Change of scenery! Today mainstay Natalie Morales is set to cohost NBCUniversal's Access Hollywood and Access Hollywood Live, a source confirms to Us Weekly.
Morales, 43, who joined Today in 2006, is currently the morning show's news anchor for the 7 to 9 a.m. segment and cohosts the 9 a.m. hour with Willie Geist, Al Roker and Tamron Hall. She will continue to appear on the first three hours of NBC's long-running morning show and on Dateline.
Us reported last week that current Access Hollywood host Billy Bush is set to leave the syndicated newsmagazine for a regular role on Today's 9 a.m. hour.
This continues a time of transition in the morning-show world. Michael Strahan announced on Tuesday, April 19, that he is leaving Live With Kelly & Michael — where he has cohosted for four years alongside Kelly Ripa — and moving to Good Morning America. His final Live episode will air on Friday, May 13.
