“18-year anniversary co-hosting @sunrise7. It has been an unbelievable experience and privilege,” he wrote.

“Thank you for the opportunity. Looking forward to what’s ahead.”

His post featured snaps of him hosting the show alongside his co-host Samantha Armytage, as well as images from travelling assignments he was sent on. 

People took to the comments to ask Kochie : “You get the sack?' and 'Whattttttt. You are leaving?”

A Channel Seven representative has denied that David is leaving Sunrise, telling Daily Mail Australia: “Kochie said it best himself in response to a number of viewer comments on his original Instagram post; ‘There’s a few more years in the old bloke yet’”.
