Meredith Vieira: Her Last Day Sendoff on Today

by at . Comments

The Today Show said goodbye to co-anchor Meredith Vieira this morning.

With everybody from co-host Matt Lauer to production assistants wearing custom “We Heart Meredith” t-shirts, there wasn’t a dry eye in Rockefeller Plaza.

Viewers were treated to a two-hour Vieira tribute that included highlight montages galore, sendoffs from Jack Black and Jay Leno, a performance by Carole King and a choreographed lipsynch to a certain Journey classic.

In short, if Vieira had to leave Today, it was perfect.

Matt Lauer Loves Meredith

Don't we all, Matt. Don't we all. You'll be missed, Meredith!



Never easy to fill the shoes of someone as popular as Katie Couric was when she exited the Today Show. Meredith succeeded by being herself and demonstrating genuine affection and respect for her colleagues and the viewers. I missed having coffee with her this morning!
