Meredith Vieira has tongues wagging that she might be leaving the “Today Show” on NBC.
It seems as if Katie Couric isn’t the only woman considering making a big change professionally. There are rumors Meredith Vieira may be leaving NBC’s “Today Show” soon.
Sources said Meredith has not announced her decision but Today news anchor and Dateline NBC host Ann Curry is rumored to be the frontrunner to replace Vieira.
Meredith Vieira, 57, was a cohost on The View for nine years before joining the Today show in 2006.
The talk show hosts $11 million annual contract expires in September.
Vieira has openly spoken about her husband Richard Cohen’s battle with multiple sclerosis and her desire to spend more time with him and their three children.
“I’ll know when it’s time to go, and I’m not afraid,” Vieira said in October. “If I were to leave Today at the end of next year because it’s time for me, I wouldn’t jump to another show. I would look forward to not working, to traveling with Richard and carving out time for us.”
