“This is a difficult day for me. I’m trying hard to hold it together,” Vieira, 57, said. Her co-host Matt Lauer said her final day will be “in a few weeks.”

It has been rumored for weeks that Vieira would be leaving the show, so the announcement did not come as much of a surprise.

“Time is one of those weird things,” said Vieira on this morning’s Today show. “You can never get enough of it and it just keeps ticking away. I know that I want to spend more of mine with my husband Richard and my kids.”

Vieira’s husband has been battling multiple sclerosis and colon cancer for years.

The show’s 14-year news anchor, Ann Curry, will be Vieira’s replacement.
