Following her shock departure from Nine's Today show, Sylvia Jeffreys' latest role has finally been revealed.
In a statement shared with news.com.au, a Channel Nine spokesperson confirmed the accomplished reporter will be working on the network's prime time news program, A Current Affair.
"Sylvia is working on some projects close to her heart across a few departments, including A Current Affair. We'll have more to announce soon," the statement read.
The current affairs program has become an Australian TV staple, first airing on our screens back in 1971 and scoring a whopping 22 TV WEEK Logies since.
Sylvia is yet to comment on her new role but no doubt fans will be thrilled to see the popular star back on our airwaves imminently.

The news Sylvia is joining the ACA team, anchored by TV Gold Logie nominee Tracy Grimshaw, follows a challenging few months for the 32-year-old and her husband, former Nine presenter Peter Stefanovic.
In December, both Peter and older brother Karl Stefanovic were axed from their respective gigs at Nine in the aftermath of the Ubergate scandal.
Karl was shown the door after 14 years on Today but will continue working on the network's This Time Next Year series, while Peter cut all ties with the network, leaving his post on both 60 Minutes and Weekend Today.

Shortly after, Sylvia left her role as the Today newsreader to pursue a "brand-new" venture within Nine.
Since his sacking, Peter has been on the job hunt and recently took an ad out in the media newsletter Social Diary promoting his skills and availability.
"Peter Stefanovic has been on the ground for many of the world's most recent historic events," the notice, which was posted on behalf of the 37-year-old's manager Sharon Finnigan, stated.
Before adding: "Peter is now available for any upcoming relevant opportunities including ambassador roles and MC/Hosting opportunities."
"Peter has covered everything from the Iraq war, Presidential elections, Golden Globes and many more over the course of 14+ years. In 2016, Peter released his first autobiography about all his experiences as a foreign correspondent titled Hack in a flak jacket."
