Kerri-Anne Kennerley was one of 25 employees to be sacked from Channel Ten as a cost-cutting measure two weeks ago.

And on Sunday, the former Studio 10 presenter looked to be taking the news in her stride as she perfected her swing on a Sydney golf course.

The 66-year-old veteran journalist was suitably dressed for the occasion in a striped sweater, teamed with a blue zip-up jacket on top, beige pants and snakeskin shoes.

Kerri-Anne swept her signature blonde locks back off her face, and was sun-smart, accessorising with a chic straw visor.

Known for experimenting with fashion, she added a touch of bling in the form of Chanel stud earrings, and wore a pair of two-toned gloves.

Kerri-Anne looked to have worn minimal makeup, drawing attention to a radiant and blemish-free visage.

The TV personality engaged in conversation with a male companion as she walked across the putting green.

The sighting comes two weeks after Channel Ten made 25 employees redundant, including Kerri-Anne, newsreader Natarsha Belling and weatherman Tim Bailey. 

On Studio 10 last Wednesday, Kerri-Anne fought back tears as she acknowledged that the coronavirus pandemic had made it necessary to tighten the budget.
