On Friday, Morales emailed NBC employees announcing that she was leaving « for an exciting new opportunity » after more than two decades on the Peacock Network.

« How do you start to say thank you for 22 great years? I have a hard time finding the right words and there are way too many people to thank for wonderful careers at NBC News, « Morales said in the email Page Six received.

“I think back to my early days cutting my teeth at [NBC’s own local area network] WVIT in Hartford, CT, and then the big – and then – petrifying leap to MSNBC and sadly – the golden tickets to the ‘Today Show’ won ‘and’ Date Line ‘. I would never have imagined this in a million years when I dreamed of what I wanted to be when I grew up, « she wrote.

Morales was pushed around 30 rock for years – mostly as a newscaster on the show » Today “During the Matt Lauer years. In 2016, she left Today and headed for the West Coast to anchor the broadcaster’s Access Hollywood news magazine. Former « Extra » presenter Mario Lopez eventually replaced her on « Access », but she stayed with NBC as the West Coast anchor for « Today » and correspondent for « Dateline ».

« For my show families ‘Dateline’ and Today it is very difficult to say goodbye … and we all know that in this business it is never a goodbye, but see you later. I am eternally grateful for the support and the deep friendships that will last no matter where our paths lead. I have so much to thank for and for each of you who helped me get here… vielísimas gracias mis amigos, ”she said in the email.
