REVEALED: How Sylvia Jeffreys and Peter Stefanovic’s new jobs will leave them like ships in the night as they work conflicting day and night shifts

Sylvia Jeffreys and husband Peter Stefanovic have both more than moved on from the Today show, after being axed from the program in December. 

But unfortunately for the married couple, their respective new jobs on rival networks will leave them like ships in the nights, while working opposing schedules. 

Whereas Peter will be waking up in the early-hours to present Sky News’ morning bulletin from 5am, Sylvia doesn’t go live with Nine News Watch until 8pm.

Peter, 37, landed the role on Sky News in May, as co-anchor on their First Edition from 5am until 9am alongside Laura Jayes. 

He previously explained he has an alarm set for 3am each weekday, in order to travel from their home in Double Bay to the studio in Martin Place and prepare. 

And with such an early wake-up call, it’s likely the news anchor will be sound asleep before wife Sylvia, 33, even goes lives with her evening show.
