Larry Emdur has renewed his contract with the Seven Network, following interest from rival Nine Network.
The renewal prevents The Morning Show co-host defecting to Nine, where he is well regarded.
Some media reports had him earmarked as a new co-host for Today, allowing Karl Stefanovic to fulfill his ambitions in primetime news and current affairs.
A Nine spokesperson recently denied he was earmarked for the job but acknowledged the former Price is Right host was a versatile performer.
Seven spokesperson Simon Francis declined to comment on the details of Emdur’s new contract, believed to be a lucrative offer.
