25 years – will be transferred to Second-tier Show Today Extra but remains the entertainment editor at Nine.
Early January Deborah Knight unveiled the breakfast program with Georgie Gardner, replacing Karl, while Tom Steinfort will be the newsreader of the show, replacing Sylvia.
