“Sadly this is my last day hosting classic music on 2UE. The station has been leased to another company who is changing the format but I have had an absolute blast, learned so much about music and have improved ratings by 176% since I started,” he wrote.

“Huge thanks to everyone who has tuned in and best of luck to the new station moving forward. Keep on rocking.”

Channel Nine’s Today show caused a ruckus in 2019 when they axed a number of cast from the show, which included Steven, who was replaced by Sydney reporter Tim Davies.

“They got rid of almost everyone. It’s another bloodbath,” a source told news.com.au at the time.

Speaking at the time, Steven said: ​​“Today has been my home for almost 15 years and I love the program and my colleagues dearly.

“Sadly I can’t commit to the future travel requirements of the job and have to put my beautiful daughters first.”

Steven is dad to two girls, Isabella and Francesca, with his ex-wife Rosie Jacobs whom he met on the set of the morning show.

Brooke Boney is the only person from the revamped 2019 line-up to remain, holding down her role as the entertainment reporter in 2020.
