The Today Show celebrated 40 years on-air this week with Karl Stefanovic making a point of how great the show's current team is during an interview.

Seemingly appearing to snub former co-host Lisa Wilkinson, Karl told 9Honey this week that the current team, which includes co-host Allison Langdon, was "the best".

"It's actually really wonderful," he said. "This is the best it's been, in my experience, and everyone's really good mates off-camera."

However, the presenter, who hosted the show with Lisa for 10 years, then added, "That's no slight on the previous teams, it's been a really wonderful couple of years for us, even though we've gone through real extremes in what has been happening in the world."

Karl explained that with Covid, sometimes the Today Show team were the only ones in the whole network who were in the studio.

He joked that the team "got to experience a lot of each other" in that time, with Brooke Boney quipping, "Maybe too much!"

Lisa returned to TV for the first time since her infamous Logies speech last month to wish Today a happy 40th birthday.

The former Today show host told viewers, "A big piece of my heart with always stay right there with the Today show family and all the years we spent together at breakfast."

Lisa's Logies speech led to the trial of the man accused of raping Brittany Higgins being delayed with ACT Supreme Court Justice Lucy McCallum being forced to move the start date of June 27 to avoid prejudicing the jury.

Speaking on the Today show, Lisa spoke of the day Karl famously came to work after the Logies still drunk, slurring his words and giggling.

"That fateful morning... the whole of Australia knew Karl had to be drunk if he was going to keep insisting live on air that I was beautiful," she joked. "I don't miss the early hours or the sleep deprivation, but I do miss the people.

"I thought to myself if I can last six months in this chair, I'll be doing well. So to have shared that desk every morning for closing on 11 years is an honour I still pinch myself about."

Lisa left the show in 2017 over a pay dispute, she now hosts The Project on Ten.
