After spending 5 years as co-host of Today with Matt Lauer, Meredith explained to her audience:

“After months of personal reflection and private conversations between my family and my friends, I’ve decided to leave ‘Today,’ in June.”

Ann Curry, who will be taking over Vieira’s chair,  had this to say about Meredith’s decision to leave the show:

“I feel like the high school computer nerd who was just asked to the prom by the quarterback of the football team,” an emotional Curry said, calling Vieira a “gift to this broadcast” and if it was her choice, Vieira would stay on Today.
