Natalie Morales just announced that she is leaving NBC after 22 years and her next move has seemingly been revealed already.
The 49-year-old journalist is currently the west coast anchor for Today and she’s also a correspondent on Dateline.
Natalie first joined the NBC News family in 2002 as an anchor and correspondent for MSNBC. She then joined Today in 2006 and went on to appear in other NBC news programs as well. From 2016 to 2019 she was an anchor for Access Hollywood.
“To my Dateline and Today show families, it’s very hard to say goodbye… and we all know in this business it’s never goodbye but see you later. I’m eternally grateful for the support and deep friendships that will remain no matter where our paths lead. I have so much to be thankful for and for every one of you who helped me get here… muchísimas gracias mis amigos,” she wrote in a note to staffers, according to Deadline.

Now, Variety has shared that Natalie is reportedly joining The Talk.
The site says that sources close to the situation say that she’ll take over one of the empty host chairs on the CBS daytime show.
Natalie would join Sheryl Underwood and Amanda Kloots, as well as new hosts Jerry O’Connell and Akbar Gbaja-Biamila on the show.
The Talk had been in search of new hosts after Sharon Osbourne, Carrie Ann Inaba and Elaine Welteroth exited the show earlier this year.
Following the announcement of her departure, Natalie shared a pic on her Instagram, toasting to new adventures.
