meredith vieira to probably leave today show

Which anchor's gonna leave us next? DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT, ANDERSON!

Earlier this week, we learned that Katie Couric will be leaving CBS Evening News, and NOW another anchor is expected to move on…

Meredith Vieira of NBC's Today is reportedly planning on leaving her co-anchor position when her contract expires later this year.

According to a source, Vieira is "weary of the demanding early morning hours." Also, her husband has had health issues, which she's said will be "a factor in considering her future on the program."

Here's what a source has said on the subject:

"NBC is doing everything they can to convince her to stay."

And here's what NBC has said about it in a statement:

"The Today show anchors are currently under contract and firmly in place."

Looks like the only way Vieira MIGHT stay at her position is if she's offered a one year deal. Guess we'll see how that plays out…

Will U miss Meredith Vieira when/if she's gone?

    Absolutely would miss her.



  2. 2

    and THAT'S how someone ages gracefully. She looks human and not like a plastic doll.



  3. 3

    I Love Mer & Matt! Boo :(



  4. 4

    I will give you credit Perez. Your copy and paste skills from a few days ago are phenomenal.

    It won't matter they will just be replaced by more liberals to help push the leftist agenda.

    Re: Chappy – Totally agree. Our standards of so-called beauty have shifted to something so artificial. It is so nice to see a woman of her age that doesn't have duck lips and a stretched frozen face.



  7. 7

    I honestly think some botox would do her some good… but that's just me. I guess we got used to not seeing that many wrinkles on people's faces when they're in the spotlight. She's still beautiful….



  8. 8

    Good riddance you old left wing hag. We have lowered the standard for "journalists" so LOW that we have nothing but brainless twats like this POS.



  9. 9

    Yes I would miss her…she's real and not trying to be sexy like so many other anchors feel they need to do. She is a wonderful interviewer. Unlike that Ann Curry who could not be any more awkward! Lol. Don't leave the Today show Meredith! But I understand that family is more important.

    I've never been a Meredith fan and have always felt that there isn't any chemistry between her and Matt. I think Ann Curry got screwed when she didn't get the co-anchor job of the Today Show… I hope this time they do the right thing and put Ann in with Matt, they're good together.

    maybe they can get rid of Elizabitch Hasselbitch on the View and bring back Meredith!!



  12. 12

    God, Perez, could you have picked a worse picture of her? Natural lighting does her no favors. I wonder if she smokes. Her face is much more wrinkled than most women her age, celebrity or not.



  13. 13

    My mom is 84 and never has had cosmetic surgery and I still get compliments on how beautiful she is. She's got amazing bone structure. I also get compliments on how young I look and I learned the secret years ago…it's called water. Drink lots of it and your face stays hydrated. And I don't know if Meredith smokes or not, but her skin is definitely looking a little parched. Water, people, and lots of it!



  14. 14

    Anderson is leaving. I guess you missed that.



  15. 15

    I like her, and wish her happiness.
    I wonder when the old troll Barbara Walters will step aside.
    The View is such a snore fest!



  16. 16

    I would definitely miss Meredith Vieira on the Today Show!
    But she must do what is in the best interest of her & her family.



  17. 17

    jesus! thats a horrible picture. i didn't even bother reading the story, the pictures too distracting.

    Re: fedup1964 – Maybe they're all leaving because of the stifling corporate control. 50+ networks have been replaced with six mega corporate owners. That's not a left wing thing. Journalists with standards get let go.
