Lisa Wilkinson has dangled a carrot in the faces of fans and onlookers alike with her latest post on social media.

The veteran journo touched down in Los Angeles over the weekend and while it’s not yet known whether her solo trip to the city is work-related or simply a well-deserved break, it comes just days after US media giant CBS was given the go ahead to proceed with its takeover of Network Ten.

Taking to Instagram, the 57-year-old shared an image of a palm-lined street at sunset while teasing at some pretty major news.

She captioned the nondescript shot: “Sometimes life takes you places you weren’t expecting…but you’re so glad it did. Like here. #LosAngeles. Watch this space…”

Lisa’s followers were quick to comment on the mystery post, with many expressing their excitement for what’s to come.

“Good on you!! For having the courage to take the leap…. onto the next journey,” one wrote, while another added: “Can’t wait to see and hear what is next!”

A third noted: “Our TV Queen reigns! 😍”

What we do know is that Lisa will be joining news and current-affairs program The Project as co-host alongside Carrie Bickmore, Waleed Aly and Peter Helliar in 2018. She’ll also be hosting The Sunday Project.

Nine CEO Hugh Marks recently tossed pleasantries to the curb, reinstating he has zero regrets over Lisa walking away from Today after their falling out over her request to receive equal pay to her male counterpart, Karl Stefanovic.

Speaking to The Daily Telegraph, he remarked, “I don’t regret it at all. It was exactly the right decision for us to make.”

He touched on the topic of gender equality at Channel Nine, adamantly voicing that it is not an issue at his company.

“It’s a really important issue, gender pay equality. The fact that it became something that is not the issue at hand I think was unfortunate. It undermines the good work we’ve done, undermines the debate and the discussion.”

“We got to the point where for the level of work she did for the rights that we were able to access for Lisa, we weren’t able to come to a commercial agreement,” he explained.

“When you have that depth of talent and you come to a discussion like Lisa Wilkinson, you have to eventually go, ‘actually we can’t agree there, but we’ve got three or four, five, six, seven other options’.”

He added: “We’re in a really, really strong position.”
