Channel Nine sports presenter Warren Tredrea has walked away from a $300,000-a-year job by refusing to comply with the network’s Covid vaccine mandate.

Tredrea’s tenure at Nine’s Adelaide newsroom came to an end in December after he declined to get the Covid-19 jab and publicly spoke out against mandates.
The former AFL player, 43, has left behind a high-profile job with an estimated annual salary of between $250,000 and $300,000, reports Adelaide Now.

Tredrea previously said of the vaccine on talkback radio station FiveAA: ‘People have the right to make their own call. That’s the same as anyone walking the streets of Adelaide, you’ve got your choice to make. It is a confidential right, absolutely.’

The Nine Network introduced its vaccine mandate in December, requiring all staff to have at least two doses. 
Tredrea’s replacements at Nine News Adelaide were announced earlier this month.

Corey Norris will host Nine’s weekend sports bulletin from next month, and former weekend presenter Tom Rehn will take over Tredrea’s weekday role.  
The new position will be a homecoming of sorts for Norris, who hails from South Australia but spent the last 10 years at Nine News Melbourne.
Norris told Adelaide Now it was ‘unfortunate’ to see Tredrea quit Nine over the station’s vaccine policy, but respected his decision to stand by his ‘morals’.
‘I don’t have any issue with his decision; he’s made that and he’s stuck to it and good luck to him,’ he said.

‘I’ve got a lot of time for Tredders, he’s a great bloke… I think everyone would love to see him back in the industry at some stage but I guess that’s more up to him than anyone else.’

Tredrea, who considers himself ‘pro-choice’ on vaccines, hadn’t been on air since Nine introduced its double-vaccination policy in December.   
Following weeks of speculation about his future, the network confirmed on January 8 that the former Port Adelaide player had left Nine News for good.

‘Nine can confirm Warren Tredrea will not be presenting sport on our Adelaide bulletins into the future,’ a spokesperson said.
‘We are disappointed to see Warren leave but we wish him well.’

Tredrea has previously spoken about his ‘pro choice’ stance on vaccinations and in September revealed he hadn’t been immunised. 

‘I’m fully vaccinated… but I’m not Covid vaccinated. Everyone is entitled to what they want to do because it’s your body,’ he told FiveAA’s Rowey’s Sports Show. 
Tredrea had served as Nine’s sports presenter since 2013 and also appears on FiveAA during the AFL season.
