Stevie parted ways with Channel Nine in 2019, after being replaced as the Today show’s weather presenter by Tim Davies. 

He had been a fixture of the program on and off since 2005, and had spent much of 2019 as an in-studio weatherman.

While his exit came amid a staff reshuffle, Steve insisted it was his decision to leave.

Taking to Instagram after the news broke, he claimed the real reason he was leaving was to spend more time with his daughters.

‘Sadly I can’t commit to future travel requirements of the job and have to put my beautiful daughters first… They are my world, my life, my joy,’ he wrote at the time.

However, things fell apart within a few months.
