Melissa Doyle looks as she takes her daughter for a driving lesson

Channel Seven announced Melissa Doyle was leaving the network on Friday after 25 years of service.

And on Monday, the veteran broadcaster, 50, looked rather downcast as she took her daughter Natalia Grace Dunlop on a driving lesson in Sydney.

The former Sunrise presenter appeared to be in low spirits as she displayed L plates on her white Volkswagen before embarking on the lesson with her daughter, 16.

Melissa dressed casually in tight black legging, a white T-shirt and a purple coloured winter jacket.

She completed her outfit with a pair of comfortable black sneakers and wore her hair in a ponytail.

After taking Natalia on a driving lesson, the 50-year-old hopped back into the driver's seat and drove her daughter to school.

On Friday, Seven announced that Melissa had left the network after 25 years.

She'd hosted several of Seven's flagship programs including Today Tonight, Sunrise, 7NEWS, Sunday Night and The Latest.

Her departure is believed to be the result of the economic downturn caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, which has hit Seven particularly hard. 

According to Radio Today, Melissa will continue her role hosting Nova-owned radio network smoothfm on Saturday and Sunday mornings.
