Meredith Vieira Tearfully Announces Departure From The Today Show

| Filed under: TV News

We're sad to see her go, but happy she'll get to spend more time with her family.

Meredith Vieira announced her departure from NBC's Today Show on Monday morning's broadcast.

She will be leaving in June and Ann Curry will be stepping up to the plate couch to co-anchor next to Matt Lauer, while Natalie Morales is taking Curry’s place as newsreader.

During the announcement, Meridith cited the desire to spend more time with her family as the main reason for her departure and eloquently said:

“Time is one of those weird things. You can never get enough of it. It just keeps ticking away. And I know that I want to spend more of mine with my husband Richard and my kids Ben, Gabe and Lily."

Wise words! She continued to say she hopes to stay in the NBC family, so we don't think this is the last we'll see Meredith on the network.

Everyone on the show seemed to be very supportive of her decision and had nothing but kind words for her.

Check out the clip from Today above and watch Meredith make the big announcement herself.

Are U sad to see Meredith go?

    Yes. I didn't watch the show but Meredith was the only one with a brain on The View and replaced the gummy mouthed Couric. Her reason for leaving The Today Show demonstrate Meredith is a lady with class.

    I like her but could care less. I think it was funny that this news got out last week, so everybody already knew. Do I believe that she wants to be home with her sick husband? Nope. There is more to this story then meets the eye. Probably has had it with that horrible Matt Lauer. Please dear God do not bring back that Katie Couric. I have seen enough of her to last a lifetime.

    She will be missed. Adios to the TODAY show. I would be unable to watch Ann Curry everyday. She would wilt any erection, no chemistry with anyone else.

    The Today Show "Jumped the Shark" about 5-6 years ago, its no longer anything more than a "Left Wing" spin, joke!

    Ann Curry is a real class act:
    Ann Curry has been hit with a fourth lawsuit over the ongoing construction on her West 71st Street townhouse, which has driven neighbors nuts for years.

    Ann Curry disrupts the National Anthem:
    “TODAY” show host Ann Curry has been known to bully, but RNC attendees never thought she’d pull attitude with them. On Wednesday, our spy said, Curry and her TV crew were “sneaking down the aisles pushing and shoving their way in between the Virgin Islands and Alaskan delegations while the national anthem was playing.” This didn’t sit well with one Alaskan, who told Curry to stop moving. Curry “pointed her finger in the woman’s face and said, ‘Don’t mess with me!’

    Whatever! I always wondered how she got that spot, anyway.

    Why do the talking heads think that people care what they do after their million dollar gigs? She seems like a nice woman, but I don't care that she's leaving.
