‘Goodbye weekend today,’ she began solemnly.
âAnd just like that, it’s kind of like my time on the weekend today. Honestly, this job was a dream and it was almost impossible to walk away from it.
She said she had tried working seven days a week, but the workload had become too heavy for her, which is why she was leaving.
âI tried with every part of me to work 7 mornings a week, but it’s about time I got some balance. I’m really so sad to be leaving, âshe continued.
Farewell: “And just like that, it’s the end of my time on Today’s Weekend.” Honestly this job was a dream and it was almost impossible to walk away from it, ” Lauren wrote on Instagram

She went on to say that she found herself in a number of sticky situations on the show – which she will fondly remember.
“I have milked camels, been ridden by a cow, hiked mountains, almost frozen in Lake Wanaka, driven a monster truck, and attacked more birds than I can count.”
She has finished: ‘I loved every moment of it. Thank you for allowing me to share your weekends with you. It has been an absolute privilege.
Lauren announced that she would be leaving the breakfast show to focus on her radio career in an interview with the Herald Sun this week.

âI have managed to juggle seven mornings a week for the past five months and have tried with every part of me to make this possible so that I can continue to do this work, but unfortunately we all need a work / life balance, ‘she said.
“So I say goodbye to Weekend Today, which is really sad, and it’s a job I have desperately wanted for a very long time.”
She continued, “So quitting a dream job is never easy, but I’m very grateful to have this opportunity.”

Lauren has been juggling her weekend commitments today with her job on KIIS 101.1 Breakfast Radio since August.
It comes after Phillips was forced to apologize on air to the mother of a murdered child earlier this month.
Aspiring dancer Rachel Barber was just 15 when Caroline Reed Robertson strangled her to death with a telephone cord as part of a plot to steal her identity in 1999.

Phillips disgusted the family and friends of the murdered dancer when she laughed on KIIS 101.1 while listening to a podcast describing her brutal murder.
She told listeners earlier this month she was unaware that the audio the producers played during her conversation was taken from the CASEFILE series of true criminal podcasts.
The conversation saw Phillips describe how she used the podcast on Rachel’s tragic murder to lift her spirits.

“Am I a psychopath? Phillips asked during conversation with co-host Jason ‘Jase’ Hawkins, outraging Elizabeth Barber, her friends and family.
Choking back tears, Phillips said she never intended to use audio from an actual crime to accompany her live chat.
âAll of us here on the show were devastated when we realized what we had done. The show takes full responsibility and our audio source background checks should have been more thorough, âsaid Phillips.
