Exiting 'Today,' Kathie Lee Gifford Leaves Legacy of Faith

(Facebook/Kathie Lee Gifford)

Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb greet audiences across the nation every morning to discuss the latest news, trends and interview special guests on the Today show. However, that will soon change. On a recent episode of Today, Gifford made what she called a "bittersweet" announcement.

After almost 11 years, Gifford announced that she's leaving Today. She humorously explained, "I've been in this business 120 years and never worked with a more beautiful—more beautiful—group of people, who work every day for four hours of live television, five days a week."

Gifford treasures her time on Today in a very special way as she cultivated a lifelong friend in her co-host, Hoda Kotb. She spoke of Kotb's kindness, saying, "I'm grateful to God for you." Gifford spoke truth from her heart as she continued, "God's used me in your life every bit as much as He's used me in yours, sweetie."
