Well that didn’t take long. What a couple of months? Yes Meredith Vieira was given that big send-off when she decided that getting up at 3AM every day to co-host the Today Show on NBC became a bit much. Now with her only gig as host of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire which takes her less then six months to complete a full production season, Meredith Vieira is back in business over at NBC.
NBC announced today hat Vieira will be a Special Correspondent joining Rock Center, the new news-magazine headed to NBC and hosted by Nightly News anchor Brian Williams. And one of her biggest projects that will bring her back to the Today Show will be her integration not only in the prime-time program but the upcoming summer Olympic Games in London.
Her new duties will also have Vieira involved in other NBC News duties including NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams.
But all will take place during regular business hours which was her beef at the Today Show.
NBC News President Steve Capus calls Vieira a “world class journalist and a captivating storyteller.”
Yes, a good move for NBC as bringing back Vieira is a comfortable personality for the network.
