“They are good sports... they were two of the first people to actually send me a message saying congrats and good luck,” Allison said.
“Deb gave me a call... yeah, they were wonderful.”
As for Karl, the Nine star joked that Georgie and Deb should be thankful they no longer have to wake up at the crack of dawn for work.
“They are not in the building anymore... while we are, because they actually get up at a reasonable hour now,” he said.
Since their controversial sacking, Georgie has returned to presenting Nine news on Friday’s and Saturdays, while Deborah helps fill in on Nine News Sydney during the week and has her own afternoon radio show on 2GB.
Earlier this week Karl was also asked for his thoughts on another controversial topic: his ex-wife Cassandra Thorburn.
The Today show host separated from Cass in 2016 after 21-years of marriage. Just five months later he met and fell in love with shoe designer Jasmine Yarbrough, 35. The pair married in 2018 and are currently expecting their first child together.
Speaking to Neil Mitchell on 3AW yesterday, Karl admitted that his highly publicised divorce affected his career.
“Personally, it was a bit hard because I thought a lot of people do go through relationship difficulties and, unfortunately, for me that was in a very public way, but that’s what happens when you’re a public person,” Stefanovic told 3AW.
“But I thought, ‘Well hang on, a lot of people go through this, and why is mine such a big deal?’ I still don’t know why it was.
“I got divorced, I did find love again, and I’m sorry if people are offended by that, but it’s made me really happy.”
