Not even Lisa Wilkinson is safe.

Today show host Lisa Wilkinson is one of the most popular personalities on television, but it seems not even she thinks she’s safe after the difficult year Nine had.

While her morning show claimed a big win in the ratings, Lisa has admitted she worries someone will turn around and fire her any day now.

“I come in every day thinking, ‘Any day now someone is going to pat me on the shoulder and say, ‘Okay, you’ve had enough fun now, time to pass the baton to the next one’,” she said.

“Fortunately it hasn’t happened and for as long as (this job) lasts I’m going to make the most of it. There is no better job in television.”

Lisa and her co-host Karl have become beloved around the country for their on-screen antics and fun-loving style, but with such a difficult year behind them, some are worrying Nine could be looking at a big shake up next year.

So should Lisa be worried? If she’s feeling cautious about things she’s likely got a whole host of over 60s behind who know just how it feels to worry your job may be taken away from you any day now.

Many baby boomers still in the workforce say they’re scared they will be pushed out for a younger person to come in and take their job, while others flat out say this has happened to them before.

Would you be sad to see Lisa go if she left the Today show? Have you ever been forced out of a job to make way for someone younger?

    With some of the tripe that has come out of her mouth of late it would not be a minute to soon to get rid of her and a few others of her ilk, that are that full of themselves. Natalie Barr is another!

    I would be very angry with Channel Nine if that happens. Lisa is a good role model for any woman as she is intelligent and she can interview with the best of them.
    I look forward to watching Lisa & Karl every day as I start my morning along with the rest of the crew. I miss Stevie and his antics but I can see he wants to spend more time with his family and who could blame him?
    Other than Georgie or Deb I wouldn’t be interested in another female hosting the show.
    There’s too many airheads out there, whilst they have the looks and confidence, you can’t buy experience.
