Georgie's Pay Packet 'Half' What Karl Gets For Today Show

After Lisa Wilkinson left the Today show due to an alleged pay dispute, it's now been revealed that her replacement, Georgie Gardner, will be on around half the pay that Karl Stefanovic currently receives.

While Gardner's updated pay packet is nothing to be sneezed at, with claims she'll be making close to $1 million annually, it will still be substantially less than what Karl currently rakes in.

The Daily Telegraph has revealed Georgie will be earning substantially more than the $750,000 that was reported elsewhere earlier in the week.

However she will still be falling a long way short of Stefanovic's annual wage.

@kstefanovic you're hilarious. Sort of. Can't wait to work with you again my friend @thetodayshow xx

Despite the huge wage disparity, Georgie told TV Week she's looking forward to teaming up with Karl once more.

'Karl really is at the top of his field and while yes, he can be a larrikin, he can sometimes go too far, he can be a loose cannon, all of that, but he is also incredibly entertaining,'

'He is a consummate presenter of the big breaking news stories, he is so skilled, he has this wonderful ability to get to the essence of the story and disseminate the information live and unscripted like no other, quite frankly,' Georgie said.
