Langdon will replace Tracey Grimshaw as the host of A Current Affair, forcing her to leave the morning slot alongside co-host and good friend Karl Stefanovic.
Stefanovic told Langdon it had been an honour to be her friend and colleague.
“The history (of ACA) is profound. You will be taking the chair of Mike Willesee,” he said.
“Like this, you will make this role your own – you will, your brilliant own. Let’s rise and make a toast to Ally.
“Thank you, Ally. You make us better,” he said.

Fellow presenter Alex Cullen said he would miss her professionalism.
“You genuinely care about people. Despite what some people might think, you care about us – your colleagues, your viewers. Who’s going to get our birthday cakes?” Mr Cullen said.
There was an outpouring of love for the presenter on social media, with fellow Nine stars racing to congratulate her on Instagram.
Fellow Today show presenter Brooke Boney expressed her sadness in a comment on Langdon’s early-morning post.
“I’m not ready,” she wrote.
The Block interior designer Darren Palmer also congratulated her.
Langdon started on the Today show alongside Peter Stefanovic in January 2018, where the due hosted the weekend shows.
But it was her on screen friendship with Stefanovic throughout her time in the early morning weekday slot that had viewers willing to wake up early with them.

But, in true friendship form, Langdon wasn’t able to escape Stefanovic’s pranks before she left.
Earlier in the morning, footage of Ms Langdon’s car being towed was shown to her live, and another segment of her desk being cleaned out also showed cob webs, McDonald’s and other humorous items scattered around her workspace.
