He's back!

Peter Stefanovic has announced his return to the screen in a role with Sky News.

The former Channel 9 star announced he will be co-anchoring the flagship breakfast news program with the current First Edition anchor Laura Jayes

“I’m excited. Thrilled about it, actually,” Stefanovic told News Corp.

“It’s a great challenge, a wonderful opportunity and a fantastic privilege to be asked to be part of the Sky News team.”

"Absolutely thrilled to join @ljayes as the new host of Sky News First Edition," Peter wrote on Instagram.

"Laura is one of the best political interviewers in the country and I look forward to working alongside her and the team. I start July 1 and hope you can tune in! @sylviajeffreys has already given me her alarm clock."

The new appointment comes after a mass exodus from the network including Peter's wife Sylvia Jefferies and brother Karl.

At the time, Peter said it had been a “tough year" and that it was “embarrassing”.

“Not just because of the damage I might have caused to my employer, but also to my family as well,” he said.
