The source claimed that the family is happy in Melbourne, and therefore Shane is reluctant to move for the role.

& # 39;[Shane] rejected the first offer, so they raised it, but he did not want to uproot his family – it would take a lot of money to get him out of Melbourne, & # 39; they explained.

If Shane does not eventually accept the opportunity, Channel Nine can allegedly completely remove the role of sports presenter, amidst rumors they also consider Clint Stanaway.

Meanwhile, in 2016 Tony made the headlines for a very uncomfortable meeting with the glamorous WAG Rebecca Judd, 35.

Tony surprised Rebecca by getting back to work for a kiss on her last day before she left on maternity leave for her role as a weather presenter.

Rebecca instinctively drew away and screamed before giggling in fainting.

Realizing that he had been turned away in front of the camera at the time, Tony crossed his arms and said: "Okay, well, this is going well", while his face turned red.
