Sunrise, Today Tonight and The Morning Show are having an overhaul of presenters, according to reports.

Various sources have claimed that Melissa Doyle is ready to leave her hosting role on Sunrise to move to current affairs show Today Tonight, while Today Tonight's current host Matthew White has been tipped to present Sunrise with Kylie Gillies.

Gillies currently fronts The Morning Show with Larry Emdur, but Samantha Armytage is rumoured to be taking over her role. David Koch is also believed to be in the running for a primetime hosting job next year.

Sunrise producer Tim Davies wrote on his Twitter page: "The dawn of a new era as Sunrise breaks up!!! WTF?! The headlines tmrw (sic) ARE NOT to be believed."

Seven Network boss Peter Meakin has also denied some of the changes, telling the Herald Sun: "I thought [Melissa Doyle] was going to Sunday Night, isn't that the rumour? I have not been in any meetings last week... she is not going to Today Tonight."

In September, Doyle was first rumoured to be quitting her role on Sunrise, with a source claiming that she is sick of her early morning starts.
