Network Ten have confirmed another high profile exit today as Rob Canning, the sports news reporter and former presenter and host on Sports Tonight leaves the network.
Canning's move is not linked to the current round of redundancies.
As a result of the changes to the News and Operations department Rob Canning will be leaving TEN.
Canning has been with Ten since 2000 and was held out as a face for the future and an "invaluable asset" when announced as a part of the weekend News at Five presenter team at the end of last year.
The news comes after the axing for fellow news anchors Bill Woods, Ron Wilson, Helen Kapalos and Craig Smart within the past week.
However, a network spokesperson announced Canning's exit today.
"As a result of the changes to the News and Operations department Rob Canning will be leaving TEN."
"Rob has been with TEN for several years and most recently has presented the sport on TEN’s Weekend News bulletin.
"He is a highly regarded presenter and reporter and we wish him the very best for the future."
