Vieira Leaving "Today Show"

Meredith Vieira announced Monday morning that she will be leaving The Today Show in June, and Ann Curry has been named the show's new co-anchor.

Vieira has been the co-anchor of the news broadcast for nearly five years and will continue with a new role at NBC News that will be announced in the coming months.

Curry will anchor the show with longtime anchor Matt Lauer.

"Meredith is a remarkable woman and broadcaster who in five short years has left an indelible imprint on morning television,” said NBC News president Steve Capus. “While we will miss waking up with her each morning, we are working together on developing her next chapter at NBC News.”

    We will miss Meredith but Congratulations to Ann Curry she deserves it and has for a long time. She is a real trooper doing any dangerous or risky thing & don't know by choice or elected she did it.

    Meredith should not have ever been on Today. Ann Curry should have gotten that position five years ago. I also agree with Southern Bell that Jenna Wolf should be the next to go SOON. Matt would be a good vacancy too.

    I am sorry to see Meredith leave but I admire her for leaving to be with her husband. God Speed, Meredith, and good luck in your future endeavors.

    I think that NBC should get rid of Jenna Wolf on Sunday Today Show. She is so stuck-up with herself that she is not a team player.

    Who cares??? I never liked her and quit watching once Katie Couric was gone.

    Ann "Hokey" Curry to replace. What a joke! She always seems soooo fake. Why don't they keep her at the newsdesk or better yet - on assignment at the South Pole...Give Nat or Savannah a shot.
