Last year, the day Meredith Vieira left the cast of the Today Show was very sad. Her co-hosts, Matt Lauer, Ann Curry, Al Roker, and Natalie Morales all sported I Love Meredith shirts, and each offered a mini-tribute to the departing host. Matt spoke about her small ego, Curry talked about how they’re family, and Morales waxed poetic over Vieira’s general amusingness.
Here are some of the best moments of Meredith Vieira on the Today Show.
In this video, Meredith gets into an icing fight with Matt. It’s actually really funny and goes to show that a morning TV show doesn’t necessarily has to be very serious.
Meredith accidentally drops the S bomb on air, while she tries to play a car-driving simulation game.
Ice and Will Ferrell. Sounds like fun. Meredith went ice-skating with comedy actor Will Ferrell. Although she is a great anchor, she is not that great of an ice-skater.
Watch as Meredith challenges Hillary Clinton into a talk about politics. Meredith had guts to pull this short interview through.
Skating doesn’t work? Why not try dancing? Here, Meredith dances with Apollo Ono.
Meredith was one of the hosts for NBC’s coverage of the 2012 Olympics. Both Vieira and co-host Matt Lauer were criticised for their NBC coverage of the opening ceremony for the 2012 London Summer Olympic Games.
