Channel Nine has confirmed Today newsreader Tracy Vo will no longer be appearing on the breakfast show.

The 37-year-old journalist has chosen to move back to Western Australia to be closer to her elderly parents during the coronavirus pandemic.

She will be replaced by sports reporter Alex Cullen for the foreseeable future. It hasn’t been confirmed if or when she will return to the Today show.

Tracy will instead be presenting Nine News Perth from Wednesday, as well as hosting the local weekend news. 

‘I felt it was the best thing to head back west to be close to my family at this uncertain time,’ Tracy told TV Blackbox on Monday.

‘I just want to make sure everyone stays safe, looks out for each other, and of course, always practise social distancing.’

Rumours of her departure from Today emerged after she was featured in a promo for Nine News Perth on Sunday night. 

Tracy had previously commuted from Perth to Sydney, but border shutdowns and mandatory isolation policies have prevented her from travelling between the states. 

Nine has left the door open for Tracy to return to the Today show, but it seems likely she will be staying with her family for some time.
