It's official, we're finally getting one of the Stefanovic brothers back on our screens!
In an exciting announcement pertaining to ex-Channel Nine reporter Peter Stefanovic, the TV alum will grace Australian screens once again, this time via Sky News in a breakfast show role.
Speaking to the Daily Telegraph on Sunday, Peter said he was "excited" about the new role.
"It's a great challenge, a wonderful opportunity and a fantastic privilege to be asked to be part of the Sky News team," he said.
Peter's new role comes after a five month television hiatus after he was dropped from Channel Nine in December.
The shock announcement was shortly followed by another announcement about his brother, Karl Stefanovic. Karl also left his role as co-host of the Today Show, which he worked on for 14 years. Peter himself was at Nine for 15 years.

"Peter has decided to explore new opportunities and is looking forward to spending weekends with his wife," a Nine spokesperson said in a statement at the time.
"He has been a respected member of the Nine News team and Weekend Today, and we wish him all the best for the future."
Peter said at the time that he was looking forward to spending weekends with his wife, fellow Nine presenter Sylvia Jeffreys.
"I've had an amazing time at Nine being a foreign correspondent, news reporter and covering some amazing stories for 60 Minutes," he said.
"I'll miss my friends at Nine very much, it has been a huge privilege to work alongside so many great people."

In a statement from Sky News, the network announced Peter's new role, stating: it has "signed Peter Stefanovic and Ticky Fullerton as it boosts its on-air anchor line-up and expands its political and business news coverage."
Peter's new gig will start as of Monday, July 1, where Peter will team up with Sky News anchor Laura Jayes to deliver breaking and national affairs news.

According to reports, Peter and Karl had a conversation in an Uber, slamming Nine and several of their colleagues, which the driver overheard and then spilled the details to local publications.
The Uber driver allegedly heard Peter say: "I hate working news, I'm dying on the inside and it makes me feel horrible."
Peter later told the Herald Sun that he was "ashamed" he had got his network into trouble. "I got my wife and brother into trouble; and I took that really hard," he said at the time.
