After more than two decades with NBC, Natalie Morales said her final goodbyes to her Today viewers on Friday. Morales announced her departure from The Today Show in October, and she said her final goodbyes to her Today viewers on Friday.

“Greetings, viewers…”

“I knew it was an honor to be a part of your morning tradition, the most sacred time, from the moment I stepped in front of the camera and into your living rooms,” Morales said during her final show.

“As I witnessed history with you, I’ve had a front-row seat to moments that captured our hearts, moments I’ll cherish for the rest of my life.”

“I traveled the country with some of America’s most powerful leaders, covering incredible stories like the rescue of 33 Chilean miners who had been trapped underground for 69 days.”

“We saw a miracle together,” she continued.

“I’ve been to two royal weddings and presided over the first royal birth in decades in London.”

My highlight reel is forever filled with events.

So many amazing people have touched our lives and entrusted us with their incredible journeys.”

“You and my Today family have given me a place I will forever call home,” Morales said, thanking them for “all those mornings and the lifetime of memories we now share.” Morales joined Sheryl Underwood, Amanda Kloots, Jerry O’Connell, and Akbar Gbajabiamila as co-hosts of The Talk in October.

Morales will be featured on Dateline until the end of the year.

Morales said in a statement after being announced as the newest panelist, “It’s an extraordinary opportunity to be joining this team at The Talk.”

“I’m really excited to be joining Sheryl, Amanda, Jerry, and Akbar, and I love the new energy and direction.”

I’m looking forward to having a lot of fun while discussing the topics of the day, and I can’t wait to get started.”

Following the departures of Carrie Ann Inaba, Elaine Welteroth, and Sharon Osbourne, The Talk has had almost a full panel shakeup in the last few months.

Inaba and Welteroth left the show in August, and Osbourne was fired in March after receiving backlash for comments she made to Underwood while defending friend Piers Morgan’s treatment of Meghan Markle.

CBS broadcasts it on weekdays at 13 p.m.
