Kyle Sandilands LEAKS who is replacing Tracy Grimshaw on A Current Affair

Kyle Sandilands appeared to confirm Allison Langdon is replacing Tracy Grimshaw as host of A Current Affair after the veteran journalist hung up her boots on Thursday.

Speaking to Grimshaw on his KIIS FM radio show on Wednesday, the shock jock said he knew it was the Today show host.

Kyle claimed he’d had a private conversation with Langdon’s Today show co-host Karl Stefanovic, who has been asking him for advice on a potential replacement for her.

‘I feel like I know, because I’ve been speaking to [Karl] Stefanovic,’ he told Grimshaw after grilling her on the topic of her replacement.

‘Well, let me just tell everyone it’s Ally. I don’t mean to bust Channel Nine’s bubble.’

Sandilands said Stefanovic didn’t tell him their chat was ‘confidential’.

‘Maybe that was a personal chat? I don’t know… But he didn’t ask me not to say anything,’ he continued.

Grimshaw remained coy when pressed on the rumors as to who will be her replacement, saying every candidate for the job is 'an exemplary person'

Channel Nine have yet to confirm who Grimshaw’s replacement is and Sandilands quite possibly could have been joking and merely trying to get the long-running ACA host to reveal who the actual candidate is.

‘I certainly hope Channel Nine would replace me with a dud,’ she joked.

‘But unfortunately they do replace me with someone excellent.’

‘I can’t possibly give you a hint, but you’ll know very soon,’ she added. ‘I wouldn’t be surprised if you know next week.’

Last week, Sandilands grilled Langdon, 43, when he appeared on Today after her week-long absence from the breakfast show.

The co-host awkwardly dodged questions about her rumored move.

‘Are you doing the A Current Affair or not?’ Sandilands asked.

Taken aback by the question, Langdon joked in response: ‘Well, I’m going to do the Today show, I’m going to do A Current Affair, I’m going to coach the Wallabies and I reckon Dan Andrews might offer me a ministry.’

But Sandilands didn’t back down, and continued to push for a proper answer.

‘Let’s stop the speculation. Are you doing A Current Affair? Just tell us!’ he said.

Langdon remained tight-lipped about her potential move to prime time, hinting she could never ‘leave’ Stefanovic alone on the Today show.

Sandilands asked one more time, ‘Are you doing it or not?’ to which Langdon responded: ‘No.’

‘So you’re not doing it?’ he asked again.

‘Far out!’ Langdon exclaimed, which prompted Stefanovic to say: ‘With all this questioning, he should be doing A Current Affair!’

Langdon, who first joined Today in early 2020, is said to be eager to move to ACA because the hours are easier as a working mother.

While Nine has not made an announcement about the new host of ACA, the network is believed to only be considering candidates from within its own ranks.

This rules out The Project host Carrie Bickmore, who is leaving Channel 10 at the end of this month and was previously linked to the high-profile role.

Nine’s political reporter Chris O’Keefe has also been ruled out as a candidate after it was announced on Sunday that he would be moving to 2GB.

If Langdon does get the ACA job, she can add her name to an illustrious list that includes broadcast titans like Ray Martin, Mike Munro and Jana Wendt.

Coincidentally, her husband Mike Willesee Jr is the son of the late former ACA great Mike Willesee who hosted the program’s first three seasons and, later, a further five.

For A Current Affair, it will be the first new host since Grimshaw stepped in for Ray Martin in 2006.

Grimshaw announced her departure from ACA in September after 17 years on air.
