Andrew O'Keefe will no longer be hosting Weekend Sunrise.
Channel 7 confirmed this morning that O'Keefe has decided to step away from his reporting and hosting duties after 12 years on the morning show.
"The ideal job is doing work you love with people you love,” O'keefe said. “And for 12 years it's been my great pleasure to work on one of the most lively and thoughtful shows on commercial television with some of the warmest, funniest, most committed people I know."
The 46-year-old will continue to host quiz show The Chase Australia and work on other projects within the 7 Network.
The morning show's longest serving host will also spend more time with his family.
"There are many overdue camping trips and too many unseen soccer matches to catch up on. So, to all the beautiful people with whom it's been my profound pleasure to work, and to all the viewers who've been our friends for so long, thank you and adios. See you at the much more civilized hour of 5pm.”
The new Weekend Sunrise host will be announced in the coming weeks.
