Meredith Vieira Fans Mourn Her 'Today' Exit
"omg I'm sad that Meredith Vieira is leaving the Today Show, I love her," one NBC viewer Tweeted.
Meredith Vieira wasn't the only one who grew teary eyed when announcing her departure from the Today show Monday.
Fans on Twitter mourned the loss of the host, who will be replaced by Ann Curry in June.
"Sorry to learn that Meredith Vieira is leaving @todayshow. I'll miss her perspective every morning," wrote sandrabeckwith on the microblogging site, where Vieira has been a trending topic all morning. (Curry was also briefly trending.)
"no more Meredith Vieira :(" added kaitlinrounds. "omg I'm sad that Meredith Vieira is leaving the Today Show, I love her," posted allisonlynn0122.
One person suggested Katie Couric -- whom Vieira replaced -- return to the show. Couric recently stepped down as anchor of the CBS Evening News to pursue a daytime show.
"NBC's Meredith Vieira leaving 'Today' show. Can we get Katie Couric to come back?" wrote LisaBrooksRadio.
