Only last year, Wark was announced as one of the presenters leading the first-ever all-female team for Newsnight.
With Emily Maitlis, 49, taking on the leading role, Wark was said to be taking on an “enhanced” role on the programme.
Emma Barnett, 35, completed the trio and editor Esmé Wren said at the time: “This is a tremendous presenter line-up that sends out a clear signal about the programme’s growing ambition.
“All three presenters bring substantial political clout and a wealth of expertise across a broad range of subjects.”
Newsnight airs weekdays at 10:45pm on BBC Two.
