News anchor Natarsha Belling may be heading for Today show after Channel 10 sacking

Earlier this week, Channel 10 sacked at least 25 stars, including journalist Natarsha Belling, in a brutal round of budget cuts. 

But Natarsha, 45, might be quickly picked up by another network, with a report on Friday claiming that Nine’s Today show are eyeing the beloved talent.  

The Daily Telegraph claimed that the morning program is considering adding the veteran to their lineup to replace the recently departed Tracy Vo. 

Newsreader Tracy, 37, left the Today show in April, announcing that she was returning to Perth to be closer to her parents, just four months after moving to Sydney to join the breakfast program.

Multiple sources say she took advantage of a clause in her contract that gave her the option to return to Nine News Perth within six months if she ‘wasn’t happy’ at Today.

She is believed to have made the decision after feeling increasingly isolated from her family in Western Australia during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Natarsha’s shock sacking comes after more than 13 years of working for the network. 

In a post shared to Instagram on Friday, the news reader hinted that there were greener pastures ahead. 

She wrote: ‘I have been overwhelmed with all the love and support so many of you have shown me over the past four days.

‘It’s been an absolute pleasure being part of the Network 10 family for more than 22 years and I want to thank the Network for all the wonderful opportunities I’ve enjoyed over the past two decades. 

‘During that time, I’ve worked with some of the very best in the TV business who have inspired me with their skill, passion and dedication.

‘2020 has been such a challenging year for so many and it has in many ways reminded us about what truly matters in life. I’m sad to leave, but excited about the new chapter ahead. I can’t wait to share with you what’s coming up!’
