Reports have indicated that Morales will continue to work for NBC as the west coast anchor for the "Today Show."
As the “Today” show co-anchors honored Kathie Lee Gifford’s final show on Friday, they also paid tribute to Morales’ 20th anniversary with NBC News.
“We are cheering for you from afar,” Savannah Guthrie said to Los Angeles-based Morales from New York. “There is no one who has done it with more intelligence, more grace, more goodness, more kindness, more class than you. We love you.”
Now living in LA to co-host “Access Hollywood,” Morales, 46, praised her TV family from the West Coast.
“I love you so much, and I’m so blessed to have the support of an incredible family there in New York, here in LA and all over the world, so the ‘Today’ show truly is family,” said Morales, before adding, “and of course my family at home who support me every time I’m out on the road.”
