Today weatherman Stevie Jacob is leaving the weekday edition of the Nine breakfast after 12 years -but remaining within the Nine family.
“After 12 years I have decided to hang up my boots from Monday to Friday, but the good news is our esteemed leader Mark Calvert has come up with a great program to make my work more flexible, so that I can stay with you guys,” he said.
“I will be joining the weekend team and doing some weather there so I’m still part of the family. I just won’t be here with you every day.
“It’s just been a great honour to be part of this show.”
Host Karl Stefanovic, who said he started around the same time as Jacobs, said “You are a true broadcaster and mostly you’re a wonderful human being and a great dad.
“We may not see you every day but I know our audience will be pouring out emotion for you today as well.”
Jacobs, 49, is understood to be spending more time at his property in Vanuatu.
