After stepping down as TODAY’s newsreader last year, the Nine Network kept the future of Sylvia Jeffreys role within the company a secret… until now.

Channel Nine has confirmed that Sylvia Jeffreys will be redeployed across ‘several departments’ in 2019.

According to a Nine spokesman, “Sylvia is working on some projects close to her heart across several departments, including A Current Affair.”

The popular newsreader was one of the casualties of TODAY’s 2019 shake-up, which also saw the axing of Karl Stefanovic, Tim Gilbert, and her husband, Peter Stefanovic.

In a formal statement issues by Channel Nine, Jeffreys reflected on her time on the breakfast program, stating: “I’ve loved and embraced every minute of my Today show chapter and I’m thrilled to sink my teeth into a brand new project.

“Opportunity often knocks when you least expect it and I’m ready to dive right in to what’s ahead of me.”
