The Project: Lisa Wilkinson’s three replacements are revealed

Lisa Wilkinson’s THREE replacements on The Project are announced – as she flees to Los Angeles after her disastrous Logies acceptance speech

Lisa Wilkinson will be replaced by a rotation of three different panelists on The Project as she continues to take time off air following her controversial speech at the Logie Awards last month.

Radio host Rachel Corbett, former ABC presenter Georgie Tunny and Studio 10 anchor Sarah Harris will fill in for Wilkinson on alternate nights, alongside regular hosts Waleed Aly, Carrie Bickmore and Peter Helliar, reports The Australian.

Wilkinson, 62, isn’t expected to return to the Channel 10 current affairs show until August, despite previous reports she was coming back in July.

The former Today show anchor has been absent from live broadcasts since June, but she has filed pre-recorded segments for The Sunday Project.

Wilkinson was ‘quietly and securely whisked out’ of Australia recently and will be based in Los Angeles for the coming weeks.

She will spend time in ‘Hollywood and New York’ where she will interview ‘musicians and A-list film stars’ for upcoming packages for The Project.

‘She’ll be dialling in from her new-found Hollywood base as The Project’s roving reporter,’ The Australian reported on Sunday. 

The trip will be combined with annual leave Wilkinson already had planned.

Wilkinson was originally scheduled to be back on the live panel in mid-July, but will now remain away for at least a month longer.

Wilkinson was taken off the air after she spoke of an upcoming court case during her acceptance speech at the Logie Awards last month.

The trial in question was rescheduled until October as a result.
