Tracy Grimshaw reveals her next move after her final day on A Current Affair and hints she may make a return to TV in 2014

Tracy Grimshaw’s final episode of A Current Affair will air Thursday night and the television veteran has no intention of returning to work anytime soon.

The journalist, 62, discuss her plans after 16 years on the popular investigative news show during an interview on The Kyle and Jackie O show on Wednesday, and confirmed she was taking a well-deserved break for at least one year. 

She said she wanted to ‘reset her work-life balance to purely life next year’ and taking 2023 off from work completely.

When Kyle Sandilands asked the TV star if she would be moving onto The Project or another news show, Tracy said it wasn’t on the cards for her just yet.

‘I’m having a year off and I’m not doing anything for an entire year. I’m resetting my work-life balance to purely life next year,’ she said.

‘But then, you never know what I might pop up doing in 2024.’

It comes a week after the former Today host was spotted arriving in Melbourne to film her ‘very special hometown episode’ which aired live last Wednesday. 

Tracy announced she was quitting A Current Affair during one of the Monday night episodes in September.

‘Normally, right about now we’d be telling you what to expect tomorrow night but lately I’ve personally been thinking longer term, and I have some news that I wanted you to hear from me before you hear it from anyone else,’ she began.

She continued: ‘I’ve decided to finish up with A Current Affair this year. It’s been a big decision and before the gossip websites start telling you rubbish, I want you to know it’s been my decision alone and I’m not being shoved out the door by the boys’ club because I’m too old.’

Some rumours say the veteran 2GB and Nine News presenter Deborah Knight will be taking her place on A Current Affair.

However, Kyle Sandilands appeared to confirm it was Today show’s Allison Langdon when he interviewed Tracy on his radio show on Wednesday.

Allison also awkwardly dodged questions about her rumoured move to A Current Affair while interviewing Kyle live on air last week.

The 43-year-old had just returned to Today that morning after taking more than a week off. 

She shifted uncomfortably in her seat as she refused to confirm or deny the speculation – despite the shock jock repeatedly pushing for an answer.

'I'm having a year off and I'm not doing anything for an entire year. I'm resetting my work-life balance to purely life next year,' she said. 'But then, you never know what I might pop up doing in 2024'
