Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, December 11, 2018

NBC News made the surprise announcement on Tuesday that Kathie Lee Gifford is leaving the "Today" show, where she has been the longtime host of the final hour of the Peacock Network's flagship morning program for more than a decade. "Kathie Lee is generously staying with us through the show's next anniversary, April 7, 2019," NBC News president Noah Oppenheim said in a memo to staffers obtained by Fox News. "We will have much more to share before then about our plans for that hour, which will, of course, continue to include Hoda." "As we all know, Kathie Lee's plate has been overflowing lately with film, music and book projects, and after giving us eleven extraordinary years, she's decided to focus her attention full-time on those other creative endeavors," Oppenheim said. Gifford's announcement sent viewers into a frenzy on social media as they already started discussing her potential replacement.

"When we first launched this incredible hour, no one could have predicted the lightning (or rather, wine) in a bottle that is Hoda & Kathie Lee. Whether in studio or on one of their many road trips, they have delighted our audience with their distinct brand of fun, friendship and adventure," he continued. "During that time, Kathie Lee has cemented her status as one of the most enduring and endearing talents in morning television. In short – she is a legend."
