Today was Meredith Vieira's last day on Today, and it was definitely bittersweet to see her say goodbye after spending five years on the show. After all, she's been such a good role model every morning, showing women across the country that it's cool to be smart, fit and — best of all — yourself. Read on for our three favorite memories of Vieira on Today!
Top 3 Favorite Meredith Vieira Moments
1. Going make-up free. We loved when she went on air sans make-up back in 2010. So liberating and refreshing to see!
2. Running through fountains with Ann Curry. Yesterday Ann Curry said her favorite Meredith Vieira moment was when the two of them ran through fountains together, giggling like school girls. We love how — even though she's on TV — she is obviously passionate and having a good time. That's really what life is all about (not to mention that running around like that is totally being active!).
3. Ice skating with Will Ferrell. Vieira may have fallen while ice skating, but that didn't stop her from keeping on going and laughing about it. We love her tenacity and willingness to try anything!
For those sad about Vieira's departure from Today, have no fear. Reports say that her new role with NBC News will be announced in the coming months.
