Nine CEO Hugh Marks thanked Lisa for her contribution to the network.
"Today Show is one of the biggest roles there is in television and requires an enormous commitment from its hosts," he said.
"The partnership between Lisa and Karl has taken the show to the success it is today and we thank Lisa for everything she has done for the show and for Nine over the past 10 years. We all wish her well for the future."
According to The Sydney Morning Herald, Lisa is set to appear regularly on The Project, and will also take on a senior editorial role with the 10 Daily mobile platform. We can't wait to see what the talented star does next.
