He revealed his departure will be a gradual one as he reduce his number of days on air over the next two years until his contract expires. 

It was revealed he signed a contact extension in October locking him in until the end of 2024, but has negotiated for ‘greater flexibility’ in his schedule.

Kochie inked the deal at a meeting with Seven Network CEO James Warburton, during which he expressed his interest in retiring.
